The Rainbow Tribe is a family comedy-drama movie from 2008 which revolves around a group of young boys who are sent off to summer camp where they meet, interact and learn from each other. The movie stars David James Elliott, Grayson Russell, and Ed Quinn in prominent roles. The movie begins with Morgan Roberts (David James Elliott), who is tasked with being a counselor at a summer camp by the camp director, Lou (Ed Quinn). Morgan initially refuses the offer, but after a series of events, he decides to accept the job. When he arrives at the camp, he is disappointed to find that he is responsible for a group of young boys and he has to share a cabin with them. Morgan is skeptical about his ability to handle the children, but he gradually begins to bond with them and become attached to them.

The boys in Morgan's cabin are called “The Rainbow Tribe” because they come from different backgrounds and each boy has a different skin color. The group includes a nerdy white kid, a chubby Hispanic kid, a shy Asian kid, a sporty African American kid, and a smart Native American kid. They initially do not get along and are divided into their respective cliques. However, Morgan encourages them to work together and they eventually become friends.

Morgan has to deal with a few challenges that the boys face, including bullying by a different group of boys and an upcoming baseball game against fierce competitors. However, with the help of the boys and his love interest, Tara (Julie Ann Emery), who is also a counselor at the camp, Morgan successfully navigates through these challenges.

The movie is a heartwarming tale about friendship, teamwork, and overcoming obstacles. The children learn valuable life lessons about acceptance, tolerance, and working together. The Rainbow Tribe is not just about having fun and playing games, but it teaches the boys to be responsible, independent and to grow as individuals.

The movie does a great job of portraying the characters with all their differences and similarities, which makes them relatable to the audience. They all have their own backgrounds and personality traits, which only adds to the humor and fun of the movie.

David James Elliott portrays an excellent performance as the reluctant counselor who blossoms into a caring and responsible adult, learning as much from the children as they learn from him. Grayson Russell, who plays the lead amongst the boys, delivers a fantastic performance. He gives life to his character and makes him more than just a chubby kid who loves cookies.

Ed Quinn provides an excellent comic relief as Lou, the camp director. He delivers witty one-liners with perfect timing, earning a fair share of laughs from the audience.

The movie's cinematography also deserves a mention, as the shots of the campsite and surrounding areas are simply breathtaking. The camera captures the natural beauty of the campsite in all its glory.

Overall, The Rainbow Tribe is a feel-good movie that is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.
