Happy campers

Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

Brad Renfro (Wichita) and Dominique Swain (Wendy) star in this re-discovering of innocence comedy that chronicles the chaotic experiences of a very diverse and troubled team of university freshmen who spend their summer as camp counsellors.

Anarchy rules when their tyrannical camp director is accidentally incapacitated, resulting in the counsellors taking it upon themselves to spice up the traditional, monotonous, daily activities with their own irreverent brand of teenage leadership. Through their experiences in guiding the young campers, the teens ultimately learn unforgettable lessons about life, love and pandemonium.

Theatrical report

Happy campers is The breakfast club for the Nintendo generation. Not that I'm making trying to make a comparison between the two, I'm merely drawing a parallel (like saying that A clockwork orange is the Pulp fiction of its day). If you are of the Breakfast club generation and you want to understand the Nintendo generation, Happy campers shows you the same people in effectively the same situation, and the very different way in which they react. It's also occasionally funny.
