Makes me miss the '80s
24 May 2000 | by (Moncton, N.B., Canada) – See all my reviews

Oh, to go back when movies like this were put out on a regular basis... As a big fan of early '80s comedies, this one ranks among my all-time favorites. Horny summer camp employees, trying to score with the female counselors, while competing with other staff in "the great war", and at the same time trying to stay out of trouble with the boss... What more do you need in a movie? Something to make you think??? Forget it!!! This one's all about fun & cheap laughs (my favorite kind).
