Camp Rock is one of my favourite Disney Channel Original Movies.
Mitchie Torres aspires to be a singer and is desperate to attend a summer camp, Camp Rock. Unfortunately her parents cannot afford to send her but luckily her mum secures a job at the camp and Mitchie gets to go with her.
Whilst singing alone Mitchie is heard by a record label producer and he likes what he hears. The problem is, he never caught a sight of who it was.
Mitchie, on the other hand, is finding it hard to fit in when all those attending are rich and talented and therefore decides to lie about her life. Lies always get found out in the end!
I liked the character Mitchie as she is a down to earth girl and it is easy to see why she thinks she won't be accepted when everyone around her is so different. I am glad her lies were found out as it showed there are consequences for your actions and wouldn't look very good for a childrens channel to encourage lying.
I think the Jonas Brothers were a good fit in the film but I felt as if they were playing themselves, just with a different name. Why not just call them the Jonas Brothers rather than "Connect 3", I don't like that name for a band at all.
The songs in this film are really good. I always find myself singing along to then. My favourite song is "This is Me" as it is a catchy tune and has good lyrics.
This is a brilliant musical for children with singing and dancing being a central focus as well as good messages about friendship.
Summary: DCOM at its best
