Movie Recommendation of the Week: Meatballs

I know for a fact that I’ve mentioned the character Meathead on this site before.   In fact I know I did in an article about an obscure alien we liked.   Hell I think I’ve even recommended the movie Meatballs II before.   But I never took a step back and recommended the original.

And for anyone who grew up in the late 60s and 70s, they can probably appreciate this movie as one of the classics.    It is an Ivan Reitman film and pretty much got Bill Murray’s film career off the ground.   There’s actually a plot out there that’s only one sentence that I happen to enjoy:  “Wacky hijinks of counselors and campers at a less-than-average summer camp.”   That about sums it up.

Put broadly, it’s a great summer camp movie and really one of the first of its kind.   It explores all that funny crap you see at summer camps like sex, lakes, competition, friends, ridiculous music, pranks, and all that other fun stuff.   It’s a must see.

Trailer after the jump…..


The music in this movie alone is worth a view.
