Porky's

Movie Summary

Director:
Bob Clark
Released:
1981
Rating:
R
Porky's is a raunchy 1982 comedy about teenage lust, revenge and girl's locker rooms. Set in mid-1950's Florida, the film follows the exploits of six middle class male teenagers who escape their environment through practical jokes, high school rebellion and a trip to Porky's, a strip club on the outskirts of town. In an effort to lose their virginity, the boys have heard rumors that if they pay the owner, Porky himself, they will be able to hire a prostitute. After Porky takes their money but humiliates them by dumping them in a swamp, the boys plan their revenge. Initially derided by critics when first released, Porky's became a box office smash and one of the most influential teen comedies of all time. The film was written and directed by Canadian Bob Clark, also known as the man behind the seminal 1974 slasher film "Black Christmas," and the 1983 cult favorite "A Christmas Story."
