Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj Movie Review

Ah, what a great weekend this was. It felt longer than it actually was, I finally made it to the theater and saw two fun movies (The Lookout and Shooter), actually cleaned my apartment and caught another couple movies on DVD.

The first and least desirable of the two is National Lampoon's Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj, which stars Kal Penn in the sequel no one wanted made in the first place. The first Van Wilder wasn't that great to begin with, but it had its moments - this second movie has even less originality and none of the edge of its predecessor. It isn't a complete disaster by any means, at least until the ending, where it all but crumbles into a million fragmented pieces of poo.

You can read my full Rise of Taj movie review here. The bottom line is this: who thought this movie would make any money? It looked awful, it is a sequel that would normally go direct-to-video and offers little way in the form of sex or nudity. There is no value proposition here!
