Morris "Mud" Himmel has a problem. His parents desperately want to send him away to summer camp. He hates going to summer camp, and would do anything to get out of it. Talking to his friends, he realises that they are all facing the same sentence: a boring summer camp. Together with his friends, he hatches a plan to trick all the parents into sending them to a camp of his own design, which would actually be a parent-free paradise. Blackmailing former drama teacher Dennis Van Welker into helping, they must convince the parents that the camp is genuine, and that they aren't allowed to visit...Written by

By a strange coincidence two actors who appear in this film, Alison Mack and Andrew Keegan, would later quit acting to join religious cults See more »
When Zack (Andrew Keegan) tries to buy beer at Howie's grocery store with his fake ID, he's told by the clerk that the drinking age is 19. Ohio was the last state in the U.S. to have a drinking age of 19 when it was raised to 21 in 1987 See more »
So I don't get it, who made those teepees and painted that weird bus?
Back in the 60's, some hippies came here and turned the place into a commune. You know, sex, and drugs, and debauchery.
Dennis Van Welker:
Knew I'd been here before.
You mean you did that stuff here?
Dennis Van Welker:
No... not *here*.

This is a fantastic movie. I first saw it at 20 years old and remembered all the fun things I did as a teenager. This movie makes you want to reclaim your lost youth. Why couldn't they have cool stuff like that when I was their age?
After Dark Angel was canceled by Fox, I checked this web site to see what else Jessica Alba had starred in. I was surprised to find out that this was Jessica's first movie. Way cool! She has only one or two lines, but she does pop up plenty of times and adds plenty of atmosphere to the film.
A good one to watch with the family, but make sure that your kids don't get any ideas. ;)
