Having never been on a summer camp, many of the jokes went over my head.
There's not a lot to Meatballs overall. It's a harmless piece of summer entertainment that is sure to delight you in some way. Ivan Reitman's direction isn't anything flashy and the script (partially written by Harold Ramis) is aimless, but Bill Murray is expectedly amusing in a film that is just fun, for a lack of better wording.
(Full review coming soon)
Bill Murray plays the head counselor at summer camp in the film that has the regular cliches of a summer camp movie...i.e nerd trying to impress girl, guys spying on girls, camp games etc.
Murray was 29 during this movie and was pretty funny here with his mannerisms. Nothing real exciting but a fun film.
