Editorial Reviews

If you're itchin' for excitement and a rash of adventure-- the hilarious comedy POISON IVY is going to grow on you! Michael J. Fox ("Family Ties") and Nancy McKeon ("Facts Of Life") star in this zany adventure about an unpredictable summer camp full of hijinks and romance for campers and counselors alike. There's the predictable swimming, boating and nature hikes at camp Pinewood, but the "fun" really begins when pretty assistant nurse Rhonda (McKeon) arrives and catches the eye of heartthrob staff counselor Baxter (Fox). Between bumbling camp director Big Irv (Robert Klein), the shenanigans of his five mischievous charges, and the amorous advances of Big Irv's wife, Margo (Caren Caye), he can't get close enough to the nurse to play doctor. Will Baxter get his girl before camp Pinewood gets the best of him? It's the campy comedy POISON IVY, where the fun is contagious and the laughs are breaking out all over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Michael J. Fox movie December 19, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a good family comedy with Michael J. Fox. Dont confuse it with the other Poison Ivy movie with Drew Barrymore. The Michael J. Fox comedy Poison Ivy came out in 1985. It centers around a kids camp counselor (Fox) who gets a secret crush with another counselor (played by Nancy McKeon from the TV show Facts of Life). This movie is currently only available used but is worth getting if you are a Micharl J. Fox fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A camp movie classic! February 1, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
I picked this movie up at a discount store years and years ago.
In fact, it's one of my only reasons to hold on to a VCR.

Michael J. Fox plays a camp counselor with his eyes set on Nancy McKeon's camp nurse.
Other plots center around the campers in Fox's bunk. We have the introverted writer, the fat kid, the golden boy, the sports star...
It's a seriously charming movie. It's as dumb as any made-for-TV production is, but there's so much delight inserted into this movie that it falls into the category of movies like The Goonies and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. If you grew up with it, the movie holds so much importance that it's hard to forget - or even think critically about.

I wish this movie would get released on DVD. But in the meantime, at least it's out there on VHS.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite movie as a kid of the 80's April 12, 2014
Format:VHS Tape
Remember "back in time" when you could tape things off of TV onto VHS? I was IN LOVE with MJ Fox. Naturally, The Facts of Life was one of my favorite shows too so I was excited to see these too coupled up. I must have watched this one 100 times and it definitely stands the test of time. A classic family flick I wish they would put on BluRay so I could cherish it forever!
