National Lampoon's Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj


Source: Catholic News Service

Sophomoric sequel to 2002's "Van Wilder" with American college student Taj Mahal Badalandabad (played again by Kal Penn) continuing his academic and partying pursuits at a prestigious English university where he inspires a group of campus outcasts (Glenn Barry, Anthony Cozens, Steve Rathman and Holly Davidson) to take on some snooty bluebloods in a fraternal competition. Director Mort Nathan offers a witless syllabus of raunchy frat-house humor that depicts college life as little more than an opportunity for sex and booze. Pervasive vulgar sexual humor, crass sight gags, partial frontal nudity, much crude language and an instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.

American Catholic Blog To avoid running aground on the rocks, our spiritual life cannot be
reduced to a few religious moments. In the succession of days and 
seasons, in the unfolding of times and events, we learn to see ourselves by looking to the One who does not pass away: spirituality is a return to the essential, to that good that no one can take from us, the one truly necessary thing.
