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.

well it made me laugh...!
16 May 2002 | by Sarah-60See all my reviews

I only watched this cos I'm such a fan of Piven, and I had my doubts about it, but I really enjoyed it. Its no masterpiece, but there are some laugh-out-loud funny bits. JP is wonderful as ever, and all the caricature stereotypes are spot on. But geez - I did not recognise Favreau - I had to rewind to check it really was him! As my friend from Boston said, this may be dismissed as only appealing to frat-boys, but I'm a 30 year old, vegetarian, English woman - and it made me laugh (hey you know what - good for them chucking a load of meat out the window - now no-one can eat it!)

Oh, and please, who posted this comment "I'm afraid that only those of us who attended Wesleyan University at the very start of the 90's are going to get it" Get over yourselves. Any Red Dwarf fans out there better just stop laughing, cos unless you went to Liverpool Uni like the writers, and me & my friends, I bet you don't get every single joke, cos I've been to the Aigburth Arms, and I know first hand how funny the curtains there are. Alright?

Watch the movie, it will probably make you laugh. It might not. Regardless of where you went to school.
