"...A kids-on-their-own comedy with a message..."
A warm and very funny movie about teens who bribe an out-of-work drama teacher to pose as the owner/operator of a defunct summer camp so the kids can make their own rules. When suspicious parents inquire, the teacher and the kids hold a "Parents Day" to assuage their doubts.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment:
At the end of each school year young Morris "Mud" Himmel and his friends are unceremoniously packed off by their parents to summer camps that specialize in computer programming, military training, or calorie counting. However, this summer Morris and his clever cohorts have determined to create their own vacation haven. And with help from out-of-work high school drama teacher Dennis Van Welker (Christopher Lloyd) -- who passes himself off to each of the kids' parents as the owner of different phony theme camps -- the kids fabricate an elaborate scheme to take control of their summer. With no counselors, no rules or parental supervision, calamity prevails as the teens turn a rented group of dilapidated cabins near a leech-filled lake into the wildest, video game-filled, junk food eating and unencumbered summer camp a parent would never allow his kids to attend; in short -- the best camp in the world.
It's summertime, and high time for summer camp of four disgruntled kids made so blue by their neurotic parents expectations ranging from military camp to fat camp. So these saplin's band together, and with the help of one of those bursting with self-discovery you-gotta-believe-in-yourself type o' adult figures, the youth of America are saved and swinging high inside the sweet chariot of life.
