More Than Birds
Lately, I unearthed a Van Wilder VCD from my files and it drove me to mixed neurosis and excitement! The CD isn’t mine by the way– it’s from a close high school friend who bought it in a store in a mall in Subic in a freshman high school field trip (count the “in’s” please). He lent it to my entire barkada with me bein’ the last to watch it at home. No, it wasn’t porn (though at first, I had the intuition that it was, because it was fairly watched by one guy to another as if some kind of cocaine for a cloister of gangsters, lol!).

Walt Becker’s Van Wilder: The Party Liaison (2002) stars Ryan Reynolds (V.W.) as a filthy-rich yahoo who has been spending his college years in a school for more than what was expected. On an average day, the academe thwarted him as a klutz and he has been lovin’ it. In fact, he didn’t want to graduate yet: He loved school (as in the love we don’t usually get here in school if it weren’t for our chummy friends). Until the sizzling hot student journalist) Tara Reid (Gwen-yes-hyperventilate) came in and “studies” him.
Van WIlder: : The first day of spring semester. A time to say goodbye to the parents once again, and say hello to a few new student bodies.
: Don’t be a fool, stay in school!

Got it already? Anyway you see, Van reminds Gwen NOT to take life too seriously. Gwen meanwhile compels Van to think of his future sometimes. Good discourse. But really… who rebuts who? The movie catches on a conclusion that Van despite his incessant flaws in school still manages to make it out alive the hard way. And maybe, that’s it: It’s either we get though life the easy way or otherwise, right? But you all know that VW cannot be a role model. Lol.
So again, as my Paulinian senses begin tingling, this comedy reminded me the parables of the the Prodigal Son and the Hypocrite and the Sinner. Cheeze, I’m already sounding like a daft priest. Okay, STOP.
PS: I'm watchin' Heroes all over again via this 80-pesos worth of pirated DVD. Yey.
