Rip off

This is a rip off of camp rock made by a bunch of youtubers! It’s a waste of time, so don’t bother even watching the trailer.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

Terrific performances and a solid comic script make a largely formulaic scenario fun to watch. Nadji Jeter, a talented dancer, is charismatic and self-possessed as the streetwise kid stuck in the woods at summer camp. Philip Labes is a standout, bringing a sweetness and precise comic timing to his portrayal of Hunter's sidekick, Jeb. Teens will enjoy the gentle romance and the impressive dance scenes, and parents will appreciate the positive messages about working hard to achieve a goal.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
