    I just watched this movie again last night. I really enjoyed it. Plus, it is funny to see Otter from Animal House as the straight laced dad.

    Hey Todd. What's happening. If you could go ahead and start this thread in the "Movies" forum, that would be terrific, OK?

    Matt, I thought I did. I wonder if it was moved or am I so tired as to put it into the wrong forum.

    I can't help but love this movie. It brings back good memories of college. Not only that, but we're also a big fan of Ryan from "Two Guys and a Girl". And I must admit that the menu for the UR DVD is the best menu ever, hands down.

    If Tara Reid would have showed up sober for filming, maybe it wouldve been a bit better.

    Ryan Reynolds has the smart-alecky schtick down pretty good ...

    Very funny film and does not deserve all the bad press it got, haven't seen it for a while it is probably due for a rewatch. I can not think of anyone that I know that actually likes this film.

    The thing that bugged me most about the movie is that Tara Reid is spending all that time with Van Wilder to write some big article about him and then at the end, the article ends up being like 2 paragraphs long. I also recall thinking that the Hockey scene was ripped off from Happy Gilmore. The rest reminded me of a cinema version of "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" only much more lewd.

    Some amusing moments, explosive diarherra scenes are always funny, but nowhere near the level of the classics of this type of genre.

    I concur, Van Wilder is a fantasy of what college can and should be.

    I remember the one time i got to ride golf carts around the UF campus, and yes, it is every bit as fun as it looks in the movie. Too bad the cops stop you!

    Agreed on both the UR menus and on how funny this movie is. [​IMG]
