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.
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.
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.
Meat, an Angel Beach high school student, picks up a shapely girl when she appears to have broken down by the side of the road; he is, however, shocked when her face doesn't match her figure. Not only that, she turns out to be the daughter of Porky, who has re-opened his nightclub in a Mississippi riverboat. Is this Porky's opportunity for revenge, or will the Angel Beach crowd outwit him once again? Written by
Believe it or not, Porky's is the most successful Canadian-made film in history (still!). Porky's was the movie that first graduated from the drive-in circuit to the cinema. A big hit in both Canada and the U.S., it was the commercials that became my gateway to adult entertainment. Sadly, I was only 9 when the movie came out, so I had to wait.
After seeing all three movies a number of times, I have to admit that Porky's Revenge is the best one. The story: Set in the late 1950's, a bunch of boys with "sex on the brain" battle with their nemesis, Porky. Porky is a "southern gentleman" who runs an illegal casino/brothel situated on a riverboat. The boys have been wanting to make this man's life miserable ever since he embarrassed them in the first movie. So once again, they plot to destroy his operation once and for all.
The movie had some great scenes, like the pool party, the sneaking into a teacher's apartment and then seeing her and another faculty member doing S&M, and the basketball scenes. This one's script is a lot better and James "Welcome Back, Kotter" Komack does some decent direction. It's not very good, but it's watchable enough, I've seen this one about 7 times, including today.
One last note: Porky's riverboat casino looks like the insides of The Hard Rock Hotel/Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. I guess now we know where Peter Morton got his inspiration from!
