It's summer once again and kids flock from everywhere to go to Camp Pinewood in Clifton, Maine (originally filmed in Georgia).

Timmy is the shy kid with no self esteem who takes every chance to run away; Tody is the overweight kid who wants to be a comedian; Brian is the poet; Bobby is the athletically gifted one; and Jerry is the slick talking, high dealing city boy from Philadelphia. The camp is lead by the fearless Big Irv. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Jason Bateman in credits??
1 January 2007 | by deanmartin64See all my reviews

Poison Ivy is one of my favorites.I just realized that Jason Bateman is credited with being part of the movie.The fifth credit on the box of the VHS copy, released in 1987.I cannot find any info on why he is not in the movie.Why he is credited?Anyone know why?The funniest thing about this mistake is that everyone seems to be printing the same info over and over to fill space on the web pages.You might notice this quote is just about in everything you might find on Jason Bateman.

"During this period, Bateman also found time to star or co-star in a handful of feature films, such as the 1985 made-for-TV summer-camp comedy Poison Ivy, Teen Wolf, Too, and 1991's Necessary Roughness. However, none of the projects were successful enough to give Bateman a springboard to big screen stardom."
