How can someone not love Ryan Reynolds?  He is just awesomity awesome awesome.  I love im best when he’s slightly snarky and sarcastic.  It’s his best trait.  So back to the movie.  It’s the usual crazy slightly ridiculous National Lampoon movie, but Ryan Reynolds makes it.  I can deal with the ridiculousness if I can watch him be him.

Best Bits: 

Van Wilder: Are you stalking me? Because that would be super. .
Van Wilder: Richard, you rascal, you never told me you were a DIK!
[under his breath]
Van Wilder: Not that you had to.
Van Wilder: Wow, If he’s here, who’s running hell?
Van Wilder: Well just take a look at this… ya… doodles… I attended class today just about stayed the whole time too!
Gwen: I’m glad you went to all your classes today.
Van Wilder: And a few that weren’t mine, I stepped in the wrong room, liked what I heard… stayed.
Van Wilder: We’ll be accepting donations in the form of cash, visa, and full frontal nudity.
Van Wilder: Those circus midgets can NOT hold their booze!
Van Wilder: I’m all out of love. I’m so lost without you. I know you were right. Believing for so long.
Sally: Dope song. What’s it called?
Van Wilder: Gwen Used Me For Her Story, Then Married an Ass Wipe… and Ran Over My Heart With a Big Metaphorical Truck. Originally performed by Air Supply.
