4.0 out of 5 stars The Big Chill meets Meatballs in funny, touching film September 19, 2002
"Indian Summer" is a wonderful film saluting "the Golden Era" of Camp Tamakwa (a real camp in the Canadian/New York wilderness), but it's also about reconnecting with youth, friends, love and nature. Uncle Lou (Alan Arkin), Camp Tamakwa's camp supervisor for many years, invites campers from "the Golden Era" (the early to mid 1970s) as a reunion of sorts, and a group of friends and ex-campers make the trek back to the woods and their youth. Matt (Vincent Spano) and Kelly (Julie Warner) are on vacation to "work on their marriage;" Matt's having a mid-life crisis, and Kelly just wants to know where she stands. Jennifer (Elizabeth Perkins) is Matt's ex-camp-girlfriend and Kelly's best friend, swept away by the nostalgia of camp. Brad (Kevin Pollack) is Matt's cousin, business partner, King of the Shreks (camp pranks), and a constant commentator of how small everything's gotten. Beth (Diane Lane) is a ex-camp tomboy, whose husband Rick recently died. Jack (Bill Paxton), Rick's best friend, was expelled from camp by Uncle Lou long ago, but still rated an invitation. Jamie (Matt Craven) never really grew up, and brought his young fiance Gwen (Kimberley Williams) up for a week of fun & games. Helping Uncle Lou out is the camp maintenence man, Stick (Sam Raimi, taking a hilarious step from behind the camera). Through the week, these friends reconnect, relive camp memories (first kiss), pulling camp gags (short-sheeting, hand-in-warm-water, etc.), participating in camp activities (the Tamakwa-thon), and working out their various problems. Over these precedings looms the prospect of Uncle Lou closing the camp for good. Everyone does an admirable job; you can actually feel their joy and pain. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic ensemble picture April 22, 2004
"Indian Summer" isn't the sort of film I normally watch. A light comedy about the innocence of childhood contrasted with the problems of adulthood, the film engages in deep sentimentality on a regular basis. I am rarely suckered in by sappy, syrupy movies. "Indian Summer" is different; I first saw the film on cable back in the early 1990s and quickly learned to like its ensemble cast, wonderful scenery, and funny moments. Since I usually watch horror films, the irony of viewing a movie set at a summer camp where no one expires at the hands of a machete wielding madman still makes me chuckle. When I stumbled over a DVD version of "Indian Summer" recently, I knew I had to revisit the movie. I suspected I wouldn't enjoy it as much as I did ten years ago. I was wrong. The movie resonates even more deeply because I am ten years older than when I first saw it. I never went to summer camp as a child, except for a weekend stay as part of a sixth grade project, but I can completely identify with many of the movie's themes nonetheless. I think most of us tend to idealize memories of our childhood even if the recollections aren't as poignant as we would like to think. "Indian Summer" captures perfectly this tendency and throws it back at you with a few laughs.
The owner of Camp Tamakwa, "Uncle" Lou Handler (Alan Arkin), has finally decided to sell his summer camp and retire. He feels that the kids today don't identify with him like they once did, so he wants to move on. Before he sells, though, he decides to hold a reunion at the camp and invite as many of his former guests as he can.

5.0 out of 5 stars recommended September 20, 2011
It's apparently very difficult to make a film that is sweet and sentimental without also being mawkish, manipulative, corny, insulting, witless or juvenile (or one of dozens of other entertainment maladies). It makes one very partial to films, such as this one, that manage to succeed. Perhaps it is really an older person's film - for those who have seen the treasures of their youth destroyed by decay or progress or just changing fashions. Alan Arkin takes an indirect path to save the summer camp his family has run for decades. It doesn't sound like much, but the film is well written, extremely well cast, and manages in the end to be very touching, without the aforementioned ailments. Given that the Blu-ray disk costs no more than going to the theater (and a lot less if you pour your own soda), it is a real bargain. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A walk down Memory Lane October 23, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After being a kid 15 or so years ago and being a huge fan of films of all types, this was one of the movies I always talked about and never set out to buy. I mean I won't spend 20 bucks on the DVD, but if the Blu Ray is 10 bucks and easily accessible, why not. If it sucks I lose 10 bucks, so what, if not I could do some serious walking down memory lane and remembering how I watched an "old people movie" and laughed a lot when I was younger.

So after learning that it was getting released I was pretty excited and wondered if I would laugh at the same parts or think that the movie was cheesy stupid crap and gave it to someone as a gift. I shouldn't have doubted myself. This movie was every bit as amazing as it was when I watched it so many years ago. I laughed at all the same parts and understood more clearly some of the parts that I didn't get or didn't care for when I was younger. Not to mention the cast is great, Bill Paxton as the rebel camper, Alan Arkin as the lovable former camp head "Uncle Lou" is just charming. Let me not forget Kevin Pollack among others (horror master director Sam Raimi plays a huge part..sort of) that are part of this cast of characters find themselves returning to camp long after each of them have established themselves as adults and left camp Tamakwa a part of the past.

No sooner than they dock their canoes does old drama stir up, old flames re-kindled, and thankfully to one camper bringing along his new girlfriend, does new life breathe into some old cabins deep in the canadian woods.

This movie is great for when you need a good movie that is just heartwarming, funny, touching. This is a great escape from all the crap mostly that is out there now, bad acting, shotty directing, sub par cinematography, mediocre scripts.
