Reynolds is the best thing about Van Wilder.

Entertainment Weekly
Studded with Lampoon/John Hughes anachronisms.

Philadelphia Inquirer
The result is a movie that is both laugh-out-loud funny and cringe-worthily silent.

An unabashedly bad movie full of cliches, claptrap, fairly good rock 'n' roll and stomach-turning gross-out gags.

Chicago Sun-Times
Laughter for me was such a physical impossibility during National Lampoon's Van Wilder that had I not been pledged to sit through the film, I would have lifted myself up by my bootstraps and fled.

Has to go down as a failed comedy. It's just not enough of a comedy.

Even by teen gross-out movie standards Van Wilder makes "Sorority Boys" look like "Some Like It Hot."

New York Daily News
A movie that shouldn't be allowed on the same campus as "Animal House."
25
Miami Herald
This utter waste of time has next-to-nothing to do with the infinitely wittier golden-age National Lampoon movies.

Baltimore Sun
A very funny movie ... in some alternate universe, maybe.

Rolling Stone
Painfully flat gross-out comedy.
