Performers, Cast and Crew:
BACHELOR PARTY: Rick (Tom Hanks) is a charming but goofy young guy who is about to marry his upper-class girlfriend, whose parents disapprove of him. When his friends decide to throw a wild and crazy bachelor party, all hell breaks loose. Featuring a cocaine-snorting mule, Japanese businessmen, and a lot of hearty partying.
PCU: In the small, idyllic enclave of Port Chester University, there is an even smaller community of people determined to hold out against the fervent political correctness that has taken over their academic establishment. Known as the Pit, it is the fraternity house that serves as party HQ for those holdouts, who hail, incidentally, from all walks of life; it is also the building to which Tom (Chris Young) has been assigned during his pre-freshman stay at the campus. Jeremy Piven plays Droz, his guide, the head of the frat whose daily activities include throwing meat at a bunch of protesting vegans. But things turn serious (kind of) when the school president hands the frat a bill for $7000 in damages, and the group decides to do the only thing it can: throw a party! Campus peace hangs in the balance as this one night will decide if everyone can put aside their differences and just have a good time. George Clinton and the P-Funk put in an appearance as performers at the party, and David Spade almost steals the show as the uptight, smarmy leader of the rival frat.
PORKY'S: A raunchy, irreverent comedy classic released in the early 80s to set the tone for all other teen flicks of that era, PORKY'S takes a look at the sex lives of a group of teenage boys in 1950s Florida in all their obsessive, unfulfilled glory. Pee Wee, the main character in this group of six Angel Beach high schoolers, is so named for the size of his appendage; nonetheless, he wants nothing more than to lose his virginity. All six spend most of their time devising easy ways to score and spying on coeds in the shower, taking breaks only to insult their large dictator-like teacher, Ms. Ballbricker, and play pranks on each other. They devise a plan to take a trip to a divey strip club in the Everglades called Porky's, where they are sure to get some action; unfortunately, owner Porky doesn't much care for the underage likes of them, and after humiliating them and stealing their money, he kicks them out.
The boys are deflated, but not for long! What follows is one of the most elaborate and uproarious revenge plots ever committed to film, one that cemented this movie's place within the canon of comedy forever. Director Bob Clark culled his own childhood memories to write the film over a period of 15 years, and the personal quality as well as the elements of racism that were characteristic of post-WWII Florida, lend the film an authenticity that rises above the mere sex comedy. It also stars Kim Cattrall, who went on to star as Samantha in SEX AND THE CITY.
