When the teen T&A comedy Porky's scored at the box office in the spring of 1982, Hollywood quickly realized there was an audience largely male, teenage, and horny as hell itching to see guys as clueless as they were willing to humiliate themselves in the quest to get laid. Most of these knockoffs were god-awful. But a few, like the three in a new MGM '80s box set, added heart to the hormonal high jinks.
The Sure Thing (1985, PG-13, 1 hr., 35 mins.) With his brooding-loner act and lightning one-liners, John Cusack was the Bogart of the genre. Here he plays Walter ''Gib” Gibson, a college freshman who travels cross-country to hook up with Nicollette Sheridan. Rob Reiner's Spinal Tap follow-up is surprisingly deep for a flick that rests on the same shelf as Hardbodies and My Tutor. But as Gib would say, ''What the hell's wrong with being stupid once in a while?” B+
