If it's keyframed, you're going to have to move to that keyframe and manually move the camera to how/where you want it pointing.

Now, there's an uber cool motion trick to move a a video game. It's called the walk 3d tool (it's under the Hand/Pan and zoom tools on the toolbar.)

Park on the keyframe. Switch to the Walk 3D tool. The arrow keys move you forward/backwards, up/down like you were playing a video game. Click and drag on screen to 'drag' l/r/u/d

And you can always use the keyframe graph to lasso the keyframes for the camera and move them in time where you'd like. Also, if you take something like Camera position, you can lasso the keyframes themselves and 'reverse' animation.
