* DumbBlonde: Trish is this trope encapsulated. She's an actress, spends her summer money on clothes at the mall, says that the mistake on Zack's fake ID means it's actually a decade earlier, and tops off with this:
--> ''after Mud, Gaby, and Zack say they are "smart enough to act stupid"''
-->'''Trish''': Yeah, and I'm stupid too!"


Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Dennis' fat camp counselor is pretty blatantly based off Richard Simmons.


Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: Most of the parents visiting the fat camp are very overweight themselves.


Added DiffLines:

* MaleGaze: Zack to Trish as she walks up to him sitting on the floor: "You know if you were wearing a skirt right now, I'd be in heaven."
** Trish is also the only girl in a bikini in the movie.
** And Mud pretty blatantly checks out her ass when they are leaving camp. And then does it ''again'' even after Gaby hits him for it.

** [[spoiler: Although, it is commented that no one is pressing any charges. Therefore, even InUniverse, Dennis ''could'' have gone to prison regardless of what Mud and his friends said; he just got lucky.]]

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler: Subverted when the camp gets busted. Dennis tells Mud that he is pulling this because, as an adult, he would face even worse consequences than anything that could happen to the kids. Instead, Dennis [[TakingTheHeat attempts to take the blame by claiming that the entire camp was a scam meant to indoctrinate the kids into a wacky cult.]] ]]

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler: Once the camp is busted, Dennis tries to take all the blame. He begins his "confession" by claiming that his plan was to find kids with money, get them away from their parents, win their confidence with junk food... Although Dennis takes this in a totally different direction, this is the way pedophiles and sex traffickers operate. This implication is underscored by the looks of dawning horror on the parents' faces as they are listening to Dennis -- no doubt, they are expecting something far worse than indoctrination into some wacky cult.]]



* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: After Dennis recognizes the camp as the hippie commune where it was all "sex, drugs, and debauchery."

* RainRainGoAway: A rainy day keeps the kids indoors. When they start talking about abandoning the camp, going home, and watching ''{{Baywatch}}'' on cable, Mud and Dennis organize some rainy day Olympic games to keep them occupied.

* OnlySaneMan: Celeste is no doubt the sanest and competent one of the adult cast. Mud and Gaby are this as far as the kids are concerned. They even lampshade it.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Hendricks is just a polite state trooper doing his job. He does get reasonably upset when he loses track of the yellow Gremlin during a pursuit, and again later on when [[spoiler:the ruse is uncovered]].
