Watched this a couple of weeks ago on netflix!

 -

An 80's sex comedy, about camp waiters, cooks and counselors having mindless fun, playing pranks and lots of silliness going on as the movie jumps from scene to scene..there's no plot, really.. but it sure was fun to watch.

Starring Michael Lembeck from 'One Day At A Time', a young Dennis Quaid with a buzz cut, Rosanna Arquette, and Fran Drescher.


Camp Oskemo!

Also recognized the cute "Candy" from 'Midnight Madness" [Smile]

Haha, there's a scene where Dennis Quaid leads the boys into the girls' cabin while they are sleeping and uses to flashlight to lift the covers up and get a look at them in their ...delicates. Totally 80s. [Wink]

Anyone else see it?

I recall it as a cheesy summer camp T & A movie... which I think counts as a recommendation!

Had never heard of this before. Great film.

Plenty of raunchy sleeze that every movie should have.

Rowdy summercamp movie with a young Dennis Quaid and Rosanna Arquette, that plays a lot like Meatballs meets Animal House.

Don't let the R-rating (or the previous posts) fool you though : There is no nudity here, except for a quick shot of a B&W skinflick.
The MPAA probably based their rating solely on foul language (which there is plenty of).

Interesting supporting cast that also includes cute Debi Richter (Hot Moves) and David Huddleston (who played Jeff Lebowski,
the rich one whom The Dude took the rug from after the identity mix-up, in The Big Lebowski) as the camp's owner.

Gorp is fairly entertaining if you're in an undemanding mood, but it's certainly not one of the classic summercamp, T&A comedies.

Since early 2016 Gorp is available on both dvd and blu-ray from Kino Lorber, including a writer / producer commentary as an extra !

In an odd coincidence I finally bought a cheap GORP on DVD. I thought I'd give it a re-watch since my first was massively underwhelming. I think Johnny is being diplomatic with the 'undemanding mood' assessment. I felt the same way I did before; all characters are caricatures - you care about none of them. The story is flat and goes nowhere so when the credits roll you just feel glad the mess is over. Almost all the jokes fail consistently. It's just plain bad. It has none of the charm of Meatballs or Animal House at all.
