The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve. At the center of the action is camp director Beth, who struggles to keep order while she falls in love with the local astrophysics professor. He is busy trying to save the camp from a deadly piece of NASA's Skylab which is hurtling toward earth. All that, plus: a dangerous waterfall rescue, love triangles, misfits, cool kids, and talking vegetable cans. The questions will all be resolved, of course, at the big talent show at the end of the day. Written by

In 2011, Paul Rudd told Entertainment Weekly that he was literally not sure he ever got paid for this movie - he thinks that because the budget and the production staff were both so incredibly small, they may have just overlooked making out a check for his salary. See more »

I guess a lot of the reviewers are less that 14 years old and think that jokes about lice are just the funniest thing in the universe or maybe they just have the IQ of a rock. This movie was so BADLY over acted and TERRIBLY directed and the script so CHILDISHLY written that the mere watching of it was worse than "train wreck" status. The budget is listed here at approximately 5 million: Cheap enough by 21st century standards. Opening week it brought in $17,481 and did a gross business of $292,102! That pretty much sums up what the theater goers thought of this dreck. They hated it!!! No word of mouth here! So about 48 thousand people actually paid to see this and it died on the vine virtually overnight. There are over 5,000 theaters with over 39,000 screens in the USA. If it had a general release at just 100 screens, with 3 showings a day, the average audience for the weekend was about 50 people per show. That translates to about 20 viewers per showing on Sunday. The producers, investors, and even theater owners lost pot fulls of money on this dog.
