Tracy K from Cinema Minima sent this description of the film:
A classic tale of ragtag misfit campers versus blueblooded elitist campers, Meatballs (1979, Ivan Reitman) is a perennial summertime favorite. As cool camp counselor Tripper Harrison, Bill Murray delivers one of the all-time great movie monologues, a hilarious detailing of the plight of underdogs everywhere, culminating in the chant “IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER! IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER!” Boy campers pop boners while spying on girl campers, the camper named Spaz really lives up to his nickname, and the plight of the shy and depressed is given the full Hollywood treatment as Chris Makepeace from “My Bodyguard” plays Rudy, who is taken under Tripper’s wing and slowly comes out of his shell. This is what the Summer of Fun is all about, and if you’re a summertime dude or summertime babe, there is no better way to kick off July than to see this cinematic celebration of the sweatiest season.
