A surprisingly original summer camp movie tells the tale of Hardly Basset, a grouch that has taken over 'Camp Bottomout" because of winning a poker game, and he gets help my his daughter Jennifer in order to run is properly. Sadly when the kids arrive they're seperated from the females, but that doesn't stop the boys. They head across river to spy on them when we find out that the girl's camp owner J. Frothingham Skinner plans to buy out the boys camp and turn it into a shopping mall. Will Hardly's grinchy heart grow three sizes, or will he sell of the camp for $300,000? Written by

Well th... the moral of... the moral of the story is, don't sniff airplane glue when you're young, It... It's bad for your memory.
And incidentally I'm having a terrible time with my memory, I cant remember one thing from one second to the next!

Some movies are bad. This one is incredibly bad. In fact, it's almost funny how bad this film is. It tries to be an Airplane- like spoof of summer camps at times and at other times, tries to be a coming of age film for twelve year olds. The film's level of humor though makes it seem like it was aimed at three year olds. In one scene for example, a guy puts on cologne and goes into the woods hoping to attract a babe who's there but attracts a bear instead. To make things worse, the actors are all incredibly amateurish and the low budget is evident in nearly every shot.
