Not in the same league as its predecessor, sadly.
4 April 2019 | by Hey_SwedenSee all my reviews

Writer / director Bob Clark just couldn't come up with an engaging enough sequel to his 1982 sex comedy classic. Since it is "another day", our gang starts out on a predictable enough note, as Pee Wee is badgered about losing his virginity, and finding companionship for his friends. Gone is the ultra-raunchy, T & A of the first "Porky's", as Clark seems determined here to go the ultra-politically correct route. The gang finds that, of many groups spewing their nonsense, the KKK are ripe for some retribution. They also incur the wrath of a Bible thumping religious leader (Bill Wiley), who comes down hard on their high school Shakespeare production, denouncing it as trash especially since a Seminole youth (Joseph Runningfox) has been cast in the lead.

The cast continues to be watchable, but this is is pretty disappointing given the nature of the original. It comes off as if Clark is trying to apologize for the R-rated shenanigans, when he had nothing to apologize for. Unfortunately, most of the material is uninspired. "Porky's II: The Next Day" is certainly good for some mild laughs, and smiles (Coach Balbricker (Nancy Parsons) gets her comeuppance thanks to a slithering accomplice). Dan Monahan is still fun as the often put-upon Pee Wee, but much of the movie really belongs to the enchanting Kaki Hunter as Wendy. She is able to introduce an element of humanity into the proceedings.

People who really love the original "Porky's" will find this to be a much too mild rehash.

Five out of 10.
