Why do people hate Porky's Revenge so much?

I thought it was hilarious....and I liked it as much as the other two...but I noticed it was on the IMDB bottom 100...and I guess a DVD of this is out of the question.

I want this DVD as well. I thought it was strange Fox would release a single disc of Porky's 1, then a double feature disc of Porky's 1 and 2. Why not just release Porky's 2 & 3 as the double disc since there was already a single disc of #1? Ah well, we can always hope.

The original release of "Porky's" wasn't 16:9 enhanced. Probably why the re-released it.

Does seem sort of weird that they'd release the first two and not the third, though. It does sort of have a bad reputation, but that doesn't usually prevent other studios from releasing everything in the series. I mean, Paramount put out Friday the Thirteenth Part VIII with all of the others. Or Godfather III. Or Universal put out all three BTTF movies in a single boxed set.

Hmm. Maybe Fox should've gone the boxed set route and forced everyone to buy Part III.

But P3 really wasn't that awful, even though it was lesser of the Porky's flicks.

On a Side note, why haven't they released the other Revenge of the Nerds movies? If they put them on a flipper, like they did to Porky's 1/2 and Revenge of the Nerds 1/2 for $15.00, I am sure many people would buy them. This would also hold true for Meatballs.
