PCU is a 1994 comedy movie that takes a satirical look at political correctness in American universities. The movie explores the conflicts between different groups and ideals in a fictional university called Port Chester University (PCU). The story begins when a high school student named Tom Lawrence (Chris Young) visits PCU to see if he would like to attend the university. However, things quickly spiral out of control and Tom ends up becoming embroiled in the different social groups on campus.

The first group Tom encounters is 'The Pit,' a group of slackers who have been in college for a long time and have no aspirations to ever leave. They are led by Droz (Jeremy Piven), who shows Tom around campus and introduces him to different characters.

Next, Tom meets Gutter (Jon Favreau), a radical vegan who is part of the 'Causeheads,' a group of protesters who are fighting to save their beloved "Pit." Later, he comes across Rand McPherson (David Spade) who is the leader of the 'Preppy Frat Guys' and is the main antagonist of the movie.

Tom also interacts with some members of the 'Womynists,' a group of radical feminists, and the 'Balls and Shaft' party, whose members are outlandish and eccentric.

The movie follows Tom's adventures as he navigates the different social groups and ideologies on campus, trying to figure out where he belongs. Tom eventually realizes that the university is completely divided, with each group only caring about their own agenda and not the overall well-being of the school.

Throughout the movie, the characters debate and argue about various issues, including cultural appropriation, sexism, and animal rights. The movie pokes fun at the absurdity of political correctness and how extreme views can sometimes do more harm than good.

One of the most memorable scenes in the movie is the party scene where the 'Balls and Shaft' fraternity throws a massive bash, inviting all the other groups on campus. The party quickly spirals out of control, with different groups throwing insults and physical confrontations.

PCU is a fun and lighthearted comedy that highlights the ridiculousness of over-the-top political correctness. The movie is full of quirky characters and hilarious one-liners that are sure to have viewers laughing out loud.

Overall, PCU is a classic satire that continues to resonate today, as the issue of political correctness is still a hotly debated topic in universities across America. The movie is a must-watch for anyone looking for a good laugh and a thought-provoking film.
