Morris “Mud” Himmel has a problem. His parents desperately want to send him away to summer camp. He hates going there, and would do anything to get out of it. Talking to his friends, he realizes that they are all facing the same sentence: a boring summer camp. Together with his friends, he hatches a plan to trick all the parents into sending them to one of his own design, which would actually be a parent-free paradise. Blackmailing former drama teacher Dennis Van Welker into helping, they must convince their parents that the camp is genuine, and that they aren’t allowed to visit.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated PG for some mild adolescent language and sensuality
When I go to see movies, I generally go with specific expectations. ‘Space Cowboy’s basic premise, for instance, was not plausible but it provided an enjoyable evening of watching for my wife and I, seeing stars we enjoy having fun doing this movie. If it had been filmed with the seriousness of ‘Schindler’s List’ it would have failed miserably.
‘Camp Nowhere’ was never meant to be anything except a pleasurable distraction. It provides a couple of hours of escape from our everyday lives, giving us a chance to laugh and relax. The film is not high art, or a work of social conscience. It is entertainment – pure and simple. The film has a simple set-up, and lets it imagination run with it. And that is why I enjoyed it.
