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.Written by

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 »
Funny college comedy in the "Animal House" vein, with Piven out to save his dorm from being turned over to the young Republican legion led by David Spade. The film's gimmick has the school's last party dorm constantly under attack by women's libbers, radical black nationalists and vegetarians (who get raw meat dumped on them in the film's opening scenes, sure to weed out anybody who really shouldn't see this movie anyway). Above average laughs and sincerity for this kind of fare.
I liked seeing George Clinton in the film, too; I'm a big fan so I'm sort of biased, but I thought he and the guys and gals of P-Funk brought a lot to the film. In fact, several young people (I'm 27 myself, all you old Maggotheads) have told me they first heard of Parliament Funkadelic from this movie. That's great, but I sure wish they'd picked something better than that insipid "jump jump" song they used.
