Okay, Bill Murray fans. If you've seen the man sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" at the Wrigley Field season opener and watched him run the bases and slide comically into home plate, you know the guy is still just a little bit nuts. And now his nutty 1979 film "Meatballs" comes to Blu-ray, Digital Download and On Demand for the first time on June 12.
Directed by Ivan Reitman ("Ghostbusters"), the hilarious summer camp adventure stars Oscar nominee Murray (Best Actor in a Leading Role, "Lost in Translation, 2003) in his very first leading role. The film also stars Harvey Atkin (TV’s “Law & Order: SVU”) and Kate Lynch ("New Year"). Featuring a new audio commentary with director Ivan Reitman, "Meatballs" makes its high-definition premiere on June 12th, for the suggested retail price of $14.99. The DVD will also be available for the suggested retail price of $9.98.
Tripper (Murray) is about to have a summer he will never forget. As head counselor at Camp North Star, an off-the-wall summer getaway, Tripper guides his loveable campers and spirited staff members on a quest for fun in the sun. But when the season begins with a runaway camper, an accidental blackout and Tripper's amorous attack on a female counselor, everyone knows that the tales by the fireside will only get more outrageous as the summer goes on.
