The naughty high schoolers of Angel Beach High now seek revenge on a group of KKK religious fanatics and corrupt politicians who want to shut down their Shakespeare production after they cast a Seminole transfer student in the lead.
As graduation nears for the class of 1955 at Angel Beach High, the gang once again faces off against their old enemy, Porky, who wants them to throw the school's championship basketball game because he's betting on the opposing team.
In 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help their buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
When the students of Angel Beach High decide to stage "An Evening With Shakespeare," their efforts are threatened by Miss Balbricker, who views the works of Shakespeare as obscene. She enlists the help of Reverend Bubba Flavel, a religious fanatic who brings along his flock of followers to pressure the school into shutting down the production. When they succeed with the help of corrupt city officials seeking re-election, the gang don't get mad... they get even! Written by

Do you know how I got my reputation?
In the 8th grade, I didn't know anything. A bunch of guys wanted to get me to go skinny dipping, I didn't want to but I didn't care if they did so I just watched. I thought it was funny, flopping around...the next day I was a slut, the original mattress-back.

This is clearly a fun-filled sequel to the original classic film because once again, the eccentric cast of characters really show great chemistry amongst each others and only a few characters have truly transitioned. Pee Wee is still Pee Wee but he is no longer the virgin everyone knew from the film, but still gets himself in hot water. Tommy and Billy are still the pranksters of the group, pulling off one of the funniest pranks against their arch-nemesis Miss Balbricker. Let's just say this involves a stall and a snake. Wendy truly has risen from bit player to more one of the gang here with her impeccable stunt in the third act of the film. Tim is no longer the racist good guy he was in the beginning and is best friends with Brian, who also has gotten his rank upped to major player.
This isn't a bad movie and indeed there are some great cheeky moments and scenes but the overall feeling of the movie is one of desperation, thankfully the follow up to this was great but to follow a classic like Porky's i expected much better. The usual misfits from angel beach return led by the great peewee,and they are involved in a school play but when they cast an native American Indian then the local church and KKK group get involved in protest. I suppose that's the problem here as the film takes a stance against racism which is all well and good but it isn't great in the company of the filthy jokes and just seems to be there to gain acclaim and from what i read this wasn't a success upon release so hey ho to that idea. "Porky's II" does have a few slow moments, but nevertheless it is enjoyable to watch to get a few laughs.
Overall rating: 5 out of 10.
