Plot Outline:

Rudy is a quite, unpopular kid who goes away to summer camp. He is as much as a misfit here as anywhere. Head counselor, Tripper Harrison (Bill Murray), is a fun loving, prankster who befriends Rudy and helps him to see the good things in himself. -- serioussir

Murray is pretty funny here. The rest of the film isn't up to his standards, though.

Probably the screwballsiest of the screwball films that Bill Murray has appeared in. It's kind of like Porky's but not quite as daring. While I admit it's a fun watch, only some of the film works - the rest is kind of lame in my eyes.

Very 70s but there are some great lines in this show. Murray is funny enough to carry the film (as long as you know it's just a silly, goofy comedy and aren't expecting something deeper).
