In this sequel, Taj Badalandabad (Kal Penn), who was the personal assistant of Van Wilder in the first film, aims to become the next King of Cool after graduating from Coolidge College. So, he makes his way to England to take his place as a legacy in the most sought after fraternity house on the Camford University campus, but he is turned away due to a typographical error. Also with Shobu Kapoor, Dan Percival, Holly Davidson and Anthony Cozens. Directed by Mort Nathan. [1:35]

SEX/NUDITY 8 - A man and a woman go into an airplane bathroom, the woman pulls her blouse open (she is wearing a lace bra), hikes up her skirt (she is wearing stockings and her bare thighs and part of her buttocks are visible), and the man watches and pours hot sauce on his neck and chest; the woman then licks it off, he pours more into his boxers, she makes her way below his waist (off-screen, presumably to perform oral sex on him) and the man begins to scream from the heat of the hot sauce.
 A woman lifts her top to show her bare breasts (the camera does a close up on her bare breasts) to a team of men and they gawk. A woman takes off her clothes and tells a man to do the same (we see her bare breasts and abdomen). A woman's low-cut tank top becomes soaked with beer and clings to her breasts (a man next to her ogles her cleavage and breasts). A woman wearing a slinky negligee invites a man to join her in bed (it is implied that they spent the night together and that they had sex) and the man (wearing only boxer shorts) declines the offer. Women wearing skimpy outfits dance suggestively at a party (some dance around poles). Women wear low-cut tops that reveal cleavage in many scenes, a woman wears a tank top and tiny boxer shorts to sleep in, and women wear evening gowns that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and backs. A man shows up at a black tie affair wearing only a black tie (we see his bare back and buttocks and legs).
 A man lies in bed wearing boxer shorts (he is obviously aroused) waiting for a woman who comes into the room wearing a top and lace panties; she removes her top (we see her bare back), he removes his underwear (nothing is shown) and they are interrupted (we see a glimpse of her bare breast, briefly). A woman pushes a man back on a bed, climbs on top of him, opens her top (we see her bra), they kiss and it is implied that they have sex.
 Two dogs apparently have sex (we see one approaching the other, which turns around), we hear yipping and see the spray of semen (people in an audience are splattered). A woman (a judge in a dog competition) caresses the testicles of a dog contestant.
 A woman faints when she sees the size of a man's endowment and when she wakes up he accidentally knocks her out with it, when he is startled by two men entering the room (we just hear a thud). A man says that he has a problem with the size of his endowment and he reveals himself (we do not see anything other than his boxers around his bare knees) to three other men who appear alarmed.
 A man and a woman fight using swords, the man cuts the laces on the front of the woman's top, and the woman cuts the buttons off the man's shirt and then his pants fall to the floor (he is bare-chested and wearing boxer shorts). A much older woman asks a younger man to dance, she holds him and describes what she feels, and she grabs his crotch and squeezes.
 We hear women moaning rhythmically in several scenes and the sound comes from a pinball machine. A woman licks a man's finger in a seductive manner. A doghouse shakes rhythmically and we hear yipping coming from inside suggesting that the dogs are having sex.
 A man and a woman kiss, and men and women hug and kiss. Men and women dance together at a party. A woman kisses a man on the cheek.
 A woman talks to two other women in crude and graphic terms about women needing sex. A woman describes in detail wanting to find someone in order to perform oral sex on him. A woman tells several people a story about a man who used his teeth to circumcise. A man tells a woman that he would sleep with her for his tuition money. People make comments about the size of a dog's testicles (it is suggested that they are so large because he is a purebred). A man makes several references to a man having an erection. There is an allusion to a man having erectile dysfunction. A man talks about the "nerd per willing chicks ratio."

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Two men sword fight, one says they should fight to first blood, one falls to the floor after an urn of ashes is thrown and he tries to catch it, and a letter is slashed on his buttock (we see the pant fabric tinged red).
 A man head butts another man and knocks him unconscious, and a man head butts another man and we hear a loud thud.
 People shoot each other while playing paintball wars, and one man is shot three times in the crotch.
 A man and a woman fight using swords, the man pulls out the laces on the front of the woman's top, and the woman cuts the buttons off the man's shirt and then his pants fall to the floor.
 A man and a woman tumble down a hill bumping into each other on the way and they hold paintball guns on each other when they reach the bottom.
 A woman faints when she sees the size of a man's endowment and when she wakes up he accidentally knocks her out with it when he is startled by two men entering the room (we just hear a thud).
 There's a crude description about how a woman performs circumcisions, and there are a couple of other references to circumcision.
 A man sits in a chair where a dog has defecated (we hear a squish). A woman burps loudly.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
