The premise: Teenape is summoned to be a counselor at Camp Arawak. Due no doubt to budgetary constraints there are no camp attendees, rather, the action takes place over a weekend training session for other camp counselors. After arriving in his Dodge Neon, Teenape vies for domination over all the other counselors. The jokes are pre-junior high school fodder, and while there is little explicit footage in the film, the conversation can't get two words away from sex, violence, or pointless profanity at any time. Note to the filmmakers: repetition does not make your movie funnier.
The whole mess devolves into "The Most Dangerous Game" with Teenape on the defensive. At one point the directors rip off "Jack Frost" (the Russo-Finnish production made famous by "Mystery Science Theater 3000") by having Teenape encounter Grandfather Mushroom in the forest. Here, after a gratuitous reference to Ivanushka, hero of "Jack Frost", Grandfather Mushroom gives Teenape a mystical headband instead of turning him into a bear (which would have made for a more interesting movie, by far).
The final ten minutes or so of the movie features pointless and cartoon-like violence as Teenape battles the remaining camp counselors in the woods. I was actually rolling my eyes when "Proudfoot" attempted to slay Teenape by playing him heavy metal riffs on his guitar.Read more ›
At camp, Teenape has the hots for oversexed camper Honey Potter...and then the diabolical plot twist, so bizarre, no one will be left into the theater the last half hour of the movie!
F-bomb, sex, male nudity. Must be freakin' stoned to watch.
The acting along with the writing style meld together perfectly, like a buttery grilled cheese sandwich. The looks on the actors faces when they deliver their lines is hilarious too. This film is made to make you laugh, but more importantly, it looks to be made by people who enjoyed making this movie, and also people who enjoy pop culture and the 80s. I love this movie and it is one of my favorite comedies, right up there with Ernest Goes To Camp and Meatballs. If you get a chance watch those and this back to back to back, it's an excellent triple header, especially during the summer.

Teen Ape is recruited to help be a counselor at a Summer camp. We meet some old characters and some new. All end up with Teen Ape in their cross hairs.Published on April 4, 2013 by Christian Dickerson
In fact, it probably wasn't even worth the time I'm spending on this review. TeenApe is a white kid in a mask, imitating some confused idea of what a black teenager is like. Read morePublished on October 31, 2010 by sparklepony
The plot is ridiculous and uninteresting. The cast couldn't act its way out of a wet paper bag. The characters are juvenile and beyond stupid. The lead character wears an ape mask. Read morePublished on January 16, 2010 by D. Rudnick
