Reckless: The mission can't wait. In eight years we'll be done here. You wanna be legends then, or you wanna be a legend now?
Fetus: I wanna play now, Reckless. We're at camp, but I can't tell.
Reckless: Turtles, let's fight. They do not paint over the name of a legend. This moment's historic. We gotta do something to remember it. One day we'll be 80, and have cancer. You know what causes cancer? Regret. It eats you up. It makes you small.

An interesting, yet flawed, summer camp movie
9 September 2012 | by (Bermuda) – See all my reviews

While this is one of those feel good movies involving young children, this is a more earnest and, to a vast extent, less cliché, than other movies of its kind. The dialog is less refined, and just something that would be expected to be uttered by kids in real life.

The performances by the kids were adequate. I didn't feel that one stood out more than the other, as it seemed that the director was content to let the story take the main stage. Even though the movie's essentially about Fetus and his epiphanies at the summer camp it didn't really focus on Fetus all the time. Rather, it meandered away from him, and I feel that this is where a flaw occurred. There was no proper focus so I couldn't really connect with Fetus at times. Thankfully, his attraction towards Sundae was not one of those moments, though sadly it wasn't properly developed. Some of the dialog was muffled and didn't make sense in tying it to the story.

Having said that Summerhood is still a movie worth watching. There are some laugh aloud moments, some poignant moments, and some moments that will make you reflect about your best summer, or your first kiss, or when life really began for you. Don't let this movie pass you by.
