I had been waiting for this transfer for years and was delighted when I saw a Blu-ray Steelbook release, which looks good but even better inside with the "Get It At Porky's" neon sign. Inside the Steelbook there is a booklet about the making of the film and an exclusive interview. But I am still disappointed that the other 2 Porky's films haven't been released on Blu-ray in the UK yet.
The picture transfer is good for a film from the 80's and I was actually pretty happy about the picture, as I wasn't expecting too much. The film is 5 stars, but the sound "transfer" loses a star as it hasn't been updated. It's 1.0 Mono audio, not even 1.0 Mono HD. The audio sounds ok but I don't understand why it hasn't been updated to a 5.1 DTS HD Master audio as most do.
I've always wanted to see some extras from the film, like a making of or cast interviews, so again I was disappointed that all you get is a bloke who had nothing to do with the film talking about teen sex comedies, such as Animal House and American Pie, which is pointless. Plus there is an interview with the director Bob Clark, which is ok and the 3 Porky's film trailers.
Overall the film transfer is decent but the lack of good extras and not updating to HD sound loses a star but still worth owning if you like the film.
