4.0 out of 5 stars UNSPEAKABLY VULGAR--I LOVED IT! January 28, 2003
Format:DVD
Some fifteen years ago, my then-teenage nephew coaxed my sister into renting this for him and after dinner we plunked it into the VCR. Ten minutes later my mother declared it "UNSPEAKABLY VULGAR" and stomped out of the room while uttering dire warnings about the fate of those who exposed themselves to such purile material. Well, Mother was right: it is purile, maybe even to the point of being unspeakably vulgar! But it's also a lot of fun. The plot is lightweight: a group of sex-crazed Florida highschool boys desperate to lose their virginity try to do precisely that by visiting Porky's, a swamp-water red-neck brothel and general den of inquity. When they get robbed and beaten up by Porky and his minions, they plot an elaborate revenge that is... well... sure to bring down the house!
The plot is really just the string that holds together a series of elaborate practical jokes--the sort of jokes you always heard about when you were a kid and wondered if any one ever really could pull them off. The largely no-name cast, especially Dan Monahan (Pee Wee, so named for his, er, shortcomings), Kaki Hunter (Wendy, the highschool floozie), and Nancy Parsons (Beulah Balbricker, the Godzilla of girls' gymn teachers), play it with an engagingly light touch--and somehow manage to give it an aura of innocence that adds to the movie's charm.
The film drags a bit due to the script's well-intentioned but ho-hum subplot concerning the racism a Jewish boy encounters at Angel Beach High School, but that aside the comic episodes are a laugh riot--and it's impossible to describe them without giving the fun away. There's Cherry Forever, the discovery of why Miss Honeywell is called "Lassie," the truly hilarious and infamous girls' shower scene and its aftermath in the principal's office...

5.0 out of 5 stars great funny movie March 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Porky's is a film that has so many funny moments in it that you don't really have time to catch your breath before the next gag is hurled upon you. This is absolutely one of the funniest films I have ever seen. And the reason for that hilarity is because of it's frankness and propensity to take risks. They don't make movies like this anymore. Everyone is so worried about the damn sensors and that is too bad because a movie like this, while I can acknowledge may not be for everyone's taste, is one that explores teens in high school and it also explores how innocently cruel we were to each other in high school.

What makes this film so funny is that the characters look like they are having fun. They like to mess with each other. They enjoy embarrassing one another and they are sex starved high school kids. And really, weren't a lot of us males like that in high school? Are a lot of us still not like that?

You have an assorted cast of characters from Meat, the rather large ( in many ways ) guardian of the group. Women love him for various reasons and it is his size and manliness that makes him so much fun to poke fun at. Then there is Tommy Turner. He is the leader of the group and always seems to come up with the ideas to get his friends laid or in trouble. You have Billy and Brian and of course PeeWee. He is the guy that everyone likes, yet his exaggerated Casanova stories get him in several sticky but funny situations with his friends. The characters at Angel Beach high school are hilarious and I honestly wish I could have known guys like this.

The true strength of this film is the hilarity. The kids make it funny because they always look like they are having fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best September 6, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Porky's is one very funny movie! Especially the scene in which Miss Balbricker explains to the principal & the coaches about having a line-up of five boys exposing their private parts! Look for Kim Cattrall as Miss Honeywell, Alex Karras as a crooked sheriff & his wife Susan Clark as a backwoods hooker. Pee-Wee & the gang get their revenge on Porky after he rips them off & throws them out of his nightclub. Director Bob Clark does a real good job in keeping things moving along & does an excellent job in dealing with anti-semitism involving new student Brian Schwartz (Scott Colomby). This movie is a genuine classic. Simply the best!

PORKY'S was the first frat comedy that elevated "frat comedy/coming of age" into a comic sub-genre on its own. Endlessly imitated... very rarely matched... never surpassed.

This film tells the story of a group of nerdy oddballs high schoolers (in 1954) who are determined to loose their virginity... at any cost! Porky's is the name of the "bordelo" they choose as the place to "do it"...
-laughs.

But instead, they get humiliated by the owner who (as we'll find out) cheated the wrong kids. What comes next, is one of the most hilarious revenges in film History. Period!

Sexy, hilarious, politically incorrect, scatologic, at times disgusting... but always hilarious!! This film is a riot!!!

My favorite scene is when one of the guys puts his **** through a hole on the wall to the girls' showers... and later the boys must stay in a lineup so a shocked old teacher can identify the **** who scared her.
UNTHINKABLE!!!!

This film is a classic!!
Open your mind and laugh till you drop.
