Keep an eye out for the funniest movie about growing up ever made!
Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to lose their virginity which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
Every generation has a defining teen-sex comedy, and Porky's was the one for my parents. I've seen it several times now and still find it hilarious, especially the scene with the female PE teacher requesting a penis line-up.
American Pie for the late 90's and in the early 80's we had Porky's . In them days the censorship was pretty bad and I am pretty certain this was hard to watch in those early days.
The comedy is spot on and if you don't laugh at least once, you have no sense of humour.
I love this up to to this day and most of the jokes still work especially the shower scene.
I guarantee if you haven't seen this and need a few chuckles, check it out.
Oh, I am looking for Mike Hunt on here, please let me know if you find him. ;)
Before the crude and raunchy sex comedies of this generation (American Pie) which had axed the humor in return for only appealing to horny teenage boys there was Porky's. And as much as I would assume that Bob Clark's film had the same type of reaction during the time of its initial release as films like the American Pie saga do now; I think Porky's stands out past those as a true comedy that works.
Bob Clark is such a interesting director, one whom I am proud to say I am a fan of. What kind of guy starts his career making underrated horror gems then onto sex and adult comedies and finally crashing (no pun intended) at family friendly…
One of my favorite films of all time. I'm starting to see a trend where the old skool raunchy comedy films are getting low ratings on letterboxd. I would think a film like this would get insane high scores all through the board. I see the fucking same thing with Animal House. They're giving low scores for fucking Animal House too for fuck sakes?And yes, they don't make them like these anymore.
Absolute classic !
I'm logging Revenge of the Nerds and this together. We're used to hearing people say stuff like "They don't make em like they used to" but in both this and Nerd's cases "THANK GOD THEY DON'T MAKE EM LIKE THEY USED TO." Are these movies made directly for sociopaths? How can you relate to any of these assholes? Do the movies ever comment on their asshat-ery?? Noppppe. They're our heroes! Clap for the RAPE!!! Also just hurts even more that they just are not funny. Like at all. Also HOLY SHIT Porky's lighting WHAT THE HELL?!?!?! The billion characters in the movie all are white guys with brown hair. I already can't distinguish between them but COULD YA SHINE SOME GODDAMN FUCKING LIGHT ON THEIR RAPEY LIL FACES ONCE IN A WHILE!! I honestly don't even know who the main character in Porky's was. At least Nerds looks professionally made. I guess. I'll give it that. I guess.
I saw this film before at the 'right' age (14 or 15), but so much must have gone over my head, because watching it today there's so much going on with the friendships developing, and the things in the background - like the one kid who didn't get into his university and what that might mean for him.
I know you're meant to sympathise with the kids, but I really sympathised with Porky by the end - his whole livelihood destroyed! So many jobs lost! All the police cars destroyed - what if there had been a real emergency going on at the same time?
This is a really fun movie -- nothing more, nothing less. Plus, now that i've seen this, I get 1/4 of all the jokes in Scary Movie 1...hahah.
In the early 1980's, sex comedies were all the rage and "Porky's" was pretty much the king of the raunchy, sophomoric heap. But just because it was the biggest hit and the most infamous doesn't make it the best. This is just as dumb and depressing as it was back then, with lame characters, embarrassing situations and completely devoid of laughs.
None of these young actors have much charisma, and that fact, combined with this lowbrow script filled with obvious jokes make it hard to like any of these stock, underwritten characters. You barely remember their names. Then, amid all the raunchy jokes, writer/director Bob Clark tries to make something of a message movie about acceptance and tolerance. Because of…
If I could give this movie 7 stars I would do it in a second
Director Bob Clark (Tribute) takes the warm, buddy-buddy formula of Ivan Reitman's teenage comedies (Meatballs, Stripes) and freaks it out with raunch and violent revenge themes. It's as if Russ Meyer had made Death Wish III with an adenoidal cast, though it isn't that good. There is some sociological interest (probably fraudulent) in Clark's picture of redneck depravity in the Florida Everglades of the 1950s, but he isn't enough of an honest, enthusiastic vulgarian to make these ancient dirty jokes come off as anything but sour and grotesque. It's not the obscenity, but the relentless, petty meanness that finally gets to you (though there is a clumsily handled antiracist theme for the sake of redeeming social value). With Dan Monahan, Mark Herrier, and Wyatt Knight.
Juvenile, disgusting and boring...only funny part is the Body Condom
All the characters look the same, generic fifty teens. The film is similarly generic.
sexist/racist piece of crap
