Steve (Matthew Broderick), a suburban dad and Christmas enthusiast, leads a well-ordered, well-planned, and well-organized life. His new neighbor, Buddy (Danny DeVito), is Steve's polar opposite: a big personality with big dreams, which have yet to materialize.

Van Wilder 2
The Rise of Taj
Genres: Comedy
Director: Mort Nathan
Distributors: MGM Distribution
Starring: Kal Penn, Shobu Kapoor, Dan Percival, Holly Davidson, Anthony Cozens

Taj Badalandabad, the personal assistant to the legendary Van Wilder, has just graduated Coolidge College and is now on his way to England's Camford University. Taj is on a quest to follow in the footsteps of his father's legend as a ladies' man at Camford, beginning with membership to an exclusive campus Fraternal Guild, the Fox and Hounds. But when Taj arrives at the venerated campus, he quickly discovers he has not been accepted to the Fraternal Guild, and that the stuffy head of the Fox and Hounds -- Pip Everett, the Earl of Grey -- is, in fact, a big jerk. Taj seeks out the only housing available on campus and finds himself suddenly "Head of House" for a group of student misfits. As Taj faces different tests in the fairer sex, he realises that sometimes you have got to let you're heart lead you, even if you know it's taking you places you're not supposed to go.
