Isn't a very accomplished storytelling effort, wandering blindly around pranks and melodrama as it fights to find a higher purpose beyond being just another horndog teen feature.
Bob Clark's teen sex comedy carries a stamp of social satrie that is timeless.
Porky's sure ain't high art, but if accepted at the level of lightweight locker-room humor, it's fun.
Not often you get a "Racism is bad!" message inside a "Misogyny is good!" film.
Juvenile and trashy. Not in a good way.
While Porky's may have spawned hundreds, if not thousands, of imitators, it's having trouble keeping up with the barriers it broke more than two decades ago.
