MEATBALLS PART II (1984)
Five years after the original MEATBALLS this happened. There's a lot of shitty things about this movie. Firstly, this is a teen sex comedy with no boobs and really no sex at all! A god-damned PG-rated romp full of mostly ugly people. There's an E.T.-ripoff alien in this for no reason at all and no one seems all that surprised by him and his magical powers. Bill Murray is replaced by Richard Mulligan who I recall from that show SOAP which he was good on but he's no Bill Murray. In addition to him you get a lot of familiar faces including Pee Wee Herman as the bus driver, Elayne Boosler, John Larroquette as a gay military fellow and the main gal(also one of the few attractive humans in this), Kim Richards, who was in that fine TV-movie DEVIL DOG: THE HOUND OF HELL. Also of note is one scene where our campers have a showing of the zombie flick SHOCK WAVES which is a much better PG movie which contains arguably more laughs.
