This is shocking only for its tepidness; except for some raunchy language, it's ready-made for basic cable.

Screw Tara Reid! Who needs her in this movie. We've got a cockney girl with huge knockers.

Penn is capable of so much more.

National Lampoon recycles countless collegiate comedies for this spin-off sequel.

From haphazard editing to clueless cinematography to godawful acting to gaping plot holes to zero laughs to low production values, this sorry sequel has all the earmarks of your classic 'take the money and run' ripoff.

Everything old is old again in this rickety extension of 2002's already rickety Van Wilder.

There was a hedonistic amorality and joyous celebration of privilege in the first Van Wilder that's missing from its sequel. That's fine with me. I hated that movie.

Taj plays like a very bad combination of Revenge of the Nerds and Harry Potter.

Britain and India face off in National Lampoon's Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj, a strained attempt to transplant the American campus comedy to more uptight shores.

Van Wilder 2's sense of numbing familiarity is not enhanced by director Mort Nathan's apparent unfamiliarity with the entire filmmaking process.

Some movies are Hollywood's version of littering: Like half-eaten pizzas or rancid burgers, these flicks are tossed aside to rot in empty cinemas.

It's hard to fathom why this didn't go straight to video, or maybe even YouTube.

Before a schmaltzy, earnest ending, Taj manages to score with exactly one decent joke. It's about British colonialism, it's in the trailer and you can see it on the Internet for free.
