It seems odd that Lionsgate is announcing a May 1st home video release for National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (Blu-ray with Digital, and DVD), considering that it has been available for more than a decade. Nevertheless, it’s obvious the label is looking to make some dough at the expense of Ryan Reynolds with Deadpool 2 set to open in theaters May 18, 2018.
You’ll never think of bulldogs, pastries, protein shakes, or tutors in the same way again… National Lampoon’s Van Wilder stars Ryan Reynolds as a 7th-year student who has no plans to graduate. Life is good for Van; he’s got a coed in every closet and a party to go to every night. His slick reputation even catches the eye of sexy Gwen Pearson (Tara Reid), an on-campus reporter determined to expose the naked truth behind his wild exterior. When Gwen enters his life and his father stops paying for his tuition, could Van’s days as the king of Coolidge College be over? Find out for yourself in this outrageous laugh-fest that you’re sure to go ”nuts“ over!
