Content:

(PaPaPa, LLL, V, SSS, NN, AA, DD, MMM) Very strong pagan worldview focused on young adults seeking sex, alcohol and victory in a school contest; at least 17 obscenities (including one "f" word), two strong profanities, 14 light profanities, and a steady stream of sexual innuendo and conversations about sex and sex organs using crude slang and double entendres; light slapstick violence includes paintball game, with people being shot in private parts, head-butts, and a fencing scene with comical violence; very strong sexual content includes lots of implied fornication, implied oral sex, many sexual jokes and intentionally funny slang terms used, people often express desires for fornication and oral sex, implied sex between dogs, and people are sprayed with dog semen; repeated upper female nudity and some rear male nudity; alcohol use and drunken parties; smoking, marijuana use in one scene and dog is drugged for pornographic purposes; and, dishonesty and trickery, but snobbery rebuked, but in a very crude way.

Summary:

NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VAN WILDER DEUX: THE RISE OF TAJ opens with Taj being invited into the lavatory of a jetliner for some sexual activity involving hot sauce. It descends from there. Everything about this movie is predictably disgusting, right down to a dog being drugged so as to turn a dog show into a doggie porn show.

Review:

NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VAN WILDER DEUX: THE RISE OF TAJ opens with Taj Badalandabad (Kal Penn) being invited into the lavatory of a jetliner for some sexual activity involving hot sauce. If that’s not low enough, the movie goes downhill from there.

Taj arrives in England to attend Camford University and accept an invitation to join an exclusive fraternity, the Fox and Hounds. Upon arrival, he learns he has not been invited to join the fraternity and must instead live with a small group of sex-crazed dysfunctional misfits. The false invitation turned out to be a running bad joke the snobs in the Fox and Hounds enjoy playing on numerous victims.

The predictable script pits Taj’s dysfunctional misfits against the Fox and Hounds in a quest for the Camford Cup, a trophy annually won by the Fox and Hounds. So, who do you think wins this year? Duhh.

Everything about this movie is predictably disgusting, right down to a dog being drugged so as to turn a dog show into a doggie porn show. Some of the female characters are nymphomaniacs and others lean in that direction. The male characters, including Taj’s father, glorify the idea of fornicating with many women.

This is the kind of movie that says to college students, “If you’re not having sex with someone new on a regular basis, you’re less cool than the nerd in our movie who finally got in on the action himself.” While there is a joke in the movie about venereal disease, no one gets a disease, no one gets pregnant and no one gets sick or dies from binge drinking, even though one of the “fun games” in the Camford Cup competition is a speed beer-drinking contest.

In the real world, sinful behavior has dire consequences. People do get venereal diseases, girls do get pregnant from one-night stands, and binge drinkers can wind up dead. When movies trivialize and glamorize sin, they poison the minds of their audience. When Hollywood pours out a steady diet of poison like BEERFEST, BORAT, SCHOOL FOR SCOUNDRELS, and VAN WILDER DEUX they pollute society. If the major film companies were pouring millions of gallons of toxic chemicals into the Mississippi River, executives might have trouble sleeping at night, but they spew out filth like VAN WILDER DEUX with a sense of pride. No respectable human being should want their name in the credits of a travesty like this.

MOVIEGUIDE® strongly warns against anyone watching this filth. It makes us wonder whether those who produce and release such movies if they encourage their sons to pursue multiple sex partners and encourage their daughters to be binge-drinking, foul-mouthed nymphomaniacs.

In Brief:

VAN WILDER DEUX: THE RISE OF TAJ is a sequel starring Kal Penn as Taj, Van Wilder's assistant in the first movie. The movie opens with Taj being invited into the lavatory of a jetliner for sexual activity involving hot sauce. It descends from there. Taj arrives in England to attend Camford University and join a the Fox and Hounds fraternity. Upon arrival, he learns he must instead live with a group of sex-crazed dysfunctional misfits.

Some of the female characters are nymphomaniacs, and others lean in that direction. The male characters, including Taj’s father, glorify the idea of fornicating with many women. This is the kind of movie that says to college students, “If you’re not fornicating regularly with someone new, you’re less cool than the nerd in our movie who finally got in on the action himself.”
