Bill Murray goes to summer camp in Meatballs.

The Blu-ray debut of the 1979 comedy Meatballs, one of Bill Murray’s (Get Low) earliest films, offers fans another opportunity to giggle over their favorite lines (via the prompting by a high-definition presentation).

Directed by Ivan Reitman (No Strings Attached), the film stars Murray as Tripper, the head counselor of Camp North Star, an off-the-wall summer getaway for kids and various misfits. Tripper guides his loveable campers and spirited staff members on a quest for fun in the sun. But this one summer has a couple of unique situations brewing for Tripper in the form of a runaway camper (Chris Makepeace, My Bodyguard), a cute fellow counselor (Kate Lynch, New Year) and an end-of-the-season Olympics competition against a rival camp filled with rich kids.

Lionsgate is also re-issuing a DVD edition of Meatballs for »
