Sex, Romance & Nudity
Oy, where to begin? Characters have crude (and oral) sex in an airplane bathroom. References to "doing" people, erections, and just about every other crude sexual comment. Extreme cleavage and tight outfits on scantily clad women (and guys ogling them). Some nudity (men's bare butts, women's bare breasts). A dog has large testicles. A parent opens a door and nearly interrupts his son having sex.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that in terms of sex, language, and general overall crudeness, this is one of the worst movies ever made ... which is exactly why a lot of teens will probably want to see it. Much of the comedy revolves around sexually related dialogue and jokes (related to intercourse, oral sex, etc.), as well as some partial nudity (men's butts and women's breasts). Plenty of partying, irresponsibility, and all-around bad behavior tops it off. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
As you might imagine from the plot description, the movie involves many implausible and poorly scripted situations involving campus partying, drinking, sex, and crude humor. There's also a rivalry that develops between Taj and other students.
So what's the big problem? First of all, Van Wilder isn't even in this movie, so why name it VAN WILDER 2 (answer: to make the marketing folks' job that much easier)? Second, it's offensive, stupid, and completely pointless. Third -- oh, never mind. Just skip this movie and make sure your kids never see it.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
