Meatballs is an above average film that benefits solely from the comedic timing of Bill Murray. Playing a rehearsal version of his character form Rushmore, he’s a camp counselor who befriends a young kid (Chris Makepeace, exuding little other than fresh-facedness) who needs support to make it through the summer. Along the way there’s a small tribute to the snobs vs. slobs universe that Animal House crystallized. Our review of Meatballs on Blu-ray follows after the jump.
Opening tomorrow is director Harold Ramis’ new comedy “Year One”. To help promote the film, our partners at Omelete were invited to New York City to interview everyone involved and they sent me. So thanks to them, after the jump you can watch our exclusive video interview with director Harold Ramis.
During the interview, we talked about how the movie got put together, what’s on the DVD/Blu-ray, the massive sets that were built, what Bible story had to be cut due to budget, and, of course, I asked about “Ghostbusters 3″. It’s a great interview so take a look:
This Friday, director Harold Ramis’ new comedy “Year One” hits theatres. So to help promote the film, I spent the past two days in New York City as a reporter for our partner website Omelete. In the coming days I’ll be posting the full interviews, but with all the talk about another “Ghostbusters” movie floating around the Internet, I figured I should post what he told me right now.
The highlight: if the script for “Ghostbusters 3″ turns out as good as everyone hopes, they’re all in. Even Bill Murray!
