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>

Great Movie that makes you root for the good guys
19 May 2002 | by andrew71388See all my reviews

I saw this movie one weekend the same as the guy who saw it on showtime or what not and I love this movie since my first viewing. Now every time i get a chance i watch it. The story is full of cliches but it makes it more cheesy fun. Andy (Graham Sack) reluctantly goes to summer camp and is immediately sent to the outcast cabin (The Pigs) There he meets fellow outcasts that help him stand up to the bullys(the wolves) and get the girl Tiffany (Lisa Jakub of Mrs Doubtfire fame ;). I would Recomend this great move to anyone who isnt narrow minded and trashes everything they see! 10/10
