The Disney tween machine continues to plug along mixing sugar-pop ballads with the simple structure of summer camp in Camp Rock. The familiarity makes for something comfortable, nothing spectacular, but mindlessly enjoyable.
it's not as lovable as the High School Musical films. Still, the tween market is going to love this one
There's a terrific cast but nothing for them to do but waddle through your average Disney Channel blandness.
[A] derisive discussion of 'stupid cookie-cutter pop star stuff' is more than a little ironic in this Radio Disney petri dish, but at least the Jonas Brothers are a class act.
So 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."
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.
Camp 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!
