All things considered, National Lampoon's Van Wilder just doesn't fit the National Lampoon brand.
December 26, 2010
The grossest, most disgusting humor imaginable.

April 29, 2009
Rude, crude, obnoxious, disgusting, and unfunny...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 8, 2008
Strangely likable and only about half as puerile as the average MTV reality series.
December 2, 2006
I know it's harder to write good jokes than it is rotten ones, but based on what's displayed here, it doesn't seem like the effort was even made.

There's one saving grace: Reynolds may look a lot like NL's Chevy Chase, but, hey, he's actually quite likeable.

...I will admit to having chuckled at an Erik Estrada cameo...

Compare it to the recent Cameron Diaz-starring disaster The Sweetest Thing and you'll reckon it deserves an Oscar.

...Mainly a collection of dumb sight gags, gross-out jokes, and comic sex, with a dull-as-dishwater premise and a spotty cast list.

While Van Wilder may not be the worst National Lampoon film, it's far from being this generation's Animal House.

Writers Brent Goldberg and David Wagner apparently saw no reason to bother with anything so sophisticated as, say, story or characters.

The film is all over the place, really. It dabbles all around, never gaining much momentum.

October 2, 2002
Ho hum. Another week, another grossout teen comedy.
October 2, 2002
The filmmakers use the fact they are making a film about underachieving as an excuse to do just that and Van Wilder, while aspiring to be Ferris Bueller, comes off more like Grange Hill's Roland Browning
September 9, 2002
Strangely comes off as a kingdom more mild than wild.
September 9, 2002
Enthusiastically taking up the current teen movie concern with bodily functions, Walt Becker's film pushes all the demographically appropriate comic buttons.

September 9, 2002
Its gross-out gags and colorful set pieces... are of course stultifyingly contrived and too stylized by half. Still, it gets the job done -- a sleepy afternoon rental.

What more can be expected from a college comedy that's target audience hasn't graduated from junior high school?

While it may look like any other campus comedy at first glance, Van Wilder is actually different from the rest, with its refreshing, fun-filled and wacky script.
