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.

Quotes

President Garcia-Thompson: You passed out cigarettes for a smoke-a-thon on Earth Day. You installed speed bumps on the handicapped ramps and, most recently, you dumped 100 pounds of... MEAT on a peaceful vegan protest!
Droz: Oh, come on! That was way more than 100 pounds.

Worth it for the 90s feel
29 April 2012 | by SandcoolerSee all my reviews

"PCU" is the typical story of a movie that got slaughtered at the box office, but somehow still found an audience afterwards. It's not difficult to see why it didn't take of right away: it's really sort of a thinking man's college comedy. It utterly refuses to go down the usual gross-out route (it's a great route, but still), but instead tries to be a biting satire. Some of the stuff is pretty good (protesting against protests!), other stuff falls flat but you still appreciate the effort. The actors are sort of a mixed bag, but Jeremy Piven owns the movie with a charismatic performance as the token rebel. I'm assuming Megan Ward was also great, I was distracted by her intense 90s hotness. There aren't that many gags overall, but the brutal style of the thing definitely makes it stand out. "PCU" may not be the hidden gem of 90s comedies some have tried to make of it, but I'm happy it's still around.
