41. ‘National Lampoon’s Van Wilder’ (2002)
If you’ve got to have one proudly brainless college comedy, let it be this one, with the crass, coarse, but ever-amiable titular hero (a smooth Ryan Reynolds, pictured) in his seventh year of hedonistic fun at Coolidge College. The other students dig Wilder and his Falstaffian excesses, the pompous administration connives to force him out on his lazy butt. A lame story? This movie was so popular that it prompted two even stupider Van Wilder sequels.
