78: Porky's with Danielle Ayow and Coko Galore
This week, we get to the highest grossing Canadian film for over two decades, 1981's Porky's. Improvisor and producer Coko Galore, joins Becky and guest co-host for a rousing discussion of what may be the most controversial film we've covered so far.
We have a solid chat this week, discussing the concepts of harassment vs. flirting, how to make a raunchy sex comedy that's inclusive, the difference between Miss Honeywell and Samantha, and what moments we genuinely found funny.
As an added bonus, we teach you the Scarborough and Alberta salutes! Join us, for what we believe to be Bob Clark's weirdest contributions to world cinema (and yes, we're including Baby Genius' 2). Porky's is available on iTunes for rent or purchase.
This week's end credit music is the classic "sh boom sh boom" by The Crew Cuts.
