Porky’s is a 1981 Canadian-American production about the celebration of toxic masculinity, racism, and sex crimes.
‘Kid’ has a small
Wants to get laid. Can’t get laid. Even the town bike turned him down when he was wearing a condom from the start of the date.
Then the racism pokes it’s head in to say “How Y’all doin!” Then the antisemitic cousin comes a calling.
Outing to the swamp strip club goes weirdly wrong, they must get revenge.
Side trip to sexual objectification and vintage bush, something that would have to be explained today and the invention of the glory hole.
Side trip about Kim Cattrall as a screaming gym teacher who is turned on by the smell of dirty jocks.
Revenge is gotten, police abuse is dispensed. PeeWee gets fucked by the town bike who lost her bet that revenge would be gotten.
The fifth highest grossing movie of 1982, behind ET, Tootsie, An Officer and a Gentleman, and Rocky 3 but ahead of Star Trek 2, 48 hours, Poltergeist, Best Little Whorehouse, and (white) Annie and probably Canada’s heights grossing film to date, corrected, don’t you believe the Wikipedia lies!
