If, by chance, Porky's should prove to be Melvin Simon's swan song in the film industry, it will either be perceived as a thunderously rude exit or a titanic raspberry uttered to audiences everywhere. Full Review

It's as if Russ Meyer had made "Death Wish III" with an adenoidal cast, though it isn't that good. Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
A portion of the audience will be strongly offended by Porky's, just as another portion will find it filthy but fun. However, there is no debating the success of Mr. Clark's casting, for he has assembled a cheerful, likable bunch of actors, most of them unknowns. Full Review

Boston Globe
Unfortunately, except for one raucous routine, this "Animal House" clone is an overblown, over-publicized, overwrought exploitation flick that's about as funny as the first dirty joke my father told me. [09 Apr 1982] Full Review
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
Porky's is another raunchy teenage sex-and-food-fight movie. Full Review
