To Van Wilder (Ryan Reynolds), college doesn't get you ready for life, it is life. So when his father puts a stop to his cash flow, it looks like the party might finally be over for Van.
Van Wilder (Ryan Reynolds) has managed to spend a decade loafing at college by deliberately failing his finals each year. When his dad wakes up and pulls his funding, Van turns to his party-organising skills and big-man-on-campus image to pay his way. Complications arise when an aspiring college-rag journo (Tara Reid--the girlfriend of the wimpy one in American Pie) shows an interest, and Van begins to question his bachelor-boy lifestyle.
Though Van Wilder: Party Liaison contains the occasional clever line ("at least Ms Pacman swallows") and a nice self-referential appearance from Tim Matheson--the original college lothario from the archetypal (and still the best) frat-kids movie, Animal House--it's still fundamentally flawed. It's difficult, for one thing, to believe in the appalling central character's great popularity with his peers--the Fonze he ain't. It's also evident that Reynolds has watched one too many Jim Carrey performances, while Reid's role reduces her to being little more than insubstantial eye-candy. The film's makers have been so anxious to get in all the required references (pot-smoking, bodily functions and nudity) that they've forgotten to make it any good. Worse, along the way it takes cheap gratuitous pot shots at the disabled, the ugly, the old and the obese.
Though it purports to be a "party-on" parable, then, its predictably corny denouement and the conventional values it ultimately espouses reek of Republican morality. There are probably worse ways to spend an hour-and-a-half, but it would be hard to call them to mind when watching this execrable, formulaic drivel--do yourself a favour and enjoy American Pie again instead. --Paul Eisinger

I am currently watching this film while writing the view , it shows his charming yet witty sense of humour but also shows he has feelings too , a must watch indeed
It became one of my favourite comedies.
OK typical US college Fraternity gags, but it doesn't seem to matter because they at times seem fresh and different.
Only one bit of the film and to this day still makes me urge, I won't say what it is, but for those that are fans of the film you will know which bit I mean.
The film deserves its place in the vault of the National Lampoon franchise.
I am slightly offended by another reviewers comments that parents will all find this film too immature. Not all us mums and dads are old farts! I have watched this over and over again, and have even sneaked it out of my daughters dvd player late at night and watched it downstairs on my own, all the while smothering my face with a cushion to muffle my laughter!
The whole film screams of pure comedy genius. Everything about it is just hilarious, including 'that' cake scene! The one liners are heard daily in my house and now also at my daughter's school.
If you enjoyed the American Pies, Road Trip and Say It Isn't So, multiply your enjoyment by about 100% and that's roughly the amount you'll get out of this!
Write That Down!
Ryan Reynolds very funny, Tara Reid looking great and with Taj the bumbling, comic, 'innocent' sidekick - a must see film
5 out of 5 easily
Tara Reid manages to pulls of the struggling blonde reporter after a story on our main character, and the chemistry is there between them.
Overall if you liked Road Trip and American Pie this one is for you, if however you prefer more complex comedies then you may want to stay clear of this one.
grab your mate and a takeaway and have a party with this one!

Funny, not too over the top, a bit of a message within (how unusual for this type of film), but still a romp.Published 4 months ago by David G Steel
Love this film, so much.
The US import blu ray I received does work on UK PAL players.
