Meatballs Part II gets a bad rap, but I’m not really sure why.
Following the success of the 1979’s summer camp hit, Meatballs, American International Pictures came out with a more R-rated knockoff called Gorp.
Early Bill Murray films didn’t see him grounded in reality often. Just look at Ghostbusters or Caddyshack. Yet somehow his first significant role, Tripper in Meatballs, saw him at his most down-to-earth for years.
