Through it all, Murray smiles and forges ahead, but his big riffs have been edited down to frantic bursts of mugging.

It's difficult to come up with a more cliche situation for a summer pic than a summer camp, where all the characters and plot turns are readily imaginable. That makes director Ivan Reitman's accomplishment all the more noteworthy.

Camp counsellor Tripper (Murray) is a John Belushi clone whose 'charisma' dominates the film's standard wackiness and sentimental story (of a kid who doesn't fit).

A cheerful, if not particularly deft, summer-camp comedy.
