Storyline

Having graduated in the US as Van Wilder disciple, now self-confident Taj Mahal. arrives as 'don' (teaching assistant) history at England's super-prestigious Cambridge. He falls victim to the haughty, aristocratic leading fraternity's aristocratic president Pip's usual prank for 'commoners', landing in the derelict 'barn' with other 'social outcasts'. But Taj decides to band the rejects into a new fraternity, Cocks & Bulls, which under his leadership challenges Pip's in the annual all-round excellence championship. Written by KGF Vissers

Fun, its just not Van Wilder, thats the problem
4 October 2010 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

To be honest, you take this movie as a stand alone, its correct, sure its stereotyped at max, but which comedy dosen't do that? Especially the ones setting in University. If you are watching these kind of movies hoping to see reel stuff, you will see students in class and studying 90% of the time...would be a fun movie right? lol. Anyway basically i am a huge fan of Van Wilder, and without Van, it wasen't Van Wilder... thats the problem. This movie should have do better without the title it got, i know they tried to capitalize on the name, but problem is that people where just so much expecting a similar movie to Van Wilder that in the end... it didn't do as good. So personally yeah i enjoyed it, not as much as the first movie and neither as the third, but still enough to have a good time.
