PORKYS got the fame this deserved, 24 July 2005
Author: selfparody from United States

Okay, let me be blunt: about two thirds of this movie just flat out sucks, and many of the ideas in it are done to death. But the things that are funny are work like a charm. It's one of the very few 80s sex comedies that actually snuck a joke or two in that weren't about gay people to go alone with the pale, not very attractive TA. The feminism seems, looking at what Troma did after this, kind of like lip service, but it's still better than most competition.

The plot is a bunch of softball players generally irritate their significant others, and they form a female softball team.

And the music is great.
