FAMILY CAMP Stars Hope Movie Encourages Families to Grow Closer to God and Each Other

By Movieguide® Contributor

The Skit Guys will make their theatrical debut this spring with the star-studded, family-friendly movie called FAMILY CAMP.

FAMILY CAMP is a funny and heartwarming movie about a dysfunctional family that learns how to love one another at a Christian camp. The movie has some very positive Christian messages, no foul language, no sex, and lightweight slapstick violence.

The cast includes Leigh-Allyn Baker (GOOD LUCK CHARLIE, WILL & GRACE), Gigi Orsillo (SLEEPER AGENT), and famed Skit Guys, Tommy Woodard and Eddie James. 

“I feel like there’s a real hole in the movie world when it comes to family comedies. I mean, this is what used to drive the box office,” Baker said. “People, now more than ever, need to laugh. I’m really glad that people can laugh at this and laugh with us.”

“For over 20 years, we’ve dreamed about making a comedy feature film,” James chimed in. “Our goal is to always include humor, heart, and Him (God), and we were able to accomplish that in FAMILY CAMP.”

Woodard added: “We believe humor helps break down barriers. With our first movie, we hope families will not only laugh together, they will also draw closer to each other…and to God.”

FAMILY CAMP is a funny movie with many heartfelt moments. It is to be commended, because when it looks like it’s getting hokey, there are some excellent surprises and plot twists that keep viewers glued to the movie. In terms of foul language and sex, the movie is very clean. The violence is slapstick, however, and slightly mean spirited in a couple places, such as when Eddie practices his chiropractic skills on other people. There’s a lot of good in the movie, however, like how to love your wife and how to love your husband, how children should be appreciated for who they are, the importance of faith, getting over pride, and much, much more.

FAMILY CAMP features producer Darren Moorman and Trey Reynolds, also known for Movieguide® Award nominee BLUE MIRACLE, and Justin Tolley, who produced Movieguide® Award winner WAR ROOM.
