Van Wilder is less funny than the average R-rated comedy

People looking for a funny, R-rated, raunchy comedy should be at the end of their ropes before watching Van Wilder. Van Wilder relies more on gross-out pranks and sexual situations, then on funny dialogue. Therefore, mostly teens will find this humor funny, while adults are likely to sigh, thinking "what disgusting act will come next?" Parents should know that this movie has tons and tons of references to sex acts, bodily functions, and body parts. The movie opens with a scene of what the audience thinks is oral sex (what we later find out is that it's a woman fixing a mans pants, while sucking on a lollipop.) A man describes with graphic detail about how he came to America to have all kinds of sex. A man is tricked by an elderly woman into having sex with her. There are 2 scenes of sex, and many bare breasts and a bare butt. One person almost has sex, but gets his back lit on fire and falls out of a window (the person is fine and it's all comical). A group of people masturbate a dog with very big testicles, and then a different group of people unknowingly eat twinkies filled with the dogs semen. There is are a couple of f**ks, s**ts, and many slang terms for sex acts and body parts. There is also use of marijuana through a bong and a group of 8 year olds, who drink till they throw-up. This movie reminded me of Animal House, so people who enjoyed that might have fun with Van Wilder. However it is likely, that many will just be bored by Van Wilder.

Humurous but definately not for kids.

It has lots of nudity, sexuality throughout and intensively strong language.

VAN WILDER is an exceptionally funny but explicit movie. Basically an ANIMAL HOUSE for the new generation. Sex-10: Nudity including male, female and animal, sexual content including situations and references. Language-8 1/2: Very strong language Violence-0 Drugs-0 Racism-7: Sterotyped indian character My Rating: R for strong sexuality/nudity and some language
