YMMV / Porky's

  • Best Known for the Fanservice/Just Here for Godzilla: Admit it. Some of you watched this for that that one scene with the shower peephole, didn't you?
    • Similarly, some people feel the only decent scene in the second film was the restaurant scene. Specifically the scene where Wendy wears a padded bra with a container full of soup that makes her breasts look huge, and they bounce and "slosh" at every movement. This scene caught the attention of certain online fetish communities.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Some fans ignore all the sequels, but for the most part they're happy to take The Next Day for what it is and ignore Porky's Revenge, for the simple reason that Bob Clark was involved with the former film, but not the latter one. Chances are that Pimpin' Pee Wee would be considered this, if not for the fact that a lot of fans don't even know that it actually exists.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Reverend Flavel dismisses Principal Carter quoting supposedly pornographic Bible verses in their quote-off by saying that the Devil can quote scripture for his purpose. That is, itself, a Shakespeare quote. (The Merchant of Venice Act I, Scene 3)
  • Only the Creator Does It Right: A mild case; while The Next Day, which Bob Clark was still involved in as director and co-writer, is usually seen as an inferior sequel, it's still regarded as being better than Porky's Revenge, which Clark wasn't involved with at all, or Pimpin' Pee Wee, which was produced after his death.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Miss Honeywell is a twenty-something Kim Cattrall.
  • Sequelitis: It's widely agreed that the two sequels weren't nearly as entertaining as the first film in the franchise.
  • Values Dissonance: Balbricker would’ve run the risk of sexual assault changes these days rather the police arrest on Tommy's exhibitionism since he showed his privates to the girls through a peep hole, giving Balbricker a reason to attack. As a matter of fact, a teen showing their privates would’ve been grounds for expulsion, even by 1980s standards… in fact, the idea of a teen being naked in a film these days, even if said teen is portrayed by an adult… yeah, just try to see if anyone would accept that.
