TRN Up All Night: Meatballs!

We’re back on another fabulous Friday night to binge watch a couple more classic movies.  Well, classic in the sense that they are from a previous generation.  Maybe that’s too harsh.  Bill Murray is in the first one so I guess it does qualify as a classic.  Anyway, tonight it’s a Meatballs double feature, as we’re presenting Meatballs and Meatballs 3.  Why no Meatballs 2 you ask?  Because it’s not free on YouTube.  Is that a simple enough answer for you?  I hope so because it’s all I’ve got.

Anyway, in Meatballs, Tripper (Bill Murray) is the head counselor at a budget summer camp called Camp Northstar. In truth, he’s young at heart and only marginally more mature than the campers themselves. Tripper befriends Rudy (Chris Makepeace), a loner camper who has trouble fitting in. As Tripper inspires his young charges to defeat rival Camp Mohawk in the annual Olympiad competition, Rudy plays matchmaker between Tripper and Roxanne (Kate Lynch), a female counselor at Northstar.

And Meatballs 3 features a porno queen (Sally Kellerman) who died on the job tries to enter heaven by helping a summer-camp nerd (Patrick Dempsey) meet girls.  How’s that for high brow entertainment?!?  So grab your favorite snacks and your favorite place on the couch, and lets get started!
