News & Interviews for Porky's
Critic Reviews for Porky's
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.

Audience Reviews for Porky's
Porky's is one of those 80's teen comedies that received so much negative press upon initial release. Although far from perfect, there is a certain enjoyable quality about the film that makes it fun to watch. Directed by Bob Clark, who also directed Black Christmas, Porky's is an underrated comedic gem that is surprisingly very funny. The film would later have influence on many of the teen comedy films of the late 90's and you can clearly see why. Although far from perfect, Porky's is far better than what most critics have said about it, and it doesn't deserve all the flack it has received. The cast are enjoyable in their parts, and Bob Clark does a fine job with his material to make something amusing for the audience. Watching this film, it's hard to imagine that such a film ever caused a stir among critics, as there has been far more vulgar Teen comedy films that has been released since. At times the film is uneven, luckily there is enough gags to keep you interested. There are things that could have been done better in a few areas, but overall, this is a good comedy worth seeing if you want to see an underrated teen comedy that is much better than what most people would claim it to be. There are scenes in the film that are very funny and quite memorable, and some of the characters are quite likeable as well. I feel that this is a much underrated film that deserves to be rediscovered and appreciate as a good teen comedy that simply is a harmless, fun yarn that will probably make you smile.
A fun 80s sex comedy mixed with a fifties teen movie. It's interesting, mostly funny, and entertaining. But on the other hand there are a bunch of stupid jokes and I didn't like the ending, it was ridiculous. Overall, it's pretty good, but it could have been better.
