Critic Reviews for Camp Rock
Camp Rock is the kind of confection that requires copious brushing and flossing immediately afterward, but given Disney's track record, that won't dissuade four out of five girls with Jonas Brothers fever from sinking their teeth right in.
There are plenty of sound messages about the importance of honesty and not being ashamed of who you are, but it's nothing that anybody hasn't seen a dozen times before.
It's really a great movie, like a modern-day version of an old Judy Garland-Mickey Rooney picture in which the kids put on a show that improves the lives of all who see it.
Director Matthew Diamond gets a solid enough performance and lots of toothy smiles from [Demi] Lovato.
This is a hit and has been carefully crafted by Disney to become one.
I love TV. But Camp Rock is TV in the worst way -- small in concept, small in execution.September 11, 2019 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Camp Rock
Jul 30, 2011A hybird product of High School Musical and Sleepaway Camp, except it's not meant to be a horror film but a horror "musical(?)" Targeted at kids whose age is no higher than 6Sylvester K Super Reviewer
Oct 22, 2010So Disney comes up with another plan to get tweens into musicals following the massive success of the "High School Musical" movies. They come up with "Camp Rock", a film about kids trying to get into the world of fame in a popular music camp. When we first heard of the film, I knew it wasn't going to be as good as HSM but I found it entertaining. Demi Lovato's performance as Mitchie Torres was good. Her character was believable due to her performance. The Jonas Brothers also prove to be good actors as well. But we really have to give props to Meaghan Martins' performance of Tess Tyler. Snotty, mean, and believable. A lot of you Rotten Tomatoes members are dissing because it is predicatable. Well it is. There are the typical tween movie cliches but you probably won't catch them. The songs are good and toe-tapping. You'll get them stuck in your head for weeks! Camp Rock is good family fun. It may have "tween" written all over it but it can be found entertaining depending on your mood. "Whatever, major loser."Bentley L Super Reviewer
Oct 09, 201010/10/2010 (TELEVISION) I don't usually get into these but I just happen to leave it running as I was doing my homework and I will admit that I actually thought it was okay, I'm more of a "Glee" dude. It's really nothing special but the same old story the keep giving preteens. A good choice for families with preteens or children. I won't watch this again but I did like it.EightThirty .

Sep 05, 2010Camp Rock is among the most basic family channel full length features out there, however, Camp Rock delivers to the best of it's ability. Yes the Jonas Brothers are getting very old, but I seem to like Joe in this, because aside from his poor singing, he actually has a hint of acting that could go somewhere. I didn't expect to like this film as much as I did, so I applaud it's efforts, and say, way to go!KJ P Super Reviewer
