Very surprising movie!, 8 October 2001
Author: Mario77 from Seattle

I bought this film as a double feature dvd and thought it would be good for a few laughs. I put it on while friends were over ( thinking we would skip through it) and we were amazed by the clever opening credits that looked kind of like something from Terry Gilliam. The opening scene is quite surreal. It opens in a cool New York apartment shared by 2 60's swingers. One of them a Nurse and the other a fashion model who also serves as our narrator. They are in bunk beds smoking and using the coolest hanging ashtrays you'll ever see. The model tells of the dangerous fates they did not know that were ahead of them and the music in the scene is dark and creepy and amazingly playing on the models record player. The nurse asks the model to change the record, and she puts on some kind of marching music. I cannot give this scene justice, you must see it for yourself. What really surprised us was the ending. The Battle for Camp Sunshine is a true epic on film making.The epic military scenes and touching ending make this a classic horror-nudist-war movie almost anyone could enjoy. The nudity could hardly offend anyone, there is very little of it. The look of the actors and the excellent cinematography make this great viewing if you are in the mood for something like this. And you must be if you are reading this comment. I say go see it!
