3.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Review: could be worse/nice seeing once, isn't the hit movie of the franchise July 1 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am a fan of the series (and American Pie), which is a large part of why I got it. It isn't the first Van, if that's what you're looking for. And it's not Taj from the second one. So some people may be disappointed.

Do I think people will enjoy it? It has its ups and downs. The best thing I would compare it to would be something like "American Pie: Book of Love" in that it's part of a greater series that has done well, but it is not the main hit movie. Therefore, if you come with an open mind, it could be enjoyable to see; but a hard critic of the series will not enjoy this movie.

Freshman Year is everything it claims to be. Van Wilder is ready to party even if he has to liberate the entire school. This one is funnier than the last one. Don't miss it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Worse than I had hoped, watch the supplements only... July 10 2009
By Steve Kuehl - Published on
Format: DVD
This is being called a prequel, but I would call it more of a stand alone mess that has nothing to do with the Wilder franchise. In fact, I actually had a funner time watching the loads of supplements on the Unrated DVD, and they actually give this product an extra star.

There are quite a few acting unknowns in this film, so I do not see any particular fan base looking forward to this, but they manage to make the corn somewhat tolerable, but in the end not rewatchable in any way. There is plenty of nudity, drinking, drugs and bad acting to go around, but things were so bad in this one, they had actually reversed the negative in a few scenes without correcting it (amongst other issues).

I recommend watching the supplements and skipping the film. For the nudity seekers watch the Teacher's Pet sequence (essentially all the sex and nude scenes put together), for the dog fans watch the Balls Out clip, for the Hills fans - watch the Decatur sequence; it is actually a funny slam on that lame show. The Bloopers reel is funnier than the entire film and looked better than any of the jokes left in the movie. The Party Supplies and Orientation Video add more to the mix of having better writing, and even the 25 minutes of the Creating documentary and Pranks make for a better self-involved watch. It was painful watching the one known actor (Kurt Fuller - been doing this for 25 years) having a dog crotch stuffed in his face over multiple takes and seeing his misery in earning a paycheck from a dumb movie.

Essentially, there is 100 minutes of film, or almost 90 minutes of extras - go with the extras. Film quality and sound are ok, performances are par for the content and the storyline was haphazard and unfunny. Skipper.
