Meatballs III: Summer Job is the 1986 third installment in the Meatballs film series, and the first in the series to be rated R.[1] Unlike Meatballs Part II, this film follows Rudy (the main character from the first Meatballs), grown up (played by Patrick Dempsey) and working on a summer job for an angry boss named Mean Gene. Unlike the first two movies, this one is not set at summer camp, but rather at a nearby marina.


When porn star Roxy Doujor is denied entrance into the afterlife, she is given one last chance to help some poor soul on Earth. She finds Rudy Gerner (whose character was the center of the original film as an adolescent) working at a summer river resort. Roxy is given the task of helping Rudy lose his virginity in order to be allowed into the afterlife.
