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.

Bob Clark directed this film at the same time he was helming A Christmas Story (1983). Even the "major award" (the racy mannequin's leg in fishnet stockings-lamp) makes an appearance when the kids are performing the swordfight scene of "MacBeth" onstage. See more »

Hey Pee Wee, how's it feel?
How does what feel?
Same as it always feels.
I don't believe it.
What are you guys talking about, I got bodies laid all over South Florida.
Morris, the last time you got any action, it was your fist. The old rosy palm.
You guys are just jealous because I ruined Wendy for everybody else.

Now that she's had me, what's left?

If you liked the original (which I did) and expect the same level of "sophistication" here, don't. This is not the sequel you've been waiting for.
"Porky's II: The Next Day" offers up some laughs but the rest is filled in with sub-plots about the KKK, political campaigning, American Indians and right-wing religion. THIS in a movie with a character named Pee-Wee?
Maybe Bob Clark felt he needed to do some social atonement for the non-PC stuff he committed in the original. But just because it's PC doesn't mean it's funny.
No Porky, no locker room humor, no Miss Honeywell, no shower scenes... but at least Miss Balbricker (Parsons) gets her comeuppance thanks to a snake in a most unexpected place.
And as far as verbal intelligence goes, its highlight comes when the principal (Christmas) tell Reverend Flavel (Wiley) what to do with his flock. And if that isn't the level of sophistication you were hoping for, consider yourself warned.
Four stars. Boogedy, boogedy, boogedy!
