“Porky’s” Bob Clark of “A Christmas Story” fame directed this raucous 1981 Canadian comedy that spawned two sequels. Set in 1954, the film revolves around a group of high school students attempting to lose their virginity. The group heads to a bar outside of town named Porky’s in search of a “night to remember.” Instead, the owner just humiliates them. Then, they plot their revenge. The film was based on several real-life incidents dating back to the 1960s. (“Sex and the City” strumpet Kim Cattrall also is featured in one of her first major films as a hotsy-totsy nicknamed “Lassie” because of her incessant howling during lovemaking.)
