Vacation totally crazy (alternative title: Summer with Obstacles ; Original Title: Camp Nowhere ) is an American adventure comedy from 1994. Directed by Jonathan Prince , the screenplay was written by Andrew Kurtzman and Eliot Wald .
Morris Himmel learns that his parents want to send him to summer camp. He discusses it with his friends, who are threatened with something similar: Zack Dell, Trish Prescott and Gaby Nowicki. The children decide to organize their own summer camp, in which no discipline would apply. You will find the former teacher Dennis Van Welker, who is willing to pretend to be a supervisor. The group rents a farm and moves there.
Some time after the children's departure, the parents announce that they want to visit the camp.
Steven Gaydos wrote in Variety magazine on August 26, 1994 that comedy was wasting its potential. In the plot there are elements of The Club of the Dead Poets and Lord of the Flies , which would quickly disappear in favor of a "traditional" plot. The level largely corresponds to that of a “standard TV sitcom ”. Gaydos praised the performance of a number of cast members, including debuting Jonathan Jackson and Wendy Makkena.
The film magazine Cinema wrote that the film was "children's stuff, but very personable".
