Storyline

Ricky is the hottest water-ski instructor around and he has just be rehired by his former employer/camp to whip up attendance. But the camp is in serious financial trouble and the owner of a rival, more popular, camp wants to buy them out. Therefore they will have to engage in a mean, winner-takes-all competition that will settle the row once and for all. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Trivia

The film was originally entitled "Happy Campers" but just before its scheduled release, the producers changed the name to "Meatballs 4" in an effort to cash in on the popularity of the "Meatballs" series. See more »

Goofs

When the girl with the shotgun tries to shoot the clay pigeon she accidentally shoots the line towing the para sail and the line clearly separates. As the sail into the lake you can see that the cable is still attached to the boat. See more »

A waste of your valued time
21 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

I can't say enough bad things about this heap of garbage. If a movie makes you roll your eyes and say things like, "Ugh, how stupid" every 5 minutes, then you know it's time to toss the bastard in the garbage. And that's what should have happened to this script. It's amazing to think that a studio actually granted this piece of crap.

What makes 'Meatballs 4' really sickening is Corey Feldman's ego maniacal character. Talk about a guy who strokes his ego more than his carrot! Apparently, Ricky is infallible in damn near every water sport and revenge tactic. It never makes much sense, and it infuriates me that so much money was spent and wasted in making this heap of crap.

I understand this was never intended to be part of the Meatballs series, but seriously, somebody should have sued. At least someone would have made some money from this movie! I recommend to stay away from this and rent 'Surf 2' instead. You'll get more laughs, and plus there's a plot to go with it.
