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.
In 1954, a group of Florida high school students try to help their buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seeking revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.

When the students of Angel Beach High decide to stage "An Evening With Shakespeare," their efforts are threatened by Miss Balbricker, who views the works of Shakespeare as obscene.

A number of the character names in the movie were double entendres. These included Meat, Pee Wee, and Balbricker. In the original first film Porky's (1981), other character names with double meanings, also included Porky, Honeywell and Cherry Forever. See more »
The film takes place the day after the events in Porky's. In the original film, both Mickey and Tim were roughed up late in the film. Both can be seen with cuts and bandages on their faces. In Mickey's case, he is also seen limping and with crutches. All wounds have disappeared the next day. See more »

What in the world?

Nah, it can't be. I fired them.

Writer/director Bob Clark must've made a mint from his box office smash Porky's, so I can't really blame him for capitalising on his success with a guaranteed cash-cow sequel that repeats the same formula of dumb pranks and penis gags, while once again throwing in some racial tension to drive the story. What I do blame him for is making the film such a laugh-free mess, while toning down the raunchiness, one of the few factors that made the first Porky's bearable.
No-one in Porky's II gets laid: they're too busy prancing around on stage in a dreadful Shakespearian high-school production, which brings them to blows with a local evangelist Reverend Flavel (Bill Wiley), who deems the show obscene, the KKK, who object to Seminole Indian John Henry (Joseph Runningfox) playing the part of Romeo, and sleazy county commissioner Gebhardt (Edward Winter), who tries to seduce Pee Wee's girlfriend Wendy (Kaki Hunter). Cue lots of desperate gags that involve someone dressed as a George Romero-style zombie, an exotic dancer dubbed Graveyard Gloria (Cisse Cameron), a sword-fight with a mannequin's leg, a snake in a toilet bowl, and fake vomit.
3.5/10, rounded up to 4 for IMDb.
