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
Bob Clark was invited to write and direct a third Porky's film. He was interested, but also busy directing Rhinestone (1984) and said that he would have to think about a good storyline for the film. The producers didn't want to wait for him to do this however, and hired Ziggy Steinberg to write a screenplay for the film. Clark hated the screenplay and was furious that the producer had it written behind his back; as a result, he refused to have anything to do with the film. See more »
Although the film is set in 1955, the principal cars used in the film are a 1957 model Ford, Chevrolet and Thunderbird. See more »
Made without the participation of Bob Clark, this third film in the 'Porky's' franchise follows the teen friends to graduation, with more mischief including another encounter with Chuck Mitchell as the titular antagonist from Part One. Scattered amusing moments include the friends spying on a scientist teacher at her home and the series-long running gag of Pee Wee's mother walking in on him, however, the film fails to charter any new ground; it is not even raunchier than the first installment. The film is not true to its title either, which implies Mitchell plotting revenge on the teens for trashing his establishment in the first film. It is hard not to wonder how the movie may have turned out with Clark's involvement. After all, he did wonders pulling the material in different directions in the second film, which became less about pranks and more about the friends sticking up for their classmates regardless of ethnicity, plus supporting their principal and teachers against hyper-conservatives crowds. Kaki Hunter also very nicely evolved into 'one of the guys' in the second film, whereas here she is relegated back to a second supporting character. Of course, no film with a half-naked Swedish exchange student is ever going to be worthless and there is something sweet about the gang trying to help their coach with financial woes, but this is clearly a step below its predecessors.
