style and tone
DRINKING BUDDIES (2013)
While not an improvised film, Man Camp has a similar feel and tone, with our actors working off of the script and exploring moments beyond the page. The performances and the relationships of Man Camp make it a special film with a lot of heart, anchored by the actors' ownership of the story.
HOME ALONE (1990) , THE PARENT TRAP (1998)
Man Camp is basically a grown up version of a 90s kids-gone-wild film. From the mapped out plan for Alan’s demise to the desire to meddle in parental relationships, Man Camp calls back to films from the era that the Mann boys grew up in, and the maturity level they revert to whenever they’re together.
CITY SLICKERS (1991)
With a balance of broad comedy, expansive adventure, and a ton of heart, City Slickers is the kind of storytelling that Man Camp most closely resembles. Characters discovering new depths and personal capacities against the backdrop of the great outdoors makes for incredible stories.
