by Walter Chaw The Malloy Brothers' ode to the "makin' it" comedies of the mid-'80s (which reached their apex at the genre's nascence with Bob Clark's coming-of-age smut-fest Porky's) is the flaccid snowboard epic Out Cold. Looking back at Porky's (not that I would look back at Porky's) reveals that its thrills are decidedly modest--but not nearly so modest as those in the disingenuously chaste Out Cold. The film is so much just a collection of puerile (and unfunny) pranks interspersed with extended cock-teases that the effect is akin to watching a Britney Spears concert with a fraternity.
