Porky's Revenge
[AllPosters.com] Buy posters from this movie
by Hawkboy

"Now, all we can hope for is the prequels."
1 stars

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

OK, the people in this movie, what are they, like 30? The first movie in this series was at least halfway decent and had some goofy sex jokes. This movie just plain sucks.

For Example: Ms. Balbricker, the fat gym teacher (who I thought was supposed to be a lesbian), is reunited with her lost love, a fat guy in a sailor's hat. Willie Nelson sings "Can't Help Falling in Love" as the two fat people run towards each other in slow motion. Now, the comedic potential of this scene is obvious to everyone, even blind people.

Fatties hit each other, fall down.

One fatty trips and falls down, the other fatty falls on top.

Fatty sees leg of lamb, forgets about other fatty, heads to buffet table.

Skinny girl in bikini shows up, male fatty forgets about female fatty, chases after bikini girl a la Benny Hill.

Take your pick. They'd all be funny. It's an easy call. Which does the movie pick? NONE OF 'EM! They hug each other, kiss, Willie keeps singing, then the scene ends. Are we supposed to be happy, merely because the Fatties are happy in love? NO! We want to laugh, damn you! LAUGH! Just give us SOMETHING, for God's sake!

Oh, yeah, and there's a plot about basketball or something.

Rent a porno.
