Incredible!
20 August 2000 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

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.
