Plot follows in the grand tradition of many early rock ‘n’ roll quickies, in which self-righteous upholders of comic morality attempted to stomp out the threat posed by the new primitive music. Replacing Chuck Mitchell’s Porky as the heavy here is Bill Wiley’s bigoted Rev. Bubba Flavel, who makes a crusade out of shutting down the school’s Shakespeare festival due to the lewdness he finds strewn throughout the Bard’s work.
Enlisted in his cause is the ample girls’ gym teacher Miss Balbricker and the local contingent of the Ku Klux Klan, who are each the victims of two of the film’s three ‘big scenes’. Everyone who saw it remembers ‘that scene’ from the original. Here, some of the boys get back at Balbricker by sending a snake up into her toilet.
Director Bob Clark has not allowed success lead him astray into the dreaded realm of good taste.
