    I remmber seeing the adverts for this and thought "this is just a high school musical ripoff".

    You know what would have made this movie GREAT!? A crossover between Camp Rock and Friday the 13th! Just have it set at Camp Crystal Lake!

    Even as an 11 year old I thought this movie was lame, honestly. (I liked Camp Rock 2, but only because it had non-diegetic musical numbers and I love those)

    I remember watching this when it premiered. I was 11, and my older sister was genuinely enjoying it. But then I pointed out that the Jonas Brothers didn’t even have a drummer during a performance where you CLEARLY can hear drums. Then we just laughed and made fun of it the rest of the time.
    Truly a great movie for family bonding.

    I used to enjoy this one as a kid, but today... Yeah it's a terrible movie. I've seen worst, but it still really bad. Rating: 3.0

    I went on a school trip to a camp and they said that on the island across from us is were they filmed camp rock like it was a selling point.

    I just suddenly realised this now, this movie is essentially a disneyfied watered down musical version of Mean Girls.

    Jonas Brothers should stick to the music. Their acting is well........not a particular strength of theirs.

    0:40 Everything is awkward at the start 0:58 what was the point of that? 2:40 no time for that 3:53 what reality is this in? 4:04 orignal though 4:34 needs to be some consequences 5:13 is that painful 5:57 dumb & dated

    It's my favorite thing when he calls a celebrity that person who played this character. Like that is Demi fricking Lavato and he calls her "the girl who played the main character" I'm not even being sarcastic or anything that always make me laugh

    Have you seen Disney Channel's Zombies? It was so bad, and it followed all the same story beats as this movie did, or at least it does according to your hilarious review. You should totally review Zombies.

    First I can't help but snicker at the name "Mitchy". Thanks Gaim.
    I adored this film as a kid....I'm not proud of it but I did. But it's so calming to see it torn to shreds.

    Anyone who would name their kid Mitchy is evil

      The character name is actually Michelle. Disney has this thing where female characters are known by masculine nicknames: Good Luck Charlie, Sonny With A Chance, etc. Yet another trope.

    You take the music away from the context of the film, and some of the songs are pretty good.

    The only reason this movie was so popular was because it was coming off the success of High School Musical.

    This movie is my guilty pleasure, let me just say, it's not a clichê when it's your first time watching that clichê so i don't care :v (But i know it's bad)

      Wait, how old were you when you saw this movie?

    • Ren Yuzu
      Ren Yuzu 7 months ago

      Vits Vicente Torres Still not a clichê for that person by the time he watched it, when you're a child and never saw other things before it, ok you grow up and realize it has been done countless times, but before that, its not a cliche for you, it's the only thing you saw using that formula. Also my first comment wasn't supposed to be taken that serious, so chill ^^ (i'm starting to repeat myself, that means you're missing something :v)

    • Vits Vicente Torres
      Vits Vicente Torres 7 months ago

      When someone doesn't realize that something is a cliché because they haven't seen it before, then they most likely need to see more movies. Specially with a movie like CAMP ROCK that has so many.

    • Ren Yuzu
      Ren Yuzu 7 months ago

      Vits Vicente Torres If i didn't saw the first movie that did the clichê like high school musical for example, but watched Camp Rock First, so Camp rock was the first movie that I SAW doing it, so it's not a clichê for me.

    • Vits Vicente Torres
      Vits Vicente Torres 7 months ago

      It wouldn't be a cliché if it had been the first movie to do the cliché.

    Granted the Jonas Brothers may not be good in THIS movie, but they got soooooo much better. Just watch their TV series, they are incredibly comedic performers! I'm not gonna pretend they're gonna win an Oscar or anything, but they do really well!

    I really didn't like was when you first see the heroine wake up in bed, you can actually see make up on her face. Did she really go to sleep and wake up wearing lip gloss?? Actors wear make up but it's supposed to be unnoticeable in scenes like that.

    Good looking girls all with boobs and looking good in what ever they were wearing. Back when I was that age I would have happily watched this film without a second thought.
    Literally, that would have been the only 'one' thought in my head all the way though.
    I wasn't what you would have called a "complex person" back then.

    Looking back, yeah, this movie sucked, but what can I say? I've got a soft spot for it. When I was a kid, the Jonas Brothers were my favorite band. I ended up with Camp Rock bedding, posters, shirts, etc.. It kinda hurts seeing Doug tear this movie apart because it's so nostalgic to me, but he's right. I never noticed how cliche it all was at the time. Still never saw the sequel, though.

    The only thing good about this this movie is the songs, they at least aren’t that bad, that’s the only thing I remember about this movie and plus I’m a huge Demi lovato fan this was the first thing I saw her in.
