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.

This is college
1 July 2003 | by ZoopansickSee all my reviews

I'm sorry, maybe it's because I attend ultra-liberal UC Santa Cruz, but let me tell you I love this movie. I see people like this on a daily basis, and this movie hits it right on the head. I think Animal house is better overall, but I gave it a worse score because PCU just clicks with me. I can relate to it really well, and this is almost 10 years after it's release. The line where the school president is asking about the future of the academics programs is hilarious and is close to being true. It goes...

"I think bi-sexual Asian studies should have it's own building. But what goes? The math department or the hockey team, I say hockey."

That's not exact but VERY close and very funny. If you are going to college these days you MUST see this movie, I think you will laugh even more then you do at Animal House! Spade is brilliant as ever too.
