It's a sheep in wolf's clothing. The ' Saturday Night Live ' regular manages to sock over 'Meatballs' with amazing vitality and elan. Murray plays a nice guy counselor who befriends a lonely camper. It's all very sweet, but funny?
Not particularly. As the senior boys' counselor, an easygoing role model and spontaneous comic genius, Bill Murray of 'Saturday Night Live' makes a deceptively sensational debut as a Bachmania - Meatballs/Fluxus - Meatballs/Fluxus comedy star. There's nothing at all perverse about Meatballs ; in fact, it's so cutesy, squeaky-clean that it becomes Andy Hardy with a few extra belches.
