Storyline

Kids' comedy with all the clichés. Six boys (hero, pudgy, dumb, romeo, etc), reluctantly sent to summer camp, are grouped together in a ramshackle hut, and instantly identified as losers and outcasts by the overconfident camp bullies, who target gorgeous Tiffany (Jakub) as their Lothario's girlfriend. They set out to make everyone's life miserable as they impose their authority on the other kids and ineffective counselors alike. Griff, the good-guy hero, of course has a crush on Tiffany, but hasn't a clue how to approach her. Gradually, the nice guys gain the edge over the bullies, by honest endeavor and standing up for themselves - and in doing so, win over the other kids, even Tiffany. Until the bullies frame them and have them expelled. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

A plain old fun movie
17 April 2000 | by (Venice, Ca.) – See all my reviews

Yes, the film is nothing but one huge cliche...boy falls for girl, boy has to defeat bigger boy to get girl, boy's quirky friends help boy accomplish all of this.

However, the movie turns out being what it was supposed to be--fun. In this era of every film trying to make some point or political statement, it's rare that a movie just comes around to make us laugh. Luckily, this movie came around to do just that. While it's made for children, both kids and adults...well, maybe adults, will enjoy it. Like I said before, it's just a fun little movie, and if more people knew about it, it would be sure to become a cult favorite.
