Synopsis

Review Text Sex, drugs, car wrecks, spacecraft, radio celebrities, David Hyde Pierce, and more: Wet Hot American Summer has it all! Loaded with absurd laughs, this film is a refreshing twist on '80s teen angst and summer camp. Viewers who like to forget they're watching a film, beware: The characters and the film itself are constantly aware of themselves as a spectacle, and a lot of the humor relies on a viewer's ability to laugh at filmmaking. Writers David Wain and Michael Showalter (The State) found creative ways to "adhere" to action film conventions and create laughs in unusual places by their characters' strange reactions to the events in the script. Subtly downplayed, many big names like Jeannine Garofalo, Michael Showalter, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Marguerite Moreau, and the aforementioned David Hyde Pierce appear in a hilarious mess of events intertwined by one thing: the last day of summer camp. Director David Wain's first full-length feature made its debut at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, and due to limited distribution, only screened in selected lucky theaters. ~ Sarah Sloboda, Rovi
