10.04.05DVR Somewhere along the way, Porky's became synonymous with lude trash just one step away from porn. It's really not. It's actually a pretty good fun movie. Sure it doesn't shy away from exactly how horny every high school guy is, but it's just as much about the era, friendships, and gettin back at The Man. Sure there's the famous shower room scene and yes the whole movie centers around poor pee-wee trying to get laid, but isn't that what American Graffitti is also about? Dazed and Confused? Fast Times at Ridgemont High? After watching this again the movie feels much more like a low budget drive-in second cousin to those films. The fact that Bob Clark made A Christmas Story right after this begins to make more sense. How he can go from this to Baby Geniuses, or from Black Christmas and Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things to this is still pretty inconcievable.
