Pee Wee it's not that bad, just tell the guys that you called up all the girls in your harem and none of them wanted to do it with all those jerks.
I bet you would.
I don't have a harem.
That's not what I heard.

If you liked the original (which I did) and expect the same level of "sophistication" here, don't. This is not the sequel you've been waiting for.
"Porky's II: The Next Day" offers up some laughs but the rest is filled in with sub-plots about the KKK, political campaigning, American Indians and right-wing religion. THIS in a movie with a character named Pee-Wee?
Maybe Bob Clark felt he needed to do some social atonement for the non-PC stuff he committed in the original. But just because it's PC doesn't mean it's funny.
No Porky, no locker room humor, no Miss Honeywell, no shower scenes... but at least Miss Balbricker (Parsons) gets her comeuppance thanks to a snake in a most unexpected place.
And as far as verbal intelligence goes, its highlight comes when the principal (Christmas) tell Reverend Flavel (Wiley) what to do with his flock. And if that isn't the level of sophistication you were hoping for, consider yourself warned.
Four stars. Boogedy, boogedy, boogedy!
