Reviews

It's summer at Camp Bleeding Dove and the year's batch of teenage residents are engaged in the traditional camp activities, both wholesome and libidinous. But watchful camp director Oberon (Peter Stormare) is soon injured in a freak accident and the counsellors are left to run the show themselves. This means that the summer fun is about to take off in a new and wholly unpredictable direction. Starring Brad Renfro ('Bully') and Dominique Swain ('Lolita'), 'Happy Campers' marks the directorial debut of 'Heathers' screenwriter Daniel Waters.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steampunk TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 May 2008
Format: DVD
This would be a cute comedy about a bunch of likable characters, except that it's not very cute, not very funny, and the characters aren't very likable.

I felt that the movie was trying hard to be a hilarious teen comedy, while at the same time being serious about teen sexual angst and unrequited love. The result was that it fell between the two, and fell pretty hard, failing miserably at both.

People who come to this movie expecting some sort of laugh-a-minute romp will be disappointed by the occasional long attempts at seriousness, and will find themselves reaching for the fast-forward button.

Those who are looking for a semi-serious teen movie will just be turned off by the contrived and ludicrous situations created in an attempt at comedy.

Really, it's pretty bad. Unlike a previous reviewer, it is no mystery to me why this movie isn't better known.

It's a scandal that this film isn't better known. The humour might be a little off-beat, but many times it's side-splittingly funny. All the lead characters are well-played, but Dominique Swain (Wendy) and Peter Stormare (Oberon - that's BIG CHIEF Oberon!) are outstanding. A very original and entertaining film, and well worth repeat viewings.

This film from the creator of Heathers, is a fantastic mixture of teen movie cheese, anarchy, and genuinly intresting charectors.
Six collage councellors find themselves in charge of a camp full of kids after the camps dean is struck by lightning. The kids run wild without guidelines as do the councellors sexual desires.
A fun film to watch, recommended!

Awakening Passions at Camp Bleeding Dove 22 Jun. 2002
By interested_observer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Happy Campers" examines a group of summer campers at Camp Bleeding Dove, somewhere near the Carolinas.
The focus of the film is found in the relationships between seven camp counselors. Wichita (played by Brad Renfro) wants to get through the summer by being practical and honest with the campers and without entanglements from the other counselors. Wendy (Dominique Swain) wants a more romantic and ideal environment, which includes having an enduring relationship with Brad. The other counselors eye each other, with a couple looking extra hard at Brad.
The kids have their traditional issues: homesickness, bee-stings, epileptic fits, crushes, ogling, lampooning the other sex, reading porn magazines, and the like.
I suppose the "R" rating comes from a few mild sex scenes, displays of condoms, and a bit of quasi-lesbian foreplay. After satirizing camp life, the immanent return to the outside world triggers some political correctness. [Though having the one gay counselor tell the possibly gay-to-be kid to wait until he is 18 before trying anything is not necessarily consistent with what the other kids get to hear.]
The counselors' acting is pretty good. The standouts are Brad Renfro, Dominique Swain, and Justin Long (of "Jeepers Creepers"; here he is a geeky counselor with a hopeless crush on Wendy and is the buff leader of the kids' water condom-balloon attack on most of the other counselors).
There is the usual hokiness (like an unexpected hurricane), smarmy emerging sexuality, and happy-enough ending. The DVD had no commentary track or behind-the-scenes materials. "Happy Campers" has a few interesting characters and segments in a familiar setting.

Great sleeper hit! WATCH This movie ASAP 14 Nov. 2003
By John La Rocca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Today, teen comedies involve a lot crude humor and the kids just never learn anything. "Happy Campers" has BOTH, and mixes them well which will satisfy a wide audience. Why I never saw this movie get a national release is beyond me. This movie was ten times better then American Pie's or any of the other lousy and souless teen movies.
What was written in this movie growing up I lived through. One character in the movie goes off on the same feelings I once had.
This story really taps into what kids go through today. This is a must watch folks, sit back and enjoy some laughs as well as somethings to think about from you youth or if you are in this age group of the kids in the film they might cover issues and feelings you are currently going through.
Fantastic movie!

offbeat comedy, definately worth a watch 15 Jan. 2009
By Vic Sage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a very unique comedy, a bit of a 1980's raunchy teen/college movie but with a modern twist. If you enjoy that type of comedy then this is a good movie for you.
Disappointing 7 July 2008
By D. Hendrickson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This isn't your typical teenage flick, no; it's far worse, the acting is substandard and someone forgot to have a plot. I purchased this DVD at the request of my daughters, they are Brad Renfro fans but even they were disapointed. I recommend renting this first before you purchase a DVD, you may save yourself a little green.

A COMEDIC MASTERPIECE 26 Jun. 2002
By Ryan Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is a wonderful flick that never made it to theaters. It should have been in theaters, and I'm not quite sure why it did not have a theatrical release. Happy Campers is a mixture between american pie and meatballs, about a summer camp that begins to go out of control.
If you are a fan of good teen comedies, you should without a doubt buy this movie. Trust me, you will not be sorry.
