V is for... Van Wilder

V is for... Van Wilder
Film: Van Wilder: Party Liaison (2002)
Actor: Ryan Reynolds

The Character
Van Wilder is a guy that likes to party hard. When he's not partying, he's off aiding other people in holding their own bashes and, as a result, he earned himself the title of Party Liaison Officer.

Life isn't all rosy for Van Wilder as his job often impedes his University work and it looks like he is about to throw any future of a career away. If only there were something he was good at...

The Actor
Ryan Reynolds has had an interesting career. Off the top of my head I can think of films where he has been a comic book character (Green Lantern), a fake husband (The Proposal) and buried alive (err, Buried). All in the life of a Hollywood superstar, then.

Despite his popularity and fame, Ryan Reynolds hasn't actually appeared in that many films. Aside from the odd rom-com, which Reynolds is most famous for, he has also made appearances in crime (Smokin' Aces) and horror (The Amityville Horror). In fact, he genre-skips so much it is difficult to predict which film he will star in next.

Classic Scene (*Strong Language)


  1. Same guy who starred a detention monitor in Breakfast Club! (on the front of the video)

    Ryan was great in Van Wilder, I loved and laughed at this film. Wasn't Tara Reed in it...when she still was smokin' hot??

  2. Fan of Ryan Reynolds. He makes interesting choices.
