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

The last part of the epic "Porky's"-trilogy is undeniably the weakest, mainly because it feels so straight to video. The production often seems lazy and cheap, and the director didn't exactly work overtime ever. Basketball has never looked this lackluster. The screenwriter tries his best to copy the style of the original, but the way things are directed makes the raunch look nasty rather than funny. The scene with Tommy and Balbricker, presumably one of the most hilarious scenes in the movie, just kinda made me ashamed for watching this. Has it come to this, I wondered, as Balbricker attempted to pull down his underwear for minutes straight. The only redeeming factor left are the actors, that surprisingly still look like they want to be there. Pee Wee is always entertaining, even if he doesn't get to do much. It's still Pee Wee. I also appreciate that Porky is back for the occasion, even though his evil plan makes little sense. And why is he telling people about it? That's just asking to be stopped. Either way, this is not too bad for a second sequel, but it's just so clearly not by the original makers.
