Goofs

At the end of the film in the last song, the camera man can be seen in several shots at the back of the room (top right of the screen) when the audience is shown; however, this fits in with the story because, when Nate and Jason were with Shane shortly before Final Jam, Nate says, "The press is here and they're gonna cover the whole night." Camera crews are often included in "the press," especially for pop stars. See more »

Shane Gray: I didn't sign up for this. Get my agent on the phone.
Brown Cessario: "Get my agent?" What happened to you, man? That kid on that TV, that's not who you really are. In there, Shane. What happened to the kid who just loved music?
Shane Gray: He grew up!
Brown Cessario: Big whoop! Stop acting like it's all about you.
Shane Gray: In my world, it is.

Disappointing...
14 July 2008 | by short_dancer3See all my reviews

I recently watched "Camp Rock" quite frankly because I was bored and I like to keep the T.V. on when I read. I am out of the age range that Disney tries to appeal to (a.k.a. preteens) but I figured "what the heck? let's try to get back in touch with the good old days".

First off, I found none of the songs really catchy and the choreography not quite what it could've and should've been (this from a dancer's POV, by the way). The ending song was especially cheesy and useless and should've been thrown out altogether. The ending choreography was just repetition and boring.

Secondly, the acting on the part of the lead girl, Lovato, was good for Disney Channel and she could probably be seen in more Disney movies to come. Because we all know that pretty much no Disney Channel actors ever leave the Big D. The Jonas Brothers aren't probably the greatest actors in the world and there certainly is no harm in an acting class (or two.... or three...).

And lastly, the plot has been done so many times (not only Disney is guilty of this either) that it was really predictable and boring and I found myself rolling my eyes. Girl likes boy, but oh no! a girl who wants the spotlight! And so on and so forth.

I'm sure many teenyboppers who love The Jonas Brothers, hoping for a resurrection of HSM will love this movie and have their rooms decked out in HSM and "Camp Rock" but for the rest of us.... probably not worth the time.
