Man Camp

Man Camp ★★★

Dealing with your widowed mother dating again is hard. 

Man Camp follows three brothers who celebrate their deceased father with a yearly camping trip. When they learn that their mother has a new man in her life, the camping trip turns into a four man adventure. Pete Gardner is a solid comedic character actor and I think he is perfectly cast as the new “man in their mother’s life.” I really enjoyed Scott Kruse’s performance as well. I hope to see him in more movies in the future. 

This movie hearkens back to movies like 1995’s Man Of The House where the potential future step father is put to the test in order to determine his worthiness. It’s a fun movie that hits on all of the expected story beats (in a good way) and wraps up in a satisfying bow.
