Untitled[edit]

POTENTIAL VANDALISM?? In the "Sequels" section: "It was also made in Israel"..Huh??

Name of a song?[edit]

Anyone know the name of the song the marching band plays at the end of the film?

The one you're thinking of is probably The Washington Post by John Philip Sousa. --FudgeRusket 09:35, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Remake[edit]

Does anyone have any news on the remake? --Richy 16:42, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Does anyone know what happened to the Howard Stern remake of Porky's the original link to the Wikipedia article for the remake version now points to this article and IMDB has removed any references to the remake altogether. 141.150.119.252 05:24, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Porky's.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Porky's.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Highest Grossing Canadian-Produced film?[edit]

That sounds pretty weasely. Would it even qualify for CANCON (should a movie regulation exist)? --69.71.73.130 (talk) 17:54, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

I assume you were not going to the movies in the 1980s?
Back in the 80s, we all knew that Porky's was the biggest Canadian movie ever, even though it was set in the States. I didn't see it personally; I was post-high school.
Bob Clark was resident here and had made Black Christmas which was loved and respected. When this movie came out, people were surprised to read that Clark was actually from the US. That had not been mentioned much before. Varlaam (talk) 18:56, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
I was in high school with this film's composer. That was in Toronto. Varlaam (talk)
I've removed the contradictory statement and the second comment about Resident Evil: Aftermath due to the confusion as to its specific criteria for highest grossing Canadian film. It a joint Canadian and German co-production. While it may be higher grossing; it is not purely Canadian which detracts from the claim and success of Porky's. Also as long as we are discussing the matter; Porky's could actually be in third place, but due to a lack of information about Bon Cop, Bad Cop is not easily found and the mere note that Resident Evil surpassed Porky's does not automatically assume it holds second place in hard fact. Top grossing films use poor math as is and are not tracked well either; the current comment for Bon Cop, Bad Cop has a clear note about its contested position and states the last hard fact about its status.

Resident Evil: Afterlife[edit]

I have a source that says that "The Ontario Media Development Corporation announced yesterday that Resident Evil: Afterlife is now the most successful production in Canadian feature film history, with a worldwide box office of $280 million. It surpasses a mark set in 1982 by the long-reigning teen comedy Porky's."

Nightclub?[edit]

Porky's is a nightclub? I thought it was a brothel.
