Also, even though most of the stuff with Van was fun, every time the stiff (but still quite hot) Tara Reid hit the screen, it was like we were suddenly switched over to another movie, with a serious, roving, mucho-tanned reporter going for her story. Lighten up, girlie-girl...it's a college frathouse flick, after all. I also didn't think that there was much chemistry between the two, although Wilder's assistant in the film, played delectably by Kal Penn, did ignite some vibes with the hipster. Not sure what that means, but I wanted to see more of Taj and less of Tara. Having said that, the multitude of slinky outfits which Reid donned in the film were appreciated, and the gratuitous T&A shots throughout were also quite "uplifting" (not by Reid, but other lovely ladies). As for the plot, there really isn't much to talk about until the very end, when they actually try and get a little "serious" and drive a message home, but by that point, I just wanted things to wrap up (there were also way too many "happy endings" for reality's sake). I will admit that the guy shitting his ass out did still manage to crack me up though despite having seen it done in a million other movies before and the scene involving the dog semen (you'll know what I'm talking about when/if you see it) was really, really...and I mean, really disgusting! The film on the whole though wasn't entirely ambitious, but if you're looking for yet another mindless college flick with a number of laughs and a captivating lead, you can certainly do much worse than this movie. I will however admit to getting pretty damn tired of these same types of movies and I hope that this will be it for some time.
