Very similar to the first film, not quite as funny or original as that one though. Still if you liked the original a lot, you'll get some laughs out of this.

Totally hilarious and hotter since American Pie: Beta House because it made me drool and couldn't stop laughing. Jonathan Bennett does not have the same charisma as Ryan Reynolds, however, he is excellent in this role.
The script is well written and quite funny, the acting is fairly good, about as good as you would expect from a movie of this type. It is truly amazing how decent storyline's and decent acting can do to make a very enjoyable movie.The truth is I haven't seen the classic comedy Van Wilder yet.

It's not going to win an Oscar for sure so leave your brain at home and enjoy it for what it is.....another typical college movie filled with beers, hot naked gals, dildos and a few laughs.

This film seems to run just like an '80s teen comedy..and a bad one at that. There are a some amusing moments. Jonathan Bennett holds some charm, but lacks more of that charm, as well as the charisma that Ryan Reynolds had in the original. Whatever happened to Kristin Cavalleri (Kaitlin) in the original? Her character was far more interesting than Tara Reid's. Interesting side note: Bennett also starred in the "Dukes of Hazzard" prequel. This one is a lot better than that.

this was okay but it's completely obvious why it's a straight-to-dvd film and I'm kinda sick of these movies just using a well-known name so more people will watch it...It was sort of funny though.

This movie was exactly what a thought it would be. Pretty cheesy and slightly stupid, with a couple laughs and some boobs thrown in for entertainment value. I think they can let the Van Wilder cash cow die. Quickly put her out of her misery, before anyone gets the not so bright idea to make another one.
Jonathan Bennett is a little cutie. And although he did channel some of Ryan Reynold's mannerism as Van, you just can't have Van Wilder without the hotness or cutting whit that is Mr. Reynolds.
I will say that Kristin Cavallari is very pretty and she did a good job as Kaitlin.

You pretty much get what you would expect froom the film, lots of t&a, gross out humor, crude laughs and no substance whatsoever.

The first Van Wilder was actually a rather good comedy and the funny Ryan Reynolds played Van in that flick along with a few other famous actors. The 2nd was not as good and fell on the "decent" level category. In this 3rd movie Van is back but played by an unknown actor to me altho he did actually a pretty nice role but can't compete with Ryan as Van Wilder. The story is a goofy and hilarious like always in American Pie spirit all the way. Parties and hot naked girls with a few jokes here and there to sum it up. Its not to bad and if you can't enough of this genre i can warmly recommend it i guess.

This movie is so bad and is so not the prequel it should be it should be erased from the books. DO NOT WATCH, its a complete waste of time.

I'm judging myself for ever watching this movie. It was absolutely disgusting and barely funny.

Apart the heroine is hot, the movie is just below average. No where near to American pie series.

Totally laugh-free. Insane continuity issues. Jonathan Bennett has the comic timing of an umbrella. Even a fan of the first two won't be able to enjoy this one.

Awful. I hated the first one too, but at least Ryan Reynolds was marginally likable.
This Van Wilder is not funny, or clever. He's just an asshole. A spoiled, rich kid, who lives a fantasy life and never fails. At least the first film had established the character, and maybe you could see girls going for him, this one has women all over him despite having zero charisma. Everything just falls magically into place for him, with little rhyme or reason.
Not to mention, his father having a complete role reversal from the first film. So he's a party guy now?

Chinese people talk funny? Way to have your finger on the pulse of comedy guys.

Basically, soft core porn wish fulfillment.
If you still high five people, collect Maxim magazine, and use the word "brah", think a great Halloween costume this year would be a "sexy" anything, you'll love this movie.

If your knuckles don't drag on the ground, you'll hate it.

Funny and dumb at the same time!

although its a dumb idea to remake van wilder a second time, its pretty funny. this feels like one of the american pie films which are somewhat funny but its just not a good movie. it'll have you laughing, but its nothing more than a teen gross out comedy. you don't really feel the connection between the two leads, but theres a lot of goofy characters and funny ideas that fuel this somewhat romantic teen comedy.

Would entertain 8-10yrs old boys who have no internet, or guys w/ a 50IQ but otherwise there are better films.
This has no story, no acting.
Boring, dull sameoljokesoverandoveragain.
A waste of time and $.
With this much effort they could just keep the good looking girls/guys and make a porn movie with hints of comedy that would worth more than this comedy wannabe trying to be porn.

This is one of the funniest films i have seen in a long time.
Well worth watching.
