Mitchie (Lovato) canâ€™t wait to return to Camp Rock and spend the summer making new music with her friends Shane, Nate and Jason (Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas). But the slick new camp across the lake, Camp Star, has drummed up some serious competitionâ€”featuring newcomers Luke (Finley) and Dana (Bridges). With Camp Rock’s future at stake, will Camp Star’s flashy production and over-the- top antics win the sensational battle of the bands, or will Camp Rockers prove that talent, teamwork, and spirit are what truly matter?
Kacie absolutely loved the first movie so I knew we would be watching the sequel. The great thing is that the acting and the music has gotten a lot better and it was a pretty enjoyable movie.
For me, I liked that it focused more on life goals and less on romance. There is the boy-girl attraction angle but it’s just not front and center like the first one. I also liked the musical scenes that kind of reminded me of other classic musical movies like Grease or HSM. Plus the fact that the characters are familiar made it even more interesting to see how they’ve changed over the years.
As for Kacie, as long as the Jonahs Brothers were in it, she really didn’t care about anything else. Of course, she liked the music, too, and already knew most of the words to the songs.
Overall, it was a great family movie and definitely one we would watch again.
