In this prequel to the 2002 frat-party hit, cocky college freshman Van Wilder (Jonathan Bennett) arrives on the campus of Coolidge College to discover that, far from the nonstop party he expected, the school is run with military-style precision by Dean Reardon (Kurt Fuller). Teaming up with his pot-smoking roommate, Farley (Nestor Aaron Absera), and misfit Asian transfer student Yu Dum Fok (Jerry Shea), Van challenges the system while wooing the straitlaced Kaitlin (Kristin Cavallari).
