Storyline

A high school senior comes to visit Port Chester (aka Politically Correct U) for the weekend, and the admissions department mistakenly sets him up to stay with Droz, a seven year student and party-animal who lives in The Pit, the most offensive house on campus. After trying to pawn the pre-freshman off on his house mate, Droz sets off on his normal daily activities including disrupting a political protest by throwing meat at a group of vegan protesters. The President of the University then receives a number of complaints, and with the help of her lackey, she may finally have the power to kick Droz's house off campus. But the Pit throws an all-campus rager where George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic performs, and everything might turn out alright if the various political groups can forget their protests for one night and just have fun together.

Trivia

P-Funk was not the first choice for the band at the party. Originally Nirvana was scripted to play, but they were too expensive. The Goo Goo Dolls were considered, but Hart Bochner thought that they wouldn't be recognized in America because they weren't well-known at the time. Bochner finally decided on P-Funk. See more »

Goofs

A full beer keg is much too heavy for a single person to lift over their head. While it's possible that these aren't full kegs, but merely kegs that haven't been finished (beer can be heard sloshing around in them, which can not be heard in a full keg), due to the movement of the liquid inside a half-full keg is nearly as awkward as a full keg. Either way, the kegs could not be lifted overhead. See more »

90's Crazy Campus Life depicted so well...... (Jeremy Piven who?)
5 February 2004 | by (Herts, UK) – See all my reviews

Hit Me!!!

Jeremy Piven really is impressive in this role, which frankly gained my attention. This really makes the film..... HE IS THE FILM, well almost.

Is It For U?

Hate over glossy hollywood productions? prefer smaller budgets and original acting?

So....

This is PCU, a college film unlike Road Trip or American Pie 1,2,3,126,5002, whatever... Some gloss, great acting(my god it really does make the film!), good setting, good script, no great script!!!

However...

Two points though... the plot is not the most complicated ever.... the characters are sometimes stereotypical and predictable... but thats college movies... how else can it be done..

Trust me.... this made my year! BB
