bochner (ellis in die hard) directs this animal house style flick. it has most of the same cliche elements that you’ve seen in films like animal house, old school, etc. debauchary and jokes surrounding the college aesthetic abound and are driven by the familar plot of a house trying to avoid eviction by the campus chancellor. pcu separates itself a bit because a central element of the comedy is poking fun at the political correctness of the college campus. the funniest scenes are those that show the various campus groups picketing against their pet cause of the week. whether it’s the “womynists” or the animal cruelty folks or the hippies, the theme is one of satrizing the extremists. the rest of the film is a bit flimsy and not nearly as funny, but the spot on mockery of extremists makes it worth while and quotable.
