Campy goings on in Meatballs, minus the clothrs
24 October 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

John Laughlin again proved a piece of eye candy for this R rated version of Meatballs. I really don't need to say much more, but there art some tender moments with young camper Laughlin who falls for a female camp counceller. The title song is one, I can't get out of my head. Yes there are raunchy goings on, and we do have a vixen here that gets it on with a lot of guys, and an older one, from which great dialogue springs doing climaxing: River, mountain, Streaaaam! It seems though talented actor, Laughlin, way better, than was offered here, was typecast, where really, we were blinded to all the good work, this guy can produce. Here it's just a raunchy, dirty, get your clothes off comedy with a few laughs and gags, but really doesn't rise above poor, stereotypical, sex comedy fare, where it wasn't really until Porky's brought the quality level of this ilk, much higher. If you want to get a bit titillated, and be mildly amused, kick your feet up, and watch.
