It probably sounded like a cash cow during the pitch meeting—an Animal House for the politically hypersensitive ’90s.

But Piven’s high-IQ-Bluto shtick wears thin after the first half hour, and all that’s left is the rank aftertaste of flat keg beer. Instead of satire, ”PCU” peddles a hackneyed palette of feminists, vegetarians, and eco-whiners. C+
