Van Wilder Deux: The Rise of Taj


In this sequel to “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder,” Taj, Van Wilder’s assistant in the first film, heads out on his own to England’s prestigious Camden University to further his studies. Along the way, he adopts a group of misfits and shows the uptight student body how to get Wilder!

Dove Review

This film is geared toward young adults in their late teens and early twenties-young adults who, if they see this film, will be exposed to sex outside of marraige, nudity, drinking and smoking, and a ton of filthy language. There are no consequences for actions in this film, other than a snooty young man losing his girlfriend to the main male lead, and the same snooty man steals some upcoming college tests and plants them in his enemies’ home, but faces the consequences later on.

With a ton of objectionable content, this film cannot be approved by Dove.
