12 Days of Summer Movies: Day 3

Ah, the ol' summer camp movie. The "twist" on this one is that it's the adult alumni who return to Camp Nostalgiawanaka (under the tutelage of grandpa-like Alan Arkin) for one last weekend of remembrance. Bill Paxton's the bad boy, Diane Lane's the widow, Elizabeth Perkins is the frustrated single, Kevin Pollak is the buttoned-up pair of suspenders, Julie Warner (as usual) is the boring one, and Vincent Spano (as usual) is the one who can't act.

It's my turn at the plate today, as I try to force down the bland, white-bread antics of some of our most cherished B-grade actors in Indian Summer.
