Camp Overton is the number three weight-loss camp in Southern Pennsylvania, and Robert is attending, whether he wants to or not. Getting shipped off to weight-loss camp is hardly Robert’s idea of the perfect summer, but even he isn’t prepared for what can be lost or gained. Robert and his fellow campers tackle the growing pains of adolescence as this bunch of misfit teens is forced to find solace in one another. Their search for acceptance, a hot make-out session, and the last contraband Butterfinger is sure to delight audiences of all weight classes.
See it if you enjoy smart-ass off-broadway fare with a talented cast and some truly delightful moments.
Don't see it if you're not up for a show that tends to wink at the audience. It's a fun concept, but the show is pretty uneven.
See it if you want to see great actors show off how well they can sing and entertain an audience. You want to see a work in progress. Taft!
Don't see it if you want to see great acting or storytelling. Unmemorable music. Juvenile humor. Unlikable protagonist. Underdeveloped characters/story
See it if You enjoy mediocre SNL sketches. The premise is fun and cute but the show never really takes off. Hopefully it can improve during previews.
Don't see it if You are expecting lots of laughs. Most jokes fall flat. The LOL moments are few & far between, however Katie Lander is quite funny.
See it if you perceive more with your heart than your head; you care more about performances than about writing; you relate to being fat.
Don't see it if you need wit or depth of character; if you aren't willing to suspend your critical mind for an inch-deep fun time.
