The naughty high schoolers of Angel Beach High now seek revenge on a group of KKK religious fanatics and corrupt politicians who want to shut down their Shakespeare production after they cast a Seminole transfer student in the lead.
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.
Freddy the gym teacher has to teach remedial English in summer (high) school, if he wants tenure. As he can only teach gym and his students want fun, emphasis is on "field trips" - until he's fired unless all his students pass the test.
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. She enlists the help of Reverend Bubba Flavel, a religious fanatic who brings along his flock of followers to pressure the school into shutting down the production. When they succeed with the help of corrupt city officials seeking re-election, the gang don't get mad... they get even!Written by
"Legs" are a common reference in this movie and a recurring theme for director Bob Clark.. The school Principal at one point tells the students to "break a leg". In two different scenes a comment about the "leg bone is connected to the foot bone". During the school play a female mannequin's leg is used as an improvised prop to replace a broken sword. Five months after this movie's release, 'A Christmas Story' was released from the same director which featured the now iconic Leg Lamp. 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 »
When a movie is succesful, there will be sequels. It's almost astonishing there were only two sequels to the success of the original Porkys. But then again as they say, you can't capture lightning in a bottle. Or more accurate "erection" in a bottle. Now if you are offended by this, you probably should not watch this movie (although why you would come here after not having seen the mayhem of the first Porkys will probably always remain your secret).
Having said that and while this tries to be different but also maintain the sentiment of the group of boys (now even older than in the first one, but playing that teenage age they are moste definitely not anymore). It succeeds to a degree - some jokes hit home but not as many as in the first one. Even though the creator came back for this one, it never reaches the height it set itself.
