Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Comment:
At least these older teen boys/young men in medium blue, dark blue and orange shorts. Maybe not all are shiny like the grey ones. Pics from s4e4 “The Team”. Also a man in blue shorts in s4e8. The orange shorts of the blond teen are quite interesting. Is this a boy?

I don’t know all episodes but doubt for much more and better scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating 5).

Rating 2-3 for these brief scenes of older teen boys.

Update 3: Meatballs

meatballs-n2ameatballs-n2b

As announced, some more scenes and pics of this great movie. I think, I have to make one more post, but later.

Pic 1 showing next to the boy in red (non-shiny trunks) a longhaired teen in green shorts at 1h04. Is this a girl? Shorts look shiny. There are more boys, women and young men in green, mainly Adidas shorts but most are not shiny, maybe just one of a young man (high jump scene).

Pic 2 showing a teen boy in beige or maybe white or similar shorts at 1h04. I haven’t noticed other scenes of beige shorts.

Pic 3 showing a young lady in light red, short shorts at around 10 minutes. Bill Murray also in red but I think non-shiny shorts.

Pic 4 a thin, young lady in red Adidas shiny shorts at 17 minutes. But I don’t like her at all. Reminds me of Sleepaway Camp (rating 9).

Rating 5-6 for this scenes. Main entry, rating 8 at

Update 2: Meatballs

meatballs-at36meatballs-at1h21

I now have completely rechecked my DVD. There are much more (shiny) shorts scenes including young women. But mostly young men/ older teen boys. Most colors are red and white. I don’t want too much pics in a single post and will make at least one more update later.

Some very good Adidas shorts (including women), but some aren’t shiny. Also other shorts including jeans shorts. Also few boys in speedos. I think no board shorts.

Pic 1 showing my favourite scene of Rudy at 36 minutes in shiny white 70s style shorts with red boarders. More scenes at the very end (pic 2, a bit wet). He mainly wore jeans shorts.

Pic 2 at 1h21 also showing a boy in red shiny Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) and an older boy in rare, orange Adidas (Handball ?) shorts with dark blue stripes. Brief scene. Also a shirtless older teen boy in dark green Adidas shorts, but probably not shiny.

Pic 3 at 1h17 showing next to 2 older kids in red shorts (is the right one a girl ?) also 2 boys on the left in white and blue shorts. Another spectators also there, dark blue shorts, probably not shiny, another one in red and I think green.

Pic 4 at 17 minutes showing a boy in white shorts (good scenes walking downstairs) and another one on the left in dark blue shorts.

One older teen boy in beige shorts at 1h04 (close up). One older guy wearing sweat pants underneath orange shorts. Also sitting scenes of boys (distance).

As said more pics, including women later. I also found another boy and girl in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 3).

Notable scenes:

4 minutes, 10, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36, 45, 1h03, 1h04, 1h18, 1h21.

Main entry, still rating 8 (but rather 7-8) at

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Comment:
A shirtless boy standing and sitting in light blue shorts. Pic from the trailer. Also other boys in shorts including dark blue, green and white with stripes. And men also in swim shorts with a belt. One boy in shorts with H-style suspenders.

The setting looks modern, but it’s obviously in 1944 as there are also other people in historical swimwear shown. So most likely not of shiny fabric but cotton. (Sorry, I’ve seen that too late).

But the movie looks still quite interesting. But I haven’t seen it completely, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

A woman in I think medium blue 70s shorts (not sure if very shiny) and a man shirtless in shiny red shorts.

Very interest movie, novel by Stephen King. Great actors, props and plot (bedroom blog rating 7). But I prefer younger actors.

So rating 2-3 only.

Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Comment: Next to some young men or older teen boys (also shirtless), there are 2 notable scenes of boys in this 1985 commercial. First, one boy in shiny white Adidas shorts with red stripes (side and rear view when running away after focussing a sunbeam through a lens to the hairy chest of the old man) and later a boy in light green (non-Adidas) shorts.

The white shorts are not splitted at the sides, I think Handball or Volleyball shorts. I think with inner briefs. I never own that one.

There are also other Langnese commercials with young men and young women in shiny shorts, coming soon.

This is maybe the most famous German commercial ever. No movie in the theatres without it and selling ice cream after it before starting the main movie. Nice song Like Ice in the Sunshine. But as usual, rather short scenes. I found it by coincidence.

Rating 8-9.

Comment: I thought, I already had this series. Several kids and teens in swimwear including shiny shorts and shirtless scenes. But many in speedos. At least an older man in light red shorts.

Pic 1 is from ep 11 showing an older boy in light blue shorts. Pics 2+3 are from ep 5 showing a younger and an older boy in dark blue, 70s style shorts. I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more and even better scenes, not sure about girls and women.

Rating 6 for now.

Also for a long time on my bedroom blog, rating 4.
