Meatballs is a hilarious 1979 comedy film that takes viewers on a riotous summer camp adventure. The story revolves around Camp North Star, a misfit summer camp in the woods, and its charismatic but unconventional head counselor, Tripper Harrison, played by Bill Murray in a breakout role. Tripper is known for his wild antics, irreverent humor, and his ability to connect with the campers. He takes an underdog group of campers, including the shy Rudy Gerner, under his wing and transforms them into a spirited team. As they face off against the rich and snobbish kids from the rival Camp Mohawk in various competitions, the underdogs learn valuable life lessons about friendship, teamwork, and self-confidence.
