Overview
Bill Murray, star of "What About Bob?" "Scrooged," "Ghostbusters," "Stripes" "Tootsie," and "Caddyshack," is an off-the-wall head counselor in this riotous send-up of summer camp, directed by Ivan Reitman, the producer of "Twins," "National Lampoon's Animal House" and "Ghostbusters."

Murray is Tripper, the most creative activities director in the whole North Woods, who guides a fun-seeking collection of lovable campers and libidinous staff members through the unique pleasures of a coed summer experience.

The wildest summer Camp North Star ever had begins quietly with a runaway camper, an accidental blackout and Tripper's amorous attack on a female counselor. Insanity builds with the most hilarious Parent's Day on record, a scary overnight canoe trip, and the "Olympiad" - a traditional competition between North Star and the rich kids of neighboring Camp Mohawk.

A talented, high-spirited cast, an unlikely romance, and a gang of warm, wicked, wonderful campers are all part of the fireside recipe for MEATBALLS: mix together outrageousness, irreverence and hysterical fun… and take home a comedy smash!
