Did You Know?

In a December 2016 New York Times essay that Anna Kendrick wrote about the experience of making Camp, she said that "people have either never heard of it, or they want to tell me that it changed their life, no matter how inappropriate the circumstances."See more »
Continuity: Following the cutting of Jenna's jaw wires, she should still have had the anchors for them on her teeth. Yet when she sings there are no anchors.See more »
[first lines]
[scene opens on Dee, Shaun and Company singing "How Shall I See You Through My Tears"]
[as singing continues, scene shifts to Vlad in his bedroom]
Vlad:To all the critics out there, I know they're gonna review this, and I know they're gonna try to knock me - is it OK if I say this to the camera, Amber? - Okay. I only am who I am 'cause I was born that way. I have a gift, and I'm trying not to be selfish about it, but to use it. Okay? If you're gonna knock me for that, that's your problem. Jealousy will get you nowhere. And I'm gonna keep rockin' on.
[scene returns to singing cast, then shifts to Ellen's bathroom]
Ellen's Brother:Ellen, what's the matter with you? Don't tell Mom I'm taking you to your stupid junior prom.
Ellen:[in shower] Get out of here!
Ellen's Brother:Your brother - how gross is that! Come on!
Ellen:They don't know you're my brother. Please Ben you have to - I'll pay you.
Ellen's Brother:Find someone who's not related to you. Loser.

Thanks Todd Graff, 29 July 2003
Author: Allen-27 from Los Angeles

Does Stephen Trask (HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH) ever write a note of bad music?

This is a wonderful movie. Admittedly, the pace is not perfection. But the music is great, the jokes are funny and most importantly it portrays a specific milieu. And movies that bring the audience into a milieu they might not know exists are almost always interesting. I've seen this movie once and I'll see it again.

Ignore the critics who want to tell you what the movie isn't and what it should be. They'll only keep you from enjoying a good movie. Todd Graff has something to say. This is his movie and it works. One magazine reviewer noted that the kids in this movie emerge as full-blown professionals. Well -- they are! Most of these kids have never done anything before. That's part of what is being said here. There's all this talent that no one has ever seen. There are kids who are this good. Todd Graff found them.
