Trivia

Matt Craven plays one of the adults returning to summer camp, where they have such fond memories. Craven also played a CIT (counselor in training) in Meatballs (1979), another film about summer camp. Both films were shot in Canada. See more »

Goofs

During Jack's flashback about his boner, it takes place in the early 70's. Yet his younger self is wearing NHL pajamas that have the Quebec Nordiques logo on them. The Nordiques weren't added to the league until 1979. However the Quebec Nordiques were a team in the WHA (World Hockey Association) as early as 1972 with similar colors. See more »

Poorly Constructed but Enjoyable
31 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot and character development are weak here, but there are enough enjoyable aspects to keep you viewing. The scenery is amazing, the concept of returning to your childhood camp is appealing, and the cast is familiar and good looking. Alan Arkin's role does not appear to be super challenging, but it requires skillful subtlety and he does it well.

Where are these people from, that they would go to camp in Ontario? The other references are American. But Kimberly Williams is wearing a jacket with Canadian flags. No one seems to mention living in Buffalo or Michigan.

What the heck do they actually do for a living? The Paxton character says what he does, but I don't think the others specify. Diane Lane is technically too young, but I guess you are not supposed to know that. Are we to assume that the Camp owner played by Alan Arkin has been single and alone for 43 years? We know so very little about him.

Does someone have to stay at the camp in the off season? Why? Does the camp bring in enough revenue to support a couple year round?

The human dramas are clichéd and lack imagination. But the acting is good all around. I'm sure they had fun filming this one and it shows. There's a really forced plot device involving a black guy. It doesn't make any sense. Why would the guy want to work there in 1972?

Like other reviewers have said...if you went to camp, you will probably relate to the whole experience better than someone who has never been at camp. I envy the characters their past. They were so alive in their summers as kids.
