Van Wilder (Jonathan Bennett) has graduated from high school. He is supposed to go on a road trip to Amsterdam with his dad (Linden Ashby), but his dad is busy with work, so Van goes alone. Van ends up going to Coolidge College, following family tradition. His family has their name on a building there, Wilder Hall. However, when he gets there, Coolidge is no longer the laid-back school of his dad’s time, but a military-based institution run by Dean Reardon (Kurt Fuller).Reardon, a military man who despises the senior Wilder, wants to take out his aggression on Van. He cannot force him out because his dad is wealthy and has ties to the school, so he tries to make Van’s life a living hell. Van turns a one bedroom dorm into a two bedroom (by breaking down a wall). His roommate is Farley (Nestor Aaron Absera), a pothead from Jamaica. The boys decide to throw a party on campus, which is against the rules, along with kissing, drugs, alcohol, sex, or anything else that is ‘fun’. The only person to show up to the party is Yu Dum Fok (Jerry Shea). The boys then encounter a group of Christian, prudish girls led by Eve (Meredith Giangrande).After Eve throws sacramental wine on them, Van pulls a prank during church. Reardon knows Van is behind the prank, so he commands his ROTC students, Dirk (Steve Talley) and his closeted sidekick Corporal Benedict (Nick Nicotera), on Van, trying to make him crack. Van falls for Dirk’s girlfriend, Kaitlin (Kristin Cavallari), causing Dirk to get even more angry. Kaitlin thinks, lives, and breathes the military, and believes in chastity before marriage. After playing a military game with Reardon that results in him stepping down as dean and being tasered, Van and Kaitlin end up together and Van decides to finish college. The film ends as Van leaves Dirk and Benedict tied to each other in their underwear.The first thing that hits you right in the face is Jonathan Bennett’s immense effort to look and act like Ryan Reynolds . Because, lets face it, he probably isn’t that good an actor by himself. Also Kristin Cavallari is insanely sexy and hot. The plot is the same as in many other college movies of this kind and the first Van Wilder movie also. I have no problem with that, but in that movie Van Wilder is actually a compassionate human being, rather than an all out party and sex animal. Here we have his two friends, one a pot-head Jamaican and the other is a Chinese named, Yu Dumb Fok . There is also his dog, Collosus’s origin story here! There were some pretty hilarious moments though; the dildos beneath the bench at church was awesome, the dog sucking the Dean was funny too. Other than that, this was just another excuse to get girls naked and a cheap rip-off the Van Wilder franchise.
