"Excellent"

PCU Review


One of the tragically underappreciated films of the 1990s, this updating of the Animal House mentality brings us to a Twilight Zone world where political correctness has run rampant. The P.C. schtick is a little overdone -- which turned me and other critics off on its original release -- but it has since emerged as a cult classic thanks to its wild characters and a virtuoso performance by Jeremy Piven as head of the most notorious frat house on campus. David Spade is the perfect foil as the button-down freak at the rival fraternity.

And yeah, that's Jon Favreau. Check out Piven's commentary track on the DVD, where he complains at length about not being able to improvise and comments on his own college days.

Aka P.C.U.
