Van Wilder: Party liaison

Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

He was born to be wilder!

He's the biggest man on campus. He's the boss with the sauce. He's the guy all the girls want and all the guys want to be. Because, in the university jungle, there can be only one king... and at Coolidge College it's Van Wilder (Ryan Reynolds).

Van's been "the man" at Coolidge these past seven years because... when you love a place, why leave it? His dorm room is totally tricked out with the comforts of home... if home happens to be MTV's Real World. With a full-time assistant, a personalised golf cart and immediate entree into every club committee, frat house, classroom and administrative office, there's no place he'd rather be, doing the thing he does best: helping out the underdog! with A heart minted in 24k gold, Van uses his influence, wiles and considerable charms to help the "loser" be a winner - from the virginal foreign exchange student to the sickest kid on campus, or the downcast underclassman who just needs to hear his inspirational, homespun wisdom to get back on up.

Trouble is, this professional student has just found himself without any tuition money to pursue his continuing education. That is, until he makes his social talents pay huge dividends by starting a business planning the greatest parties any university has ever seen! It isn't long before his talent catches the eye of a serious (but sexy) student journalist who's out to discover what lies beneath Van's wilder exterior.

Theatrical report

If you're down with the 21st century blues or you haven't gotten over your millennial angst, Van Wilder: Party liaison is the perfect mindless, cute, funny, sexy joke film to take your mind off it all.

Ryan Reynolds is charmingly harmless, cute and has some great comic talents. Kal Penn is naïvely sweet, the perfect, excitable foil to Ryan's deadpan hero. Tara Reid does well as the babe factor. There are also some nipple shots if that is what you look for in a movie.

If Van Wilder: Party liaison doesn't put at least a smirk on your face then you need to go on Prozac. Cheer up, it may never happen.
