:: Camp Rock

Camp Rock follows the lives of a talented teen Mitchie Torres (Demi Lovato), who yearns to share her songs with the world and a tempestuous young superstar Shane Grey (Joe Jonas), who has lost his passion for music. Set inside the acclaimed summer workshop, Camp Rock, aspiring singer songwriter Mitchie is thrilled when her mother, a caterer, takes a job as the camp cook so Mitchie can attend whilst working in the kitchen. Befriended by fellow camp member Caitlyn (Alyson Stoner) but intimidated by the immensely talented Tess Tyler (Meaghan Jette Martin) and her friends Peggy (Jasmine Richards) and Ella (Anna Maria Perez de Tagle), Mitchie lives a double life hiding that she is the cook's daughter and posing as a well-to-do camper in order to become part of the hottest clique at camp.

When she's overheard singing, but not seen, by teen pop star and celebrity camp instructor, plus lead singer of Connect Three, Shane Gray (Joe Jonas), he is completely taken and sets out to find the girl behind the beautiful voice. Mitchie then has to adjust in confronting her fears, step out of the kitchen and into the spotlight as herself.

It is quite a common theme to several similar stories - a person trying to achieve her musical dream with difficulties attached. Demi Lovato did well with her role but she isn't going to have a long and illustrious career. As for the Jonas Brothers, Camp Rock is nothing more than a vehicle to launch their music career and gain the following of that core teenage audience. The movie will only appeal to a certain age group, and it's definitely not in the class of High School Musical so don't expect similar success. However, don't be surprised if there is a sequel.
