Audience Reviews for Meatballs III
You have to respect an 80's teen movie about a dead porn star coming as a ghost and helping a total nerd get laid. Featuring hot women and water sports, Meatballs 3 is a sequel worthy of watching along with the original, even if it isn't as good. Patrick Dempsey stars as the total nerd and there is actually a scene where he puts a sausage down his pants to look like he has a bigger penis. I was a fan of the wet T-shirt contest and the lady who won it.
Just barely watchable. Would never want to watch it a second time. Doesn't have much to do with the others.
Yeah this movie is kinda bad, even as far as B-movies go. If the fact that Shannon Tweed is in it doesn't tip you off to that then you never watched Cinemax in the early 90's. However, it has 2 things strongly in its favor. One, it's way better than Meatballs 2. The ghost of a recently deceased porn star giving advice on the ways of lust and love somehow speaks to me more than an alien and that girl from Witch Mountain. Secondly, Patrick Dempsey's character shouts the following: "I wanna get lude in the nude, with the star of the bar." I can't remember lines from good movies but I've remembered that for some 20 years. That should count for something right?
