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

When the liquor store owner tells Gutter that he can't buy beer after 8:00pm explains the reason as a blue law. A "blue law" prohibits or restricts the sale of alcohol. In some areas it may also restrict things such as the sale of automobiles on Sundays. See more »

Goofs

As the party ends at the Pit, while everyone is leaving there is a shot of Samantha on top of her Aunt's car attempting to fix the windshield and/or wipers. Yet the very next day when her and Droz are walking off to get coffee and Samantha says she has a car, she acts as if she is unaware of the damage that has already been done. See more »

Animal House of the 90's
14 August 2006 | by sonicworxSee all my reviews

The movie features an incredible cast with Jeremy Piven anchoring the lead role, and featuring David Spade in a usual tie-wearing, brown nosing politician egocentric.

The movie from beginning to the end was fun and funny, yet doing their part to point out the vast political correctness and sensitivity society is in these days. The only thing was it felt like a ripoff of Animal House (only a PG13 version). The fraternity on campus that causes problems for the university...the dean trying to run them out of the school...the alcohol...the parties and the dean's personal student monkey.

But for those that could care less about originality...this movie is a must-see.
