A sequel to the 2002 release NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VAN WILDER, Taj (Kal Penn) Van Wilder's assistant in the first movie strikes out on his own and travels to London.
Enrolling at England's prestigious Camden University to further his studies, Kal Penn shows the uptight student body of the university how to get Wilder!
VAN WILDER 2: THE RISE OF THE TAJ follows the fortunes of Taj Mahal Badalandabad (Kal Penn), a sidekick of the Van's, who sets out to further his studies across the Atlantic. Hoping to join the elite Fox and Hounds fraternal guild, Taj meets the organisation's elitist leader, Pip Everett, The Earl of Grey (Daniel Percival), but soon realises what a mistake he has made when he's made to feel a total misfit. Instead, he finds out he'll have to serve as a teaching and resident assistant at the "barn", a rundown building housing a number of similar outcasts:
Seamas O'Toole (Glen Barry), a stereotypically angry Irishman
Gethin (Anthony Cozens), who like Penelope (Beth Steel), but is unable to single her out from her twin sister Alexander (Amy Steel)
Simon (Steven Rathman), a guy who's concerned about the size of his manhood
Sadie (Holly Davidson), a hot, sex-obsessed nymphomaniac
Together, however, they might just learn a thing or two about themselves as they take on the school's priggish authority figures, as well as the elitist fraternity, and show them how to really party.
