There's a misconception that Meatballs is some sort of zany sex romp of a movie but it couldn't be further from the truth. Instead its a really sincere and modest coming of age PG rated comedy about the difficulties of being a teenage loner. Its also quite an important movie for the fact that it launched several major careers... Ivan Reitman, Harold Raimis and Bill Murray all launched their careers with Meatballs. It's often poignant and always funny. Meatballs is a definite comedy classic!
