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

This movie was based on Camp Modin (Belgrade, Maine), the summer camp, to which David Wain went. See more »

When we first started hanging out together, this morning, we were just friends; but things change, and I've fallen in love with you. I just know that if you gave me a chance, I could make you feel so good. So I am coming, not as your buddy, and not as a co-counselor, but for the first time as a man - a man who loves a woman, and who wants to hold her and provide for her and, yes, have sex with her; but no, seriously, Katie, I love the way you laugh and I love the way your hair smells and I love...

I can only assume the high ratings and stellar reviews for this film were bought and paid for. I registered for an account for the sole purpose to warn others what a complete waste of time this movie was. I tuned in because the cast contained so many actors and actresses I have enjoyed in other roles and expected at least a modicum humor.
Ugh... no. I'm sure someone wrote a script for this film. I think it was flushed out on piece of bathroom tissue that was then heavily used. Some of the performances seemed strained in a how-did-I-get-myself-into-this manner. The multiple sub-plots were weak and the idea that this movie was a spoof of past camp films, like "Meatballs" et. al. is laughable. About the only laugh I got out of the film.
I tried to like it, but it as the credits started rolling I realized no amount of replay was going to uncover a missed gem of hilarity. Please stay away.
