If you are a fan of the Jonas Brothers, like some of the female members of our house are, then YOU KNOW that tomorrow is THE day. It’s Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam day on Family. It’s the day we find out what happens to Shane Grey (Joe Jonas) and Mitchie (Demi Lovato) after they find each other at the end of the summer.

Well, my lovely little assistant, Miss Emily Martell, age 9.5, was very excited to accompany me to see a screener of the movie last week. Not only was she able to chow down on s’mores in her very own theater, but she was, like the rest of her friends, dying to find out if Shane and Mitchie kiss in the sequel. Now, since none of you get the see the movie until tomorrow night, we are aren’t going to tell you. You are just going to have to see for yourself…
What we CAN tell you is that Connect Three had big plans to spend the summer at Camp Rock, which, of course meant big plans for Shane and Mitchie to have a fun, romantic summer. But all of that takes a turn for the dramatic when a rival camp across the lake, Camp Star, threatens to shut Camp Rock down for good. The romance must be put aside so the band and the campers can help save their beloved camp, with Mitchie leading the fight.
Well, the romance is put mostly aside. Look for a new budding romance between Nick’s character Nate and a Camp Star pianist. The lyrics are kind of silly…I, I’m good at wasting time, I think lyrics need to rhyme. And you’re not asking.But I’m trying to grow a mustache. I eat cheese, but only on pizza, please. And sometimes on a homemade quesadilla. Otherwise it smells like feet to me. And I, I really like it when the moon looks like a toenail. And I love it when you say my name…but it’s adorable in the movie and Miss Emily and I have been singing it – pretty much nonstop – since last week.
The music is better than the original.
The dancing is better than the original.
The characters are better than the original…it was nice to see all three of the Jonas brothers having larger roles this time around.
In fact, the whole production is better.
If you liked Camp Rock…
You are going to LOVE Camp Rock 2.
