In terms of sticking to the same formula as the original, "Porky's II: The Next Day" does just that. It picks up immediately after the first film, with one exception - Bob Clark only directed this one, he didn't write the script. I don't know why, but it shows. The script is funny and the film is rather entertaining, as sequels go, but it's missing that same passion and comedic zeal that Bob Clark brought to the original screenplay. However, this sequel still delivers.

This film involves the students of Angel Beach High and their attempts to mount Shakespeare at the school. Their decision to cast a Seminole student in the leads sparks outrage amongst religious groups and even the good old KKK. So, don't think this film is any less racy or controversial than the original, because that would be a mistake. The boys also get to plot some nice revenge against the establishment to which their film owes its livelihood. The entire original cast is back, and they had a larger budget too with the success of the original film, and that shows also.

One funny note is that Bob Clark filmed this at the exact same time he was filming another classic comedy, "A Christmas Story". Look close in the "Romeo & Juliet" fight scene and you'll see a very special cameo from 'the major award'. "Porky's II: The Next Day" is a very good sequel to an even better first film, but I think Bob Clark penning the script would have added a lot. Regardless, it's a very funny, very comical romp and it kept the series going in a very good direction.
