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 »
At least two different snakes are used when the boys want to scare Ms. Balbricker. The snake that Tommy pulls out of the box in the locker room is brownish in color, while the snake that they put into the sewer pipe is a much lighter, yellowish color. Then it returns to the brown color when it escapes into the gym. See more »
Pee Wee it's not that bad, just tell the guys that you called up all the girls in your harem and none of them wanted to do it with all those jerks.
I bet you would.
I don't have a harem.
That's not what I heard.

"Hello? Anybody? This is the humor in the film... can somebody help me? I'm trapped under a huge pile of sub-plots..."
This is the second Porky film... and it just exactly manages to be slightly worse than the first. Surprising(and unfortunate), since this actually does manage to produce a laugh or two. The humor is basically the same, but this somehow gets you laughing, at least a time or two. There is a rather funny exchange that ends with principal Carter telling a reverend where he can put his beloved flock. However, most of the humor is drowned out in subplots drenched in political correctness(rather contrasting to the 'point' of the films, which seems to be to be as offensive as possible). This does make for a few entertaining scenes, though, but the overall product is just not worth it. The plot is a mess. The acting is unimpressive and uninspired(apart from possibly Bill Wiley as Reverend Flavel), and at times terribly overplayed(Edward Winter's last scene being a prime example). The characters are underdeveloped and poorly written; they are all paper-thin clichés. The good guys are all heroic and intelligent(not terribly so, but still) and the bad guys are hypocritical SOB's. It's too easy to hate those you are supposed to, and almost as easy to like the ones you are supposed to. The writing is of the same low quality as that of the first film. Dialog is poor, both as far as writing and delivery goes. All in all, funnier than the first, but not as good(astoundingly enough). I recommend it to people who liked the first, but don't go out of your way to see it. 4/10
