“Family Camp” (Roadside)

This is the movie poster for "Family Camp." The Catholic News Service classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. (CNS/Roadside)

By Catholic News Service

Leaden evangelical comedy in which the wife (Leigh-Allyn Baker) of a business-obsessed dad (Tommy Woodard) convinces him to sign their family up for a weeklong visit to the summer camp their parish runs in the hope of getting him to focus on being a spouse and father. Instead, he gets caught up in a rivalry with the eccentric patriarch (Eddie James) of the clan with whom they share their rustic accommodations.

While almost squeaky clean, director and co-writer Brian Cates’ film is woefully inert when trying to be humorous and even more ineffective when the script he penned with Rene Gutteridge turns sentimental or preachy.

One vague sexual reference. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association rating is PG — parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
