I just wanted to know if the movie PCU is on DVD, or if there is any plans for a release?.

None, as far as I know. It's a shame. I like it better than Animal House *ducks to avoid rotten produce being thrown*
Man, an hour wasted on this sig! Thanks, Toshiba! :P

It's a great, funny movie. Not as good as Animal House, but it would be a purchase for sure, if only for Jeremy Piven. Funny guy.

PCU is one of the few movies I really want to own that's still not out on DVD(the others being the obvious Star Wars and Indiana Jones). With any luck it'll come soon.

I think one appreciates this movie if you've lived in Connecticut ever, especially if you've attended UConn in Storrs as I do. The line where George Clinton asks the Favreau character about getting to Hartford is key. UConn is like 15 minutes from the highway and another 25 or 30 to Hartford from there, just as Port Chester University was. Also, the whole 8pm liqour store closing has given me a few close calls in my time Posted Image

Dave

I really wish that the current owners would put PCU onto DVD. I used to watch this movie all the time on Comedy Central several years ago. IMO, funny movie starring Jeremy Piven & David Spade.

But I will only purchase PCU on DVD if it is released on DVD in OAR.

How can PCU not be on DVD?! This is more than just a movie. This is about America. It's about democracy, the Bill of Rights, basic cable, call waiting, and free trips to the salad bar! It's about everything that makes our country great!


Seriously though, I did ask about this DVD in the Fox chat a few months ago and it's not on their slate at the moment. I guess I'll be sticking with my LD for now.

Ah, good ol' PCU. Fox sure has dropped the ball on this one. I've asked and asked about its release date in the Studio section here and received no replies. I can only guess that some people here have run off Mr. Staddon.

There was a Fox chat where PCU was said to be scheduled for release in the summer of 2001; now, almost 2 years later there's still no word of it coming out. If someone could come up with definite details of why it hasn't come out, that'd really be appreciated.

I totally agree, this movie needs to come out on DVD. VHS can not do justice to that cool frisbee that's all like crazy spinning around, like, I mean, uh, I'm getting dizzy.... Posted Image

Speaking of Jeremy Piven... I also hope that the short-lived "Cupid" series gets released on DVD. I'm sure it's a long way off (if at all), but I'd really like to see those episodes again!

I'd buy "Cupid" in a heartbeat. And while we're on the subject of short-lived-but-endearing shows, how about Early Edition or Mysterious Ways?

Dave, Port Chester was modelled after Wesleyan, not UConn. The writers graduated from there in 1990. I grew up in Meriden and remember when the movie came out my local paper had an interview with one of them (I forget which one). They wrote the movie based on how PC Wesleyan had become.

I can definitely appreciate the packie's closing at 8 though.

Greg,
I knew it wasn't based on UConn but I just found it interesting that many of the parts of the movie applied to UConn as well. I especially got that feeling one day as I had to literally shove my way through a anti-war protest that was blocking the main entrance to the library.
Regards,
Dave

I just want to know why they placed Port Chester in Connecticut, when P.C. is in New York. Right over the border but in New York
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!
