Audience Member James Komack is best known for producing The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Chico and the Man and Welcome Back, Kotter. To be honest, him making the third in this series is a thankless job, as Bob Clark didn't return. He could have just been quiet about coming on board, but he told the Los Angeles Times that when Clark made the last movie that he "failed to understand their own formula. Porky's touched on reality, it presented a cross-section of adolescent sex life during a certain time frame. Bob apparently tried to elevate his big success and use it to portray a message. But the original was not a film about humanity; it was a film, pure and simple, about teen-age sex. The sequel, a whitewash of the original, didn't play." As for Clark, he was interested but also busy directing Rhinestone. He wanted the time to think of a new story, but the producers hired Ziggy Steinberg to write the screenplay, which Clark hated. He was so upset that he refused to have anything to do with this movie. During the semi-final basketball game, the cheerleaders promise the team an orgy if they win. This did not happen in the 50s. And so the film begins, bringing back Porky (Chuck Mitchell) and most of the cast — Nancy Parsons, who played Ms. Balbricker had lost a lot of weight since the first movie and only came back if she got a percentage of the profits — and has a new character in Porky's daughter Blossom, who is in love with Meat. As bad as the movie is, the soundtrack makes up for it. Dave Edmunds brought together Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Willie Nelson, Carl Perkins, The Crawling King Snakes (Robert Plant and Phil Collins) and The Fabulous Thunderbirds to create music that is way better than this movie could ever hope to deserve. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review daniel k Paul Rudd was not in this movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review jordan m I think I would've hated this movie if I'd went into it with high expectations, but I didn't because if it had actually been great it would've been the first time I'd seen the third movie in a comedy trilogy be good (Meet the Parents, the Hangover movies, etc all had bad 3rd editions). They had enough jokes and a decent enough plot here that the movie deserved to be made, though I will likely always look back with surprise that they really destroyed the riverboat in a low budget movie like this one. That's the type of thing that surely could've been done with miniatures and seemed totally unnecessary in a way that weirdly added to its glory. One day when I'm dying in a hospital bed and one of my grandkids is clutching my wrinkled hands, I'll whisper to them, "I can't believe they really destroyed the riverboat" and they'll have to ask their grandma what on Earth I'm talking about. And she'll tell them she doesn't know, because she doesn't cement these movies in her memory like I did, and she'll probably have dementia by then. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review robert p I just love crass, rude, and slapstick comedy!!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The original Porky's movie is a subculture classic in that it influenced the teen sex film in the 80s. A shallow story, it was meant to resonate with teem males of that era. Despite its vulgarity, low budget and uncouth plot, it spawned a series of sequels including this one, which falls well short of the original. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Third part in the Porky's trilogy of teen comedy films is a fun conclusion the series. The film still has the zany elements that made the films funny and memorable. The cast do a fine job here, and each actor brings something memorable and amusing in their roles. I really enjoyed the trilogy and each film was unique in their own right, even if they weren't great. If you love a fun comedy film that is mindless in its content, then this is a perfect film to watch. Usually by a third entry in a franchise, the ideas start to wander and become tiresome. However with this entry, it still manages to be funny with an interesting plot. The Porky's trilogy of films was the original teen comedy films. Although they were crude in certain parts, compared by today's standards, they're fairly harmless. The third film doesn't break any new ground, but it definitely a good little film that is a pleasant time waster. Just go into this film expecting something amusing, and you won't be disappointed. This is a must see for fans of the first two entries in the trilogy, and although it is nothing original that is being conveyed on-screen, there is all the necessary ingredient to make this is a good conclusion that is funny for what it is. Porky's Revenge is good from start to finish and it still has everything you'd expect from the series. Although in some areas, the film does lack, there is enough good comedic material to make it work well enough for its hour and a half run time.
