YMMV / Return to Sleepaway Camp

  • Designated Hero: Alan. He's a whiny, mean fat kid who regularly bullies the younger campers, yet the audience is supposed to feel sorry for him when he gets bullied or complains that he doesn't have any friends. Most of his negative treatment is arguably a reaction to him being an asshole to other people. Angela claims she was protecting him but it's clear he's exactly like (and in some cases worse) than the victims she targets.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Alan. When he saw his skinned frogs.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Michael crossed it when he skinned Alan's pet frogs alive.
  • Narm: Ricky's reading of the line "ANGELAAAAA!" comes across as this.
  • The Scrappy: People view Alan as this.
    • Replacement Scrappy: Is this to Angela.
    • Take That, Scrappy!: That said, he sure goes through a lot of punishment throughout the film, and ultimately gets beaten senseless by his older brother.
  • The Untwist: It's obvious the "sheriff" is really a woman and Angela. The voice box disguising "his" voice makes it even more obvious.
  • What an Idiot: T.C. and Spaz in the spear sequence. Sure, let's keep looking down the hole someone just shoved a pointy stick through. What happens next is unsurprising.
