Trivia

Marvin Schector (John Ratzenberger) claims that Cucamonga is Apache for "enthusiasm", Cheyenne for "no monkey business", Navaho for "camp spirit", Hopi for "hospitality", Comanche for "pleasant dreams", Mohawk for "nutrition", Paiute for "teamwork", Shoshone for "it's not how you play the game, it's whether you win or lose", and Shawnee for "appreciation". In reality, Cucamonga derives its name from a Native American word meaning "sandy place". See more »

Goofs

Towards the beginning, there is a scene when a counselor is explaining the rules to the males (after they were checking out some of the females of the camp). When the counselor is walking slowly, he accidentally hits Jaleel White (Steve Urkel), then the angle switches and you see the counselor in a different position that contradicts him hitting the White with his arm/shoulder.

Quotes

Ava Schector: Lindsey! Why aren't you in the bunk?

The haven for late 80s-early 90s child sitcom stars
25 June 2000 | by Cyprus386See all my reviews

Of course, some producers just had to make a movie where all the child stars could gather and congregate. Well, they managed to rope in Candace Cameron (DJ Tanner, "Full House"), Danica McKellar (Winnie, "The Wonder Years"), Jaleel White (Urkel-need I say more?), and Josh Saviano (Paul, "The Wonder Years), whom I might add wallowed in his infatuation with Danica's character the whole movie...isn't this just because the producers knew them from "The Wonder Years" and decided to pair them up? Wouldn't Kevin Arnold be jealous? It was different seeing Winnie be bad, Urkel have 20-20 vision, DJ be a brat, Paul be not so different. Of course, I can't not mention Ava, or as we all know her, Rachel Green. Yes, Ava was played by a then-unknown Jennifer Aniston. Not her worst performance, as the same for everyone. Now, most have them have retreated into child star post-sitcom fade, having all been scraped to the "Where Are They Now?" dustpan, but it's better that they faded for the most part, rather than having to create another summer camp haven for them.
