Flick Pick: PCU

(20th Cent. Fox, 1994)

Everything on my list can't be superlative artistic masterpieces. Some of them are just good entertainment. This cute little effort was just that. It's not a perfect movie, and was a box office flop, but it's absolutely loads of fun, and if anything, way too light on the whole PC problem, which did nothing but metastasize society-wide ever since. Locking a faculty dinner inside a room with Starland Vocal Band's Afternoon Delight on endless autoplay alone was wry genius. A little bit more polish and better writing could have made this a worthy successor to movies like Animal House, but as it is it still manages to make lists for the Top Ten College Movies without breaking a sweat, and continues to be at least a personal guilty pleasure movie, if not so much a universal one.

I'd list it as one of the best of the top half dozen funniest movies of all time. But then, I love rank humor. Just discovered your site- rant on, brother.
