How do siblings deal with each other in their targets? This is the question tackled in this movie. Blue-collared Mickey drives a New York taxicab since the breakup with his promiscuous ... See full summary »
Towards the beginning, there is a scene when a counselor is explaining the rules to the males (after they were checking out some of the females of the camp). When the counselor is walking slowly, he accidentally hits Jaleel White (Steve Urkel), then the angle switches and you see the counselor in a different position that contradicts him hitting the White with his arm/shoulder.

If it wasn't for nostalgia reasons I wouldn't even mind writing a review for this. "Camp Cucamonga" is a strange example of how a movie displays the period of time when it was filmed. The movie came out in 1990 when still the 80's fashion, music, ideals, etc. were a huge influence. The movie is filled with cheesy jokes, bright colors in every scene, cheesy music, etc.
This is my perfect example of a movie that shouldn't be recycled. I mean, "Camp Cucamonga" should have been destroyed after it's 1990 release. It just doesn't fit in the new millennium. It's not even ultra cheesy by today.
Anyways, when I was a kid I watched it on it's original release date and I recall watching it when it re-runed on cable. I remember that the main "dramatic" situation was surrounded with dumb sub-plots involving a nerd in love with a cute girl, the typical bitchy spoiled blonde girl who couldn't stop her boyfriend from pretending the cute girl, the anti-cool black nerd kid, and the horny male counselor who always tried to hit on Jennifer Aniston (I'd like to know her opinion towards this movie!).
Anyways, this movie was fun and "cool" on it's time. I liked it and I'm not ashamed of admitting that I enjoyed it back in 1990. But objectively, it's a super cheese effort for kids.
"Camp Cucamonga" should only exist in the minds and hearts of people who watched in it the 90's. People who watched it after the 90's are on their right to bash it. The rap song was very catchy though! "Cucamonga, oh yeah, oh yeah, come to camp cucamonga".
By the way, the IMDb movie recommendation is totally absurd. "Sleepaway Camp"? Seriously, have they even watched it?!
