Product Description

The man. The myth. The beginning. It's freshman year at Coolidge College and Van Wilder (Jonathan Bennett) is ready to party. To his dismay, all the girls have taken a vow of chastity and an uptight Dean (Kurt Fuller) rules the school. Van embarks on an epic crusade to land the campus hottie, Kaitlin (Kristin Cavallari) and liberate his school from sexual oppression and party dysfunction. No cheerleader will be left untouched and no keg will be left un-tapped in this hilarious prequel to the original!

I am a fan of the series (and American Pie), which is a large part of why I got it. It isn't the first Van, if that's what you're looking for. And it's not Taj from the second one. So some people may be disappointed.

Do I think people will enjoy it? It has its ups and downs. The best thing I would compare it to would be something like "American Pie: Book of Love" in that it's part of a greater series that has done well, but it is not the main hit movie. Therefore, if you come with an open mind, it could be enjoyable to see; but a hard critic of the series will not enjoy this movie.

What a shame how much I like Jonathan Bennett. he was wasted here. the rest of this "cast" deserve to never work again. He had the only real shot but couldn't make it happen, he was hampered by bad direction, dialog, story....not a funny think in sight....wait do you hear that sound ....THUD...many careers crashing. they should at least try for a few laughs still the first is the only good one.

Typical movie of this series. Kinda makes one wonder how college people ever make it in the "real world" all things considered! Even if this IS "just a movie"... too many people take it as "this is how things are supposed to be"!

For those of us who were in college when the first Van Wilder came out, it's safe to say we've probably seen it a dozen times or more. Ryan Reynolds, Kal Penn, and Tara Reid made that movie a college cult classic. In my fraternity house it was Animal House, Road Trip, and Van Wilder. The second installment (The Rise of Taj) wasn't quite up to par with the original, but it was respectable in its own way, especially since Kall Penn came back. Van Wilder: Freshman Year doesn't deserve to share the same title. Jonathan Bennett obviously studied the mannerisms of Ryan Reynolds, but ended up delivering a poor immitation of Van not worthy of appearing on amateur night at a dive comedy club. He doesn't come close to portraying the original Van Wilder character. Kristin Cavallari (while smokin' hot) is far from convincing in what her character was supposed to be. The highlight of the movie for me was to see that they brought back the original bull dog, who ended up having more laughs than any of the human characters. Jerry Shea, as the funny foreign student, has a few mildly funny moments, but is a far cry from the original foreigner we all know as Taj. The only reason this movie would be of any interest to anybody is that it provides a regular shot of topless girls every twenty minutes or so just to hold the audience's attention. Those reviewers giving it a good rating are can't possibly be any more than juvenile teens just happy to see a quick flash of boobs on screen that they can slow down and watch frame by frame. If you're a fan of the first one (or two), and absolutely MUST see the third installment, please don't waste your money buying it -- rent it or get it on demand. Otherwise, you're going to feel severely ripped off.

This movie really sucked. I only watched it because someone I know is in it. He must not have read the script before he took on the part! If you are an adolescent male or have the mentality of one, you may enjoy this. Gross humor, lots of boobs.

Van Wilder Freshman Year, wow what a major waste of film, studio time, and some pretty women.

National Lampoon's Van Wilder - Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition), Ryan Reynolds, and Kal Penn - great chemistry, funny men together. Kal acted like he was Ryan Reynolds' straightman, but it may have been the other way around. The film was a bit dragged down with Tara Reid, but otherwise, funny movie. The second one, Van Wilder - The Rise of Taj, lost Ryan Reynolds, but we got to keep Kal Penn. Funny man on his own, fairly fresh off of Harold and Kumar. Rise of Taj, not a bad movie, not as funny as number one, but OK.

And then we get this movie, Freshman Year. Ouch. Both stars are gone. At first it seems like the Asian guy will take the place of Kal Penn as Van Wilder's gopher. But nope, after a while it becomes clear, the new Van Wilder, Johathan Bennet, will carry all the jokes. Ouch, he's not funny. Although those eyebrows were kind of extra thick, he had a shot at doing some Groucho imitations.

This movie has followed the American Pie path - number one was excellent. Number two was OK. Number three the wedding, was less good. And finally number four was just downright awful, not a single original star was there. At least American Pie tried to flow with the original story, the fourth one was Stifler's younger brother. Van Wilder: Freshman Year, just made no sense at all.

Why in the world did I rate this movie two stars? Well, the women they found for this movie were very pretty.

I thought this would be at least a decent movie, but it was an utter waste of time. The main character is nothing more than annoying and is predictable in every way.
