Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Isn't a very accomplished storytelling effort, wandering blindly around pranks and melodrama as it fights to find a higher purpose beyond being just another horndog teen feature."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"a low-budget celebration of filth"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Not often you get a "Racism is bad!" message inside a "Misogyny is good!" film."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Porky's has a good-natured and nimble view of its sex-starved and wayward youth."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"a trend-setting comedy that introduced new lows (or highs, depending on your point of view) in tasteless jokes and frank sexuality to the teen genre"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Bob Clark's teen sex comedy carries a stamp of social satrie that is timeless."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Still, the shower scene is pretty damn funny."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"Juvenile and trashy. Not in a good way."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Nuff said"
‑ Kevin Fiddler, Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)
"Manages to fail on almost every possible level."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"helped solidify the teen sex comedy and spawned dozens of imitations"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Porky's sure ain't high art, but if accepted at the level of lightweight locker-room humor, it's fun."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"While Porky's may have spawned hundreds, if not thousands, of imitators, it's having trouble keeping up with the barriers it broke more than two decades ago."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Very dated now, but still good for a giggle"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
