"Gorp" is a 1980 comedy film starring Michael Lembeck and Dennis Quaid, and featuring early acting work of Roseanna Arquette and Fran Drescher in supporting roles. Directed by Joseph Ruben, with both story & screenplay by Jeffrey Konvitz & A. Martin Zweiback, this movie follows in the tradition of the 1978 fraternity comedy film "National Lampoon's Animal House" & the 1979 summer camp comedy film "Meatballs".

Set in a Jewish summer camp, "Gorp" features the kind of physical, sexual, and scatological comedy prevalent in films of this genre, while playing for comedic effect on the class distinctions between the camp's management, the camp counselors, the waiters, and the kitchen staff.
