Total spoof of 80's teen comedies, specifically those set at summer camps. Completely zany and goofy. Really trashed the utter stupidity of that "genre". Janeane Garofolo (think I spelled her name right) plays the camp director. Several members of MTVs "The State" also co-star. 2 other TV actors appear and though I forget their names, one is on "Frasier"...Niles I think and the other stars on "Oz" and Keller (he was especially hilarious as the cook with some rather strange sexual desires.) This kind of spoof/satire/parody is FAR superior to the crap mainstream Hollywood puts out with "Not Another Teen Movie" and the like. "Wet Hot American Summer" was unfairly looked over at the box office. The DVD has a making of documentary which shows not only the difficulties of the shoot but also shows us the zaniness continued off screen as well. Alcohol was readily available I think There is an alternate audio track that allows you to watch the film while occasionally hearing farts...yes, I said farts. Yup, I laughed. The deleted scenes are also a hoot, edited together as one musical montage. My fav scene from the film is when Janeane takes the camp counsellors to town where one assumes they'll take part in "teen fun" yet They attack old women for their purses, go on a wild drug binge where we hilariously see them in a crack house in all manner of drug use, etc I really hope this little film becomes a cult classic, it deserves some recognition.
