Goofs

During the war games, there is a scene where three camouflage clad girls are standing in a lake enticing a group of soldiers to come skinny dipping with them. The girls remove their shirts, one of which is now bare breasted, the other two having on a black and flesh colored bra, respectively. The soldiers are then shown running into the water and frolicking with the girls, who are all shirtless, and are not holding any of their removed clothing. In a following quick cut distant shot, the three girls are all shown once again with their tops back on, without having had any time to pick up their shirts and get redressed. See more »

It's no Ryan Reynolds...
7 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

...But it's still pulled off pretty well. What you have to remember is that this movie wasn't created with hopes that it would win an Oscar.

Sure, it doesn't have what the original title had, but i'm sure fans of Van Wilder will find Freshman Year a movie worthy of a few laughs.

Jonathan Bennett, who plays Van, plays the character brilliantly and as close to Ryan Reynolds as you can possibly get.

The ending leaves room for a forth, so I, along with many other fans i'm sure, are hoping for another.

I can almost certainly say that the majority if not all critics will say only bad things about this movie. But i can certainly say they don't and probably wont ever get the point of movies like this. It's not just another "stoner movie" it's a movie for people who appreciate a laugh.
