Camp | 2003 | PG-13 | - 4.3.5

A group of teenage theater aficionados meet at Camp Ovation during summer vacation and live and learn and love and perform. The plot revolves around a former Broadway songwriter forced to work at the camp after a series of flops, who is inspired by the teenagers' enthusiasm and decides to put together a new production. With Daniel Letterle, Joanna Chilcoat, Robin de Jesus, Sasha Allen and Tiffany Taylor. Directed by Todd Graff. [1:55]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A young woman lies on a bed, invites a young man to join her, they kiss and lie back (we then see the light go off from the outside). A young man kisses a young woman, climbs on top of her and they continue to kiss. A young man and a young woman dance together, he thrusts his hips toward her as a joke, they dance more, and he caresses her and they kiss. A young woman jumps on top of a gay young man and kisses him. A young woman looks at a young man admiringly and passes him a note. A young woman takes a shower and sticks her head out from behind the curtain. A young man stands in front of a gay young man and judging from his reaction he is nude (we see his bare shoulders). A young man takes off his shirt and pants (we see his bare-chest and his boxer shorts) and a young man is shown bare-chested in a couple of scenes: in one scene he lifts his shirt to wipe his face and we see his bare abdomen and chest while a gay young man admires him. Sexual innuendo includes: A gay young man says to another young man "...you go in anybody's drawers you want," a young woman says to a young man "you could be very lucky this summer," and a young gay man flirts with another young man in several scenes. A young man dresses like a woman. Young women wear short tops that reveal bare abdomens, low-cut tops that reveal cleavage, and short shorts that reveal bare legs. A young woman wears an off-the-shoulders dress.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We see a young man (dressed like a woman) lying on the floor while being kicked by several other young men, and see him later with many bruises on his face and a bloody lip. A young woman puts something in another young woman's drink that makes her ill (induces vomiting), and a young woman puts something in another young woman's make-up that makes her skin break out in a rash. A young woman's jaw is wired shut as part of a weight control program. A young woman treats another young woman like a servant. A young woman tosses another young woman down, and a young woman pulls another young woman off stage and we hear crashing behind a curtain. A young woman slaps a young man in the face. Two young women exchange barbs and insults, and two young women argue over a young man. A man yells abusively at a young man and two young women, and a man yells at a young man and gets in his face. A young woman vomits and we hear splats and heaving, a man vomits on a young man and we see the goo and hear him gagging. A young man practices appearing sad in front of a mirror and makes remarks about his cat and mother being dead. A young man tackles another young man and smacks his face as a joke.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
