In the small, idyllic enclave of Port Chester University, there is an even smaller community of people determined to hold out against the fervent political correctness that has taken over their academic establishment. Known as the Pit, it is the fraternity house that serves as party HQ for those holdouts, who hail, incidentally, from all walks of life; it is also the building to which Tom (Chris Young) has been assigned to stay during his pre-freshman stay at the campus. Jeremy Piven plays Droz, his guide, the head of the frat whose daily activities include throwing meat at a bunch of protesting vegans. But things turn serious (kind of) when the school president hands the frat a bill for $7000 in damages, and the group decides to do the only thing it can: throw a party! Campus peace hangs in the balance as this one night will decide if everyone can put aside their differences and just have a good time. George Clinton and the P-Funk put in an appearance as performers at the party, and David Spade almost steals the show as the uptight, smarmy leader of the rival frat.
In the academic bastion of political correctness, one dorm insists on their right to eat hunks of red meat, smoke incessantly and engage in the wanton exchange of bodily fluids. The leader of this lonely outpost, Droz, harks back to the good old college days when a young man could drink to excess without worrying about recycling all the beer bottles. Droz and his cronies become the target of man-hating feminists, preppy republicans and other rabid special interest groups. But these collegiate throwbacks have a few tricks up their sleeve, and they save their dorm from the PC police and the noisy university administration.
