Predicted the Future

I loved this movie growing up! I was in my teens and couldn't wait to get to college!

I thought the group's were funny but now 20+ years later and it's scary how accurate this movie is to the way the US is now! So many different groups of people complaining or protesting about something

A very funny college comedy.

As far as homages to / imitations of "Animal House" go, this has to rank as a pretty good one. It's got good characters, some amusing dialogue, decent satire of special interest groups, and a cool soundtrack. Its pacing is acceptable, its running time brief (81 minutes in total),and its spirit irresistible.

Marking a rare directorial effort by actor Hart Bochner (who's best known as weaselly executive Ellis in the action classic "Die Hard"),"PCU" features Chris Young as Tom Lawrence, a clean cut, wide eyed "normal" sort of guy who is checking out Port Chester University to see if he'd like to go there in the fall. He gets caught up in the fervor of various "politically correct" activists, as well as the activities of the wacky guys and gals of The Pit, a student group known for their nonconformity.

As you may guess from that running time, there's really not that much story here, but there are enough laughs to keep the movie watchable. Jeremy Piven contributes a charismatic star turn as "Droz", leader of The Pit. Megan Ward and Sarah Trigger supply appealing love interests for Young and Piven. Jessica Walter does fine as an easier-on-the-eyes version of Dean Vernon Wormer. David Spade is extremely well cast as the snooty and smarmy preppie McPherson. There are also engaging performances by actor / director Jon Favreau and Alex Desert. George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic further spice things up with their appearance. The climactic party shows how sometimes people just need to lighten up and enjoy life a little more.

With its well defined protagonists and antagonists, the end is appropriately satisfying, and overall "PCU" provides solid entertainment to those just looking to have a good time.

Seven out of 10.

Long time ago

At one point in human history, Jon Favreau was not making Marvel and Star Wars movie, but was instead playing a character in a teen sex comedy. Also, at this very same moment, Jeremy Piven would be seen as a heroic character and not the creepy scumbag that we always feared that he could be.

That said, if anything, this is a movie that will teach you not to wear the shirt of a band to that band's concert.

PCU (Port Chester University) is a college where fraternities have been outlawed and political correctness runs rampant. This movie is probably prescient in that way, as forward-looking as a movie mostly concerned with drugs and sex can be.

Much like The Warriors, the school has moved from frats to gangs of like-minded students such as the heroic gang of The Pit, the antagonists known as Balls and Shaft, the Womynist House, the Afrocenterists, the Cause-Heads and Jerrytown.

Hart Bochner - Doc from Terror Train - directed this movie. He also made HIgh School High, which is a lot more of a parody than this. Supposedly he didn't allow much ad-libbing, which Piven brings up in interviews, but then Bochner claims he did.

At least it has a good soundtrack. BeyondParliament-Funkadelic appearing in the actual film, Mudhoney covers Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" and you get some Redd Kross.
