Total Nonsense
30 October 2000 | by (MD) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most intellectually-devoid movies I have ever seen. The cover mentions that this movie was made in an attempt to ride the "Meatballs" fad of the '80s. The "characters" include an incoherent drunk "grandpa" camp owner, three horny adolescents who look everywhere for sex (especially for the owner's blond granddaughter, who reminds me of "Blondie"), a homosexual aerobics instructor who has a heart attack after sniffing two poppers and exercising to death, some white guy with an afro and a huge lizard on his shirt (i.e. making fun of the "izod" shirts of the '80s), and too many more to list. This movie is so ridiculous I can't even begin to delineate the absurdities that happen throughout the movie. Not to say that it is bad; I laughed at several scenes because they were so absurd. In one nonsensical scene, after the kids learn that grandpa sold the camp to the evil antagonist, the camera zooms in on a plate of breakfast arranged to make a stupid face (e.g. eggs for eyes, sausage lips, etc.) twice, with cartoon sound effects. It made no sense whatsoever. If you like nonsense, then "Oddballs" is a surefire winner.
