Overview

This "Double Feature" DVD from Fox offers those nostalgic for the heyday of teen comedies a bargain by placing Porky's and Porky's 2: The Next Day on the same disc. This double-sided DVD serves one film on each side in an anamorphic widescreen format. Picture quality is mediocre but acceptable; both films suffer from dust speckling and the occasional scratch, but the image on each film is much sharper and more colorful than previous video versions. Sound quality is a bit better; both films have been given new Dolby Digital surround remixes. Neither film makes a dramatic use of sound but everything sounds nice and clear. Extras are limited to trailers for each film and bonus trailers for Revenge of the Nerds and Revenge of the Nerds Pt. 2, but getting both films together on one disc is enough of a deal to make up for this. In the end, Fox's disc of Porky's and Porky's 2: The Next Day isn't impressive in terms of extras or technical quality, but it offers a convenient way for comedy fans to collect both films on one convenient disc.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
Love it or loathe it (and there are a goodly number of people on either side), Porky's was one of the most successful comedies of its day, spawning two direct sequels and inspiring an incalculable number of lowbrow teen comedies, most recently including American Pie (1999). Pee Wee (Dan Monahan), Billy (Mark Herrier), Tommy (Wyatt Knight), and Mickey (Roger Wilson) are four painfully horny high school kids growing up in South Florida in the 1950's. Desperate to rid themselves of their cumbersome virginity, they head out to a sleazy bar near the swamps called Porky's, where local legend has it that the owner will fix you up with a prostitute for a reasonable fee. After Porky takes their money and dumps them in the swamp, the guys vow to get revenge. Meanwhile, Pee Wee has to deal with his shrinking penis, someone drills a hole in the wall of the girl's shower, the guys encounter a prostitute named Cherry Forever, and anti-Semitism rears its ugly head. Cheerfully rude in a manner few mainstream films had achieved at that time, Porky's, for better or worse, changed the standard of what was acceptable in a screen comedy. Remarkably enough, two years later director Bob Clark made the holiday favorite A Christmas Story, which displayed his considerable range, if nothing else. In Porky's 2: The Next Day, the real world once more takes a back seat to a caricature of itself as the same Florida high-school teens who grossed profits in the original by grossing out, have to band together to stop their Shakespeare festival (!!) from being cancelled, due to a crusading, right-wing reverend's attack on the bard's "lewd" content. The reverend is joined by Miss Balbrick (Nancy Parsons), the girls' gym teacher and also the Ku Klux Klan who object to Romeo being played by an Indian. These unlikely allies come up against the libido-laden teens who strip the Ku Klux Klanners and send them running through town naked. Similar styles of revenge are taken to handle Miss Balbrick and the right-wing reverend - apparently all's well that ends well at the box office. -- Eleanor Mannika &

I give this movie three stars because it paved the way for movies like the 'American Pie' series; otherwise it would merit only two stars. It seems to sell itself as a teen sex movie for guys, but it shows as much male frontal nudity as female (even more male in 'Porky's 2').
