Porky’s II: The Next Day (1983)

PorkysII“[very angry at this point] Get the Flock out of here! ” – Carter

Number of Times Seen – No clue (tons of times on cable and 16 Jun 2015)

Brief Synopsis – In the sequel to Porky’s the kids at Angel Beach High continue their antics and even find ways to deal with corrupt city officials and religious zealots trying to shut down a production of Shakespeare.

My Take on it – I read that this sequel was made by the director Bob Clark solely for the ability to make A Christmas Story (1983).

Truth is, if that statement is true, it wouldn’t surprise me much because director Bob Clark did a wonderful job on that movie.  He apparently devoted less time to this one and despite numerous scenes that are great, overall this movie is far inferior to its predecessor from just a year before.

The basic idea stays the same and the plot structure also is similar.

This added aspects of the city officials and racism make for some great scenes that shouldn’t be missed, so if you want to see them just watch the final half hour of this.

Love how they also deal with members of the KKK.

Bottom Line – Still has some funny scenes, but not as good as the original. The final two scenes make this worth watching.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Bob Clark directed this film at the same time he was helming A Christmas Story (1983). Even the “major award” (the racy mannequin’s leg in fishnet stockings-lamp) makes an appearance when the kids are performing the swordfight scene of “MacBeth” onstage.  (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
