Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Though it may be unpolished and a bit formulaic, this hugely entertaining musical has lots of razzle-dazzle, excellent performances and some terrific musical numbers.

They may not fit in at high school, but here at Camp Ovation they can blossom and shine. At the center of the plot is the extremely talented and outrageously nice Vlad (Daniel Letterle). His roommate is Michael (played by the fantastic Robin de Jesus), a drag queen struggling with his sexuality and the acceptance of the other campers and his parents. Michael's best friend is Ellen (Joanna Chilcoat), who know she's way out of Vlad's league, but can't resist his charms. Jenna (Tiffany Taylor) is another misfit type whose parents are so anxious for her to lose weight that they've wired her jaw shut. Jill (Alana Allen) is the camp seductress and primadonna, and Fritzi (Anna Kendrick), is Jill's intense stalker of a roommate who has an amazing turnaround. The cast made up completely of newcomers that are all extremely talented as actors, singers and dancers. Todd Graff's writing and direction nicely balances the wacky humor and one-liners with a number of powerful emotional moments. The film is thoroughly engaging, and moving, even when it takes a misstep here and there, and there's always one more high-energy production number to entertain if not dazzle you. This is the kind of film that fans of movie musicals those "let's put on a show in the barn" genre, will want to watch over and over again. Luckily with videotapes and DVD's, they'll be able to.
