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 »

This imitation of the original formula doesn't taste as good.
6 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie tries to follow the format of the original film. Thus, there are T&A galore, raunchy humor, bizarre characters, and wild parties. Bennett even kind of looks like Ryan Reynolds.

But generally, this flick doesn't do it as good as the original. Some of the jokes are kind of funny, but most are tepid or even complete knockoffs of old jokes I've heard before. While the original used eccentric characters and outlandish situations as springboards for humor, this one just goes deep into Bizzaro World (a college run by its ROTC director, who has posted "No Partying" and "No Kissing" signs, and can involuntarily enroll students in ROTC?).

Bennett decently mimicked Reynolds, but he didn't have the same charisma. Cavallari was charismatic, though, and I liked her as the love interest. Meredith Giangrande was downright sexy as forbidden- fruit Eve.

If you love being grossed out, this film ups the ante from the first one on the disgusting factor, although that's not particularly my thing. I do have to say, however, that the soft-porn aspects of this film are better than the original. There are scenes involving girls with vibrators, and a sex-ed class that illustrates intriguing positions (although with clothes on, but still), which may almost make you forget you're watching a comedy.
