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

Jeremy Piven contracted malaria during filming. He lost 8 pounds overnight. He passed out during filming of the scene at the bicentennial celebration. His weight loss is apparent between the beginning of the movie and the party scene in "the Pit". 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 »

Quotes

Womynist #1: Fine, Sam. Why don't we forget about fighting the phallucracy for a while and go have a good time.
Samantha: Exactly.

Classic movie that captures the time
30 January 2019 | by Nate-48See all my reviews

This is a near great movie that perfectly captures a time and place where AIDS was at the forefront of everybody's minds. Grunge had revolutionized society. Feminism was taking it's place on campuses. Political correctness was growing. In many ways this film predicted a lot of what would eventually happen to campuses and society 25 years later. It's scary to think it's been 25 years already. The star of the show is Jeremy piven. David Spade is also good and this is one of Favreaus earliest roles. There are some great witty lines here. Those of a different generation may not get it though I think a lot of today's generation will be able to relate.
