Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (7):

Zombies and Sasquatch for counselors? Escalating pranks between campers? No required activities and even fewer rules? Camp Lakebottom is little more than an adventurous kid's dream vacation spot, where stinky underwear comes to life and sea monsters lurk in the lake. Of course, the next best thing to being there is watching the mayhem unfold in this fast-paced series that makes health code violations and safety oversights all kinds of funny.

Given that the show gives a mostly false impression of summer camp life, it's fairly obvious that your kids should be old enough to understand what's contrived about the story. Happily, though, this age group should also be able to pick up on the subtle messages in some of the monsters' surprisingly sweet personalities, which are good reminders against judging books (and people) by their covers.
