DVD of the Day #329 - PCU

PCU was the 1990’s version of Animal House. Also the crazy Clinton-era level of PC had ebbed since then, it’s still a hilarious (and oft-quoted movie) film and it’s Jeremy Piven’s at his best. Even better than the film though is Piven’s commentary where he spends most of it in a drunken tirade against the director. Shades of Mr. S and the Conan: The Barbarian faux pas.

PCU tells the story of “The Pit” which are the wacky kids on campus at Port Chester University. They’re the kids there to have funny and do the usual college wacky antics while everyone else is grim and trying to save their world in their own little way, be it Womynsts, vegans, black separatists or Republicans. Eventually the Republicans team with the extremely liberal dean of student to get the pit shut down, and it’s up to Droz, Gutter, and the rest to save their house and keep from getting expelled.

The movie’s plot isn’t that great, but the dialogue and stupidity is. I can quote lines like “You’re wearing the t-shirt of the band you’re going to go see? Don’t be that guy Gutter. Don’t be that guy.” and if you’ve seen the movie, it’s hilarious. Otherwise it’s just kind of there hanging. Same with “We’re not gonna protest.”

As much as I love this film, it’s only for a niche audience. For example, I showed it to Elisa back in 2002 and she didn’t laugh once. She didn’t get it. Of course, she’s British and College here is so totally different from University there. Of course she didn’t get it. She couldn’t. If I show this to another college hellraiser like myself, and they’ll love it because it’s so much like shit they or I did in college. Ah the dogfucker incident…early hacking at it’s finest.

Overall, this is a film to see if only because it’s PCU. You probably have though, as Comedy Central ran it into the ground for a few years by playing it constantly. It’s not great, but it’s fun, especially when you’re tired or sick. That’s what counts.

Is It Worth Keeping? Yes
Rating: 7/10
