Did You Know?

The name of the top-floor secret-room at Porky's bar and club was "Porky's Pen". The room however is only ever referred to in the film's story and is never actually seen in the movie.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During the final confrontation, when Porky is threatening the boys with a white bat, he swings the bat slightly and hits his own guy to his right on the nose.See more »
Pee Wee Morris:[to Tommy, about the normal-sized condom he was given] It's too big.
[Everybody else laughs]
Tommy Turner:Peewee, we don't have any training rubbers.
Mickey:He needs the junior size.
Brian Schwartz:[Seriously] Peewee, tie a knot in it.
Meat:[as Peewee is given another condom and he returns to the bus] Hey Peewee, what do you think this is? The return desk at Macys?

The guiltiest of pleasures...., 15 August 1999
Author: Mister-6 from United States

No one goes into a movie like "Porky's" expecting greatness. But if you get at least one good laugh, that's good enough.

Two laughs, even better.

Three, great.

Four, fantastic.

I got more laughs than this out of "Porky's", but since I went in expecting them to reach the lowest common denominator, I got just what I came in looking for.

Who doesn't know the story, o connoisseurs of lowbrow humor? What you want to know is if it's funny. Of course it is, but this isn't the best movie for family video night (then again, it depends on the family).

I won't spoil any of the gags for you but I can tell you the biggest ones depend, separately, on eggs, oversized condoms, holes in the girls' showers and a prank call to the local diner. And where, in one instance, you'd keep a driver's license.

Sorry, you'll just have to see the thing.

Eight stars, and beware of moral turpitude.
