Did Camp Rock work? Absolutely! Although a bit more mean spirited and adult themed than the High School Musical series, Disney still pulled off a charming movie that while entertains, it also teaches valuables lessons to its target audience. The Disney Company has found another success with a new cast of actors and actresses. Demi Lovato is a great asset to Disney's already amazing cast of tween stars, and supporting cast members. Alyson Stoner and Meaghan Jette Martin held their own which proves they could carry any upcoming Disney Channel movies on their own.
The Camp Rock extended edition DVD contains the full screen version (1.33:1) of the film (for the wide screen version pick up Camp Rock Blu-ray edition) and a plethora of extra features including a behind the scenes look at the filming of the movie, along with music videos, sing a longs, and "Camp Rock Karaoke"
This film is a great addition to the latest lineup of classic Disney Channel movies, and if you still don't have your fill of Camp Rock after your finished watching the DVD, don't worry -- a sequel is already in the works.
Tween idol Joe Jonas plays the leading man, a young pop star who's been behaving badly, and gets sentenced to teaching dance classes at an upscale summer camp for musicians. The other Jonas brothers also play supporting roles, and perform a couple of songs at the camp.
Demi Lovato plays the female lead, a promising singer/songwriter whose mother takes a catering job at the camp so that she can afford the fees. There's also the rich girl, played by Meaghan Jette Martin, and her obligatory two henchgirls; the usual outcast who befriends the new girl (well played by Alyson Stoner), and the well intentioned Camp Director. Add some supporting singers and dancers, and a ready group of back-up dancers, and you have (drum roll) Camp Rock.
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):
1. Girl goes to camp and meets boy
2. Girl messes up big time
3. This is a Disney movie, so after the song and dance, everyone lives happily ever after.
While I recognize the age-appropriate manner in which the movie addresses certain issues, the wrapping up happens far too quickly to be even remotely believable, but then, the target audience probably isn't paying too much attention to the story anyway.
I've seen girls doing the "I'm not worthy" bow in front of posters for this movie, so I'm guessing that it would be a good gift for any fan of the Jonas Brothers on your list.
Tween rating: 4.5 stars
Adult rating: 3 stars (given for the music and the family values)

The Jonas Brothers were also great, but I was surprised and disappointed that Nick and Kevin weren't in the movie much. In fact, I remember thinking half way through, "where are those two Jonas boys? They've had only one scene and it's halfway through the movie already!" Joe surprised me too by being a great actor! During the movie, I admit, I never thought of him as Joe Jonas, but rather, Shane Gray.
Overall, Disney definitely has created another smash hit with "Camp Rock." Unlike in other Disney flicks like High School Musical, when some of the girls in this movie get bullied, they get angry rather than shrinking away and moping.Read more ›
