Summary:

In the manner of Animal House, PCU is a satire which exaggerates and pokes fun at the views of the politically correct on a university campus. The film is nothing more than a new slant on a tired plot, the under-achievers and losers of a college campus throw a beer party. There is no virtue in PCU.

Review:

In the manner of Animal House, PCU is a satire which exaggerates and pokes fun at the views of the politically correct on a university campus. At Port Charles University, everyone must say the right things, eat the right foods and wear the right clothes, otherwise there is instant protest. That is until the Pit brings everyone together for a campus-wide party. The coed gang in the Pit are the pranksters and underachievers of the campus. The members refuse to be conformed to the school's standards. There are factions on campus that want to shut down the Pit for good. Joining the plot is the president of the university, who delivers to the Pit a damage bill for over $7,000. So, what else can the Pit do but throw a campus-wide party to raise the money?

PCU is nothing more than a new slant on a tired plot: the under-achievers and losers of a college campus throw a beer party. There is no virtue in PCU. The only positive element in the film is that people can put aside their differences. Regrettably, this happens at a party where the theme is, "Tonight at the Pit everyone gets laid." The hero of the movie is Droz, who promotes and participates in drinking, stealing, laziness, disrespect of authority, abusing other people because of their beliefs, co-ed living, and much more. The movie is also filled with obscenities, phallic puns and alcohol and drug abuse.
