Meatballs

WHEN THIS LOT GO BACK TO NATURE, NATURE RUNS FOR ITS LIFE.

Camp North Star may not be as fancy as certain other summer campsā€¦ but head counsellor Tripper Harrison (Bill Murray) and his staff make sure that the kids have the time of their lives. The fact that this harmless comedy was a huge hit in its day may come as a surprise to anyone watching it today. An episodic affair with various (unfunny) pranks, the movie tries to instill a sense of nostalgia, but is now only relevant as the first collaboration between Ivan Reitman and Murray.

1979-Canada. 92 min. Color. Directed byĀ Ivan Reitman. Screenplay: Harold Ramis, Daniel Goldberg, Janis Allen, Len Blum. Cast: Bill Murray (Tripper Harrison), Harvey Atkin (Morty Melnick), Kate Lynch (Roxanne), Russ Banham, Chris Makepeace, Kristine DeBell.Ā 

Trivia: Followed by three sequels, starting with Meatballs Part II (1984).
