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 funny, but sometimes depressing film
19 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

I love this movie. It has everything a summer camp movie should have. It's a shame that it's been pretty much forgotten in Hollywood, not because it's a masterpiece (which it is not), but because it's a lot of fun to watch. It's also depressing. It reminds us of the fun that we never had with our friends as kids. Plus, no one in this film has ever made much of themselves in Hollywood, except for a couple of them. I would tell anyone to watch this movie. Though many critics say its trash, it's actually a pretty decent film.

7/10
