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.
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
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
That'll teach those cops to punish children for trying to drink and solicit prostitutes! Goddamn fascist cops.
The genesis of the modern teen comedy can be traced back through the decades like any other cinematic lineage, and here's one nostalgic stop in the timeline. I fought my adolescent war in the '90's, so I grew up with American Pie as my guide through teen debauchery, but I still have a fond appreciation for the untrimmed raunch that the '70's and '80's so gleefully indulged in, and while this film is set in the '50's, the familiar antics of perverted peeping toms, fetishistic cheerleaders and outrageous practical jokes make for a fun time no matter what time period is being spotlighted. I do find it funny, though, how Bob Clark seems to be at the epicenter of what…
