I'm a picky moviegoer, and I tend to issue ratings weighted towards the
middle (ie more likely to give a 6 than a 7, and more likely to give a 4
than a 3). So when I give a movie an 8, as I did this, I have to really
it. I'm 18. the whole thing is targeted at my demographic, so if you are
older than 30 (exceptions allowed if you are extremely fond of your
days) or younger than, say, 15 (except if you have some college experience
or are somehow otherwise interested in it), chances are you might not like
it as much as I did, not to say it wouldn't be enjoyable. After I left the
theater, I thought to myself, 'yaknow, I don't want to like this movie. I really shouldn't like this movie. But I do. I really do'. There are plot gaps, and logic trips, and bad lines (including "let's get this man lei'd". Probably the most corny line ever in a movie I liked). Hot chicks though. That NEVER hurts. Tara Reid is REALLY hot in this one, and I'm not her biggest fan (She is a sh**ty actress, and her character here just barely holds water), but she is just smokin' ('nough said). A list of the reasons I liked this: A good deal of slapstick humor. Sex jokes galore. The ubiquitous as**ole who ends up getting screwed in numerous comical ways. The hero who you can't help but like (Reynolds really does a good job with this part). If you are debating whether to see it despite the bad reviews, go see it. Stuffy reviewers (The ones that work for the big papers and tv networks) don't get these movies, ever.
American Pie used to be the king of gross out/teen sex comedies. However In
My, and my friends opinions, there is a NEW king. National Lampoon's Van
Wilder. Yes, This movie is hilarious. Yes Tara Reid is AMAZINGLY gorgeous.
Yes the indian guy and Van are freaking hilarious. Yes the pastry scene is
perhaps the most disgusting thing ever filmed, but yes it is funny. I can't
say that enough (disgusting). And finally, yes, this movie has true
That is a rare find in this type of movie. It might actually have a small
effect on your life, another rare thing in this type of movie. Sure, not
everybdoy will like this but My friends and I, and pretty much everybody
else in my theatre sure as heck did, and It (the theatre) was packed at
A Solid 8.5/10.
PS: after seeing this you will have a newfound respect for bulldogs.
VAN WILDER IS THE FUNNIEST MOVIE I'VE SEEN IN A LOOOOOONG TIME!! I went to the 10:05am matinee show. There was only about 20 people in there. we were all busting up laughing! THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST SEE!! National Lampoon has definitely come up with a winner this time. I'M GOING BACK TO SEE IT AGAIN AND I NEVER DO THAT!
The movie was awesome. Yet I have a question about it. The music was quite awesome. There was one song that caught my ears and I'm dying to find out what its called. It goes, "shes saying goodbye, and leaving tonight, shes used up all her lonely tear drops now". I checked on the soundtrack and its not there. I previewed each one and found nothing. Would someone please help me to find out what the song is? Contact me!! Thanks!
This movie is in the true vein of Animial House. Ryan Reynolds is quite dynamic as the heir apparent to Tim Matheson's Otto. Even though this movie is not in any way related to that classic movie. Look for Revenge of the Nerd's Curtis Armstrong to steal all the scenes that he is in.
Van Wilder, what a character. Amusing movie, not ground breaking, but i'd say worth seeing. Ryan Renolds does well as the incredibly smooth 'Van Wilder', one of those 'Ferris Beuller' characters that everyone likes. Tara Reid struggles a bit, and doesn't really bring much to the movie, but she's hot, so her place is safe. All in all, a good movie. Very funny in some parts, with some classy Animal House reminiscent college humor, but not for the easily offended. Go and see it for a good laugh. 7 out of 10 -
Amusing Flick. Although my college career was a lot shorter (4 years,) and less fun than Van Wilder's I fully identified with how he didn't want to graduate and go out in the real world. The movie is not the next Animal House, despite what National Lampoon would like, but it was amusing and had me laughing till I was in pain at several points.-- Be warned though, a lot of the comedy is very crass, so if you don't like gross out humor- then this movie isn't for you.
This one the feel good movie of the spring. I have truly not seen a good over the top comedy, since last summer. When AP2 and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. This movie takes me back to great days of the 80's comedies and adds the 90's gross out humor that we all love. If you want to get away from your trouble for a hour and a half this is the movie to go see.
Basically this movie is great. None of the state of the art special effects, pretty plain camera work, but you can see past that in one second! The movie has a well thought of story line, and is put together in the most hilarious of all ways. Its rude, clever, gross and everything a teen movie should be.
I just saw this movie tonight at a special screening at my college. This has to be one of the best National Lampoon movies I have seen! Completely hilarious, I don't think I stopped laughing for more than five minutes.... except for the cannoli scene and the hoots, hollers, and whistles I gave during some of the scenes with Tara Reid (like the hockey scene and the final scene.) Ryan Reynolds (Van) reminds me through much of the movie of Chevy Chase in "Caddyshack", making some similar off the wall comments as Chevy made. Definately see this movie. See it once just to laugh. See it again to catch the plot bits you missed because you were laughing so hard.
