Storyline

Kids' comedy with all the clichés. Six boys (hero, pudgy, dumb, romeo, etc), reluctantly sent to summer camp, are grouped together in a ramshackle hut, and instantly identified as losers and outcasts by the overconfident camp bullies, who target gorgeous Tiffany (Jakub) as their Lothario's girlfriend. They set out to make everyone's life miserable as they impose their authority on the other kids and ineffective counselors alike. Andy, the good-guy hero, of course has a crush on Tiffany, but hasn't a clue how to approach her. Gradually, the nice guys gain the edge over the bullies, by honest endeavor and standing up for themselves - and in doing so, win over the other kids, even Tiffany. Until the bullies frame them and have them expelled. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Brilliant
13 October 2006 | by puddy_44See all my reviews

This movie is on along the same lines as Thrashin', and Camp Nowhere, absolutely brilliant. Yes Prodution value is relatively terrible, the storyline is what some would call lame or just plain terrble, but that doesn't matter. What matters is the fact that this movie is awesome. Anyone who is a fan of cheezy movies of the nineties, this is for you, clichés run rampant, heroes are forged by trials of fire, and overly elaborate pranks are pulled, and did i mention there is a heroic waterskiing scene. If you ever get a chance to watch this movie you will be lucky beyond measure, its a treat for all intelligent human beings.
