If comedy classic "Van Wilder" were a student film...
DisOrientation is a college comedy that borrows heavily from Ryan Reynolds' turn as the titular Van Wilder but with a cocaine habit and less charm. Just like Van Wilder, our hero, Finn takes an geeky freshman under his wing who is far too awkward to be believable. A token black friend, who is literally referred to as such for a laugh, also drifts in and out but as he has nothing of importance to say or do that joke really falls flat.
Typical of this genre, our heroes are tormented by a group of stereotypical alpha male bullies who rack up the majority of the profanity in the script. This also fails to amuse as the insults they hurl sound like the stuff nine year old boys would construct out of ignorance. The rest of the film is a mildly funny pastiche of seemingly endless vomit gags and less than the appropriate amount of nudity that a sub par script of this genre would normally require. The movie does end with a legitimately funny, homo- erotic prank which I caught while channel flipping. It was enough to make me set a recording for the next airing which turned out to be a waste of time.
