Did You Know?

When Charles Winthrop III (Dalton O'Dell) arrives at camp, his limousine glides up to the camera with a tight, full-screen shot of the double-M hood ornament. This is the logo for a relatively obscure and very expensive car, originally (1909) known as a Maybach Motorenbau, a brand bought by Daimler-Benz, and, in the last few years before its 2012 demise, known as a Mercedes-Maybach.See more »

Feel good movie that takes you back to your youth., 5 December 2011
Author: jbailey618 from Oregon, United States

I definitely recommend this movie for your whole family. While the whole summer camp troubled youth bit has been done 100 times, this is a great one that will put a smile on your face and take you back to a summer in your childhood when you went to camp and grew as a young man or woman and got the first taste of being away from home. I'm not going to even comment on the technicalities of movie making, because they don't matter one bit. The only thing that matters is that you smile, laugh, and even maybe tear up just a bit watching this movie.

Grab your kids, make some popcorn, and just relax and enjoy this cool movie.
