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.
Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help a buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
This is a straight version of the old fairy tale, with John Carradine as the Emperor. It was filmed in South Florida, with exteriors in Coral Gables and Miami's Vizcaya. The hero bests the ... See full summary »
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
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 »
The film takes place the day after the events in Porky's. In the original film, both Mickey and Tim were roughed up late in the film. Both can be seen with cuts and bandages on their faces. In Mickey's case, he is also seen limping and with crutches. All wounds have disappeared the next day. See more »
For those that liked the first, this is the perfect sequel. For those that didn't like it, this movie isn't directed at you. Stay away from it and don't even start complaining about the nudity and sexuality in it. But for those of us that appreciate the humour contained in here, there is more of the same stuff.
I will just tell you that I have not laughed as much as I did in this movie in quite some time unless you include Eddie Murphy's Delirious. But as a film this is one funny gag after another once again. If you want to know what is generically funny about this film, read the review for Porky's. It is the same kind of humour in both films. However, each film has a few scenes that I will never forget. In the first one it was the penis sketch artist scene. In here it will be the rendition that Billy and his counterpart put on in their Shakespeare Festival. They are dueling to the death in an epic sword fight. One of the swords break and it is up to Tommy to find a sword for them to finish to scene properly. So he hands him a leg from a woman's manikin...the same leg that made a nice lamp in Christmas Story, both films directed by honorary Canadian, Bob Clark. This has to be seen to be appreciated.
I loved this movie and I really recommend it to those that love high school humour. And if you have seen the first and liked it, you will love this one as well.
