Blu-ray ($14.99)

Available for the first time on Blu-ray, this 1979 summer-camp comedy marked the movie-debut breakout of “Saturday Night Live” star Bill Murray, who plays a merry-prankster senior counselor leading his fellow staffers on a quest for fun in the sun. Low-budget and filmed on location at Canadian summer camp, it’s become an iconic entry in Murray’s comedic resume, as well as that of director Ivan Reitman, who’d go on to more (and more expensive) collaborations with the actor in “Stripes” and two “Ghostbuster” hits.
