Allyyy you beautiful spirit, can you give me some names of movies about camp (besides the parent trap ;) ) and 2000 area romcoms that you love?

Oh boy have you come to the right place

So obviously the Parent Trap films (both the original and remake) are #1

My second favourite is definitely It Takes Two, which is also my favourite Olsen Twins film, and as a child I wanted to be like Amanda Lemmon more than anything

Wet Hot American Summer is fantastic and gives great insight to what the counsellors get up to rather than just the campers

I loved ‘Heavyweights’ as a kid, I remember watching that at after school care

Moonrise Kingdom! A classic and so incredibly aesthetically pleasing

Sleepaway Camp - it’s an old horror film I watched on YouTube last week after someones recommendation, and despite the gory nature there were so many similarities to my camp haha

Camp Rock obviously, this also resembled my Summer in some ways hehe

Jesus Camp - I watched this documentary on Netflix and it’s so interesting and cringe worthy at the same time

Fired Up - best cheer film of all time

2000s era rom coms and generally gr8 movies: What A Girl Wants, Raise Your Voice, The Perfect Man, The Challenge, Getting There, Passport to Paris, Winning London, New York Minute, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, The Hannah Montana Movie, Sleepover, Aquamarine, Legally Blonde, Bring It On (any of them), Just My Luck, Cheaper By The Dozen, She’s The Man, Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Suddenly 30, Flipped and My Girl (60s/90s, but great).

  • Diane Barrows: Besides, you don't want to be an orphan forever.
  • Amanda Lemmon: So adopt me, why don't you?
  • Diane Barrows: They won't let me adopt you on my salary. Besides, you deserve a mother and a father.
  • Amanda Lemmon: So, get a husband.
  • Diane Barrows: It's not like buying a car, you know.
  • Amanda Lemmon: I know. It's got to be that can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, World Series kind of thing, right?
  • Diane Barrows: Hey, a girl's got to have her standards
