As the end credits roll, an additional scene is shown featuring Pee-wee and Wendy on a school bus. Also, Balbricker returns one final time in her never-ending quest to punish the boys. See more »
In the theatrical version, on the "beaver shoot", the whole time the other guys are staring at the naked girls, Pee Wee is blocked by a fat girl who constantly bends over, showing Pee Wee her large rear end. Finally, Pee Wee yells, "God damn it, would you move your fat ass?!", ruining the whole shoot. In the TV version, you don't see the fat girl, and she is not mentioned. Then Pee Wee yells, "Move it!", ruining the whole scene and making it nonsensical. See more »
All of us have certain films, not well liked by either critics or public, which nonetheless really strike a chord within us. They're our guilty pleasures, movies that we never tire of, but don't brag about. "Porky's" is one of mine. It's insipid, inane, and amateurish. The plot doesn't make much sense, and the characters don't behave rationally. But I don't care. "Porky's" is fun, transporting me back to a mythical time in America when it was great to be a teenager. Life was a lark, issues were black and white, and all endings are happy. In this regards "Porky's" resembles many of Disney's movies like "Pollyanna", a haunt of other guilty pleasures. Sheer fantasy, sheer entertainment. I dig this movie, but that's just my opinion.
