American Wedding Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

There is a certain segment of the readership at Blu-ray.com for whom a review of a Universal catalogue title is only credible if it complains about "DNR". Since that term has been corrupted by misuse, the previous sentence contains the sole occurrence you'll find in this review, and those readers may be disappointed.

Still, all is not well with the 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of American Wedding. Black levels and contrast are appropriate, and colors appear suitably saturated without bleeding and are generally natural except where they're not supposed to be, as in, for example, the gay bar where Stifler has a dance-off, and on the two guests of honor at Jim's bachelor party, of whom it can be fairly said that not one single attribute looks the slightest bit natural (if you know what I mean).

The problem comes in the area of detail and definition. The image on American Wedding is somewhat indistinct: not "soft" in a manner that suggests a particular style in the original photography, and not "blurry" in a way that suggests poor source material. No, this one looks very much like the unfortunate effect of high-frequency filtering that went too far and resulted in some amount of image detail being removed. The effect is relatively minor, but there shouldn't be any at all. (And note that the impact may vary depending on your equipment; in my experience, plasma and LCD displays are generally less forgiving when it comes to such post- processing.) The effect can also be seen in the film's grain patterns, which look natural enough—no clumping, freezing or "hanging"—but are unusually faint, almost as if they'd been partially "erased".

As I have written elsewhere, there are both aesthetic and philosophical dimensions to the decision to eliminate or minimize grain in movies shot on film. In a world where cinema is dominated by digital intermediates, digital video and digital projection, we are quickly reaching a point where most viewers don't even know how film grain is supposed to look. I happen to be against grain removal, even though digital tools have progressed to the point where it can be done without also losing fine detail. But if you're going to do it, that's the only way to do it, and Universal didn't do so here.


American Wedding Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The most aggressive sequence in American Wedding's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is Stifler's "dance-off" with Bear in an ornate Chicago gay bar. The multiple plot contrivances required to set up the scene are too, well, contrived to bear repeating, but when the two guys hit the dance floor to a medley of Eighties club favorites, the sub pounds, the front mains pulse, and the surrounds fill with the whoops and cheers of the crowd. The scene goes on a lot longer than anyone expects, and the sound mix is at least as much fun as the goofy antics of Stifler and Bear.

Numerous other scenes use the surround field effectively to add impact and ambiance, e.g., Stifler's confrontation with Jim on the football field, surrounded by Stifler's team, over whether Jim will invite him to the wedding. The track has wide dynamic range, and it's been well mixed to accommodate dialogue from a chorus of different voices and speaking styles, from Stifler's stentorian cursing to Michelle's warble to the sotto voce counseling of Jim's Dad. All of it is perfectly intelligible. The underscoring by Christopher Beck (The Hangover) blends seamlessly with the selection of pop songs by Foo Fighters and others.
