Movie Info

Actor Hart Bochner turns director in the satirical Animal House update P.C.U.. Per the title, the film takes place on the campus of a University where, thanks to militant dean Jessica Walter, Political Correctness has reached ridiculous proportions. A group of dorm-room cutups, wallowing in their un correctness, declares war on the uptight student activists who call the shots. Saturday Night Live's David Spade is among the leading players; while he's funnier here than in his costarring stints in Chris Farley's films, he doesn't have much to work with. The subject matter covered in P.C.U. has already been tackled, with far funnier results, on Bill Maher's cable-TV weekly Politically Incorrect.

Critic Reviews for PCU

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

PCU is a fertile movie, filled with the beginnings of good ideas and promising scenes. But somehow everything seems truncated; there's not the kind of follow-through that takes a funny situation and builds on it until the laughs begin to pyramid.

Take Piven out of the equation and it'd be a whole lot uglier.

Amusing little cult comedy

Yet another horny frat boy romp edited and confined in repeated airings on Comedy Central

Audience Reviews for PCU

This movie is often described as the Animal House of the 90s. I suppose that's true, it is very 90s, but unlike animal house it isn't very funny. This is going to be an extremely dated movie in the future, and just get less funny as time goes by. If you'd like to remember the 90s, rent this movie, if not, don't see it.

The same silliness as Animal House and many other versions of the story. But pleasant enough.
