Storyline

Ricky is the hottest water-ski instructor around and he has just be rehired by his former employer/camp to whip up attendance. But the camp is in serious financial trouble and the owner of a rival, more popular, camp wants to buy them out. Therefore they will have to engage in a mean, winner-takes-all competition that will settle the row once and for all. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Notable and memorable Jack Nance role

Details of this history are presented in the Jack Nance documentary, YOU DON'T KNOW JACK, which also contains a clip of his performance in MEATBALLS 4.
