Bob Clark, James Toback
But at least it's got some laughs. I'll spare you the ceaseless tedium of what goes on in PORKY'S 2 and PORKY'S REVENGE, but let's just say the first hour of the original film has more chuckles than both sequels put together. If you thought PORKY'S was a flimsy collection of dirty jokes that got wedged next to some too-heavy "after-school special" material, then you'll hate Parts 2 and 3. (Part 2 actually tries to preach about free speech, and it does so pretty often.) And the movie has no "Porky" in it!
The massive evil slob does return in PORKY'S REVENGE, but that doesn't help the flick any. Cheap-looking, witless and amateurish to the extreme, this third entry was so much of a money-grab that not even Bob Clark could be roped back in. (And this is a guy who went one to direct two movies called BABY GENIUSES!) This time around our 32-year-old high-schoolers are getting ready to graduate, but when Porky pops up and threatens to monkey with the guys' basketball championship, blah blah blah. The movie makes GILLIGAN'S ISLAND look like LOST.
-- A feature-length audio commentary with writer/director Bob Clark. Actually quite an info-packed little chat-track here. If you're a bigger fan of the flick than I am, you'll probably enjoy it.
-- Porky's Through the Peephole: Bob Clark Looks Back -- A solid 15-minute look at some of the movie's most memorable moments. A fine little featurette, especially if you don't feel like sitting through all 90 minutes of the commentary.
-- Porky's: A Comedy Classic -- 11 minutes of two comedians I've never heard of talking about the flick's skin, gags, and lasting impact. The comics aren't all that amusing, but they make some interesting points about PORKY'S ... kinda.
You'll also get the original theatrical trailers for PORKY'S, PORKY'S 2: THE NEXT DAY and PORKY'S REVENGE; a bizarre promo clip for the Atari 2600 PORKY'S video game; and a pair of TV spots. Not a bad haul for the fans, all things considered.
