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…
Why I re-watched this one? I found the DVD in a thrift store and it said it had a DVD commentary from the director...the late Bob Clark. Well turns out there is no commentary....but this was a blast from my past so I watched it again.
What is this one about? Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help a buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
My thoughts on this one? Ok...I am old enough that I saw this movie in theaters when I was in junior high. Seeing this movie in theaters was one of my most…
I remember seeing Porky's when I was about fourteen or fifteen and thinking it was really grimy and far sleazier than the late 90s and early 2000s sex comedies I was used to. The slimy redneck strip-club, the insanely mean-spirited pranks, the infamous changing room scene, the strange moments of social commentary — this is an incredibly politically incorrect film that could not exist today. It's also extremely funny and consistently entertaining with surprisingly solid performances. Dan Monahan, who opens the film with a case of morning wood, is particularly hilarious. Bob Clark gives the film a sleazy, cheap look and a total lack of story, both of which work to its favour. The finale is big and impressive (though I honestly feel a little bad for Porky). This will likely horrify a modern audience, but I have a definite soft spot for obnoxious 80s sex comedies, and this is their king.
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.
Hadn't seen this in centuries and it's more or less how I remember. It would be infinitely funnier and more interesting if it focused on the adult characters - scratch that, maybe if it were just a buddy movie starring Doug McGrath and Kim Cattrall's characters.
All of the predatory horseplay is probably enough to set off 100,00 trigger warnings on tumblr, but really it's just dull and seemed obsolete even when I was 10. It's hard to believe that Bob Clark wrote this, when you compare it to Dead Of Night or Black Christmas, but also very easy to believe when you compare it to Baby Geniuses 2.
I dunno, it's Porky's, whaddya want.
I found this film at Best Buy for $5 and that is about what it is worth. I never saw this one growing up and was litstening to a movie podcast where they talked about it. So my interest was up to see it.
It is a typical 80's teen sex comedy that has some parts that are hilariously bad. The times it spends with the boys running around trying to get laid were funny but the parts with the adults were bad.
There really is no point in explaining the plot as it is what you would expect. A bunch of teenage boys trying to get laid. It is fun to have in the collection for remembering the 80's but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that isn't looking for it.
Cool. It's a nice film to watch when you arrive home from a heavy day of work. It's very funny, light and entertaining. It remind me of American Pie but less dirty.
"Porky's" was the first R rated movie that I was able to sneak into the theatre to see when I was a lad of 14.
Thank You "Porky's" for being an important moment in a young man's life.
Thank You "Porky's" for starting me on that path to female breast obsession that has ruled my life ever since.
Thank You "Porky's" for teaching me that racism against Jews is wrong.
Thank You "Porky's" for teaching me to insult, prank and completely belittle my friends as a way of showing friendship and trust.
Thank You "Porky's" for teaching me that it's okay to do whatever you want if your brother is the Sheriff.
Thank You "Porky's" for making me never want…
I need to learn how to knit.
Well, that was... friggin' weird. Are we all sure this isn't a secret David Lynch movie, and he's just never owned up to it?
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
When discussing film genres, the movie milestone that gets the ball rolling is usually the best (for example, Halloween, which started the teenybopper slasher craze). But in the case of the Teen Sex Comedy, that isn't the case. In fact, I can't think of any flick in this genre that would be considered "great", some I enjoyed mildly but none I would vehemently defend. Porky's is the film that started it all, and I have to say, it isn't much.
When I first saw Porky's many years ago, I thought it was hilarious raunchy fun (but being only 13 at the time, it didn't take much to titilate), but having watched it again recently, I now realize it is really,…
Classic! Thumbs up!
