Send-up of late 70s/early 80s camp flicks like "Meatballs" and "Little Darlings" focuses on the counselors trying to get laid and/or stoned on the last weekend of a Maine summer camp in 1981 while the youngsters in their charge are thrown around like chew toys. Beth (Garofalo) is the camp director with the hots for an astrophysicist (Pierce) who finds that the camp is in danger of being crushed by Skylab. The plot also involves many other cast members trying to sleep with many other cast members, but to detail more of the story would take crucial print space away from the genius that is the Vietnam vet camp cook (Meloni), whose spiritual advisor is a can of mixed vegetables. Take that whatever way you want, but trust us, you really have to see it to believe it.
