National Lampoon's Van Wilder
24 August 2007
Conclusion: 'National Lampoon's Van Wilder' isn't the sort of film critics rave about, and true to form I personally can't stand its heavy-handed, lumbering approach to getting laughs. Still, while the film certainly has its fans, even die-hards are likely to have a tough time with this Blu-ray release. The video transfer is flat and dull, and the supplements (while plentiful) are exceedingly superficial and repetitive.
Conclusion: In its own little fraternity, National Lampoon's Van Wilder is a perfectly fine film, and fans of raunchy skit-based Comedies with an underlying story line meant to lend a hint of cohesion to the series of gags will enjoy it well enough. Coming out to play with the well-to-do graduates of the genre, however, the film quickly earns itself a failing grade thanks not necessarily to lack of effort but definitely to an absence of originality.
