This ode to summer camp is a true Canadian classic and features Bill Murray in his first starring role. He plays Tripper, a prankster and a flirt who can’t help teasing his boss and the counsellors at the nearby rich kids’ camp.
Everyone, including Tripper, is sick and tired of perennially losing the Camp Olympics. It’s only by encouraging all campers to try their hardest, including young Rudy (Makepeace), who has self-esteem issues, that Tripper and his troops can hope to emerge triumphant.
I was ecstatic to see “Spaz” from Meatballs. It was truly an amazing experience.
