    here's his [​IMG] review:
    Hello, Muddah,
    Hello, Faddah--
    Here I am at 'Wet Hot American Summah.'
    Wow, I hate it
    Something fierce--
    Except the astrophysicist David Hyde Pierce.
    He lives in a
    Cottage nearby
    And, boy, can he make Janeane Garofalo sigh.
    She's the director
    Of Camp Firewood,
    Which turns before our eyes into Camp Feelgood.
    She is funny
    As she's hurrying
    Through the campers' names, including David Ben Gurion.
    She dreams of bunking
    David Hyde Pierce,
    Who fears a falling Skylab will crush them first.
    Let me leave,
    Oh, Muddah Faddah--
    From this comic romp in Mother Nature . . .
    Don't make me stay, Oh, Mudduh Faddah--
    In this idiotic motion picture.
    Every camper
    And each counselor
    Is horny, especially Michael Showalter.
    He lusts after
    Marguerite Moreau's bod,
    But she prefers the lifeguard played by Paul Rudd.
    The camp cook,
    Chris Meloni,
    Goes berserk because he feels attacked by phonies.
    He talks to bean cans
    And screams and moans
    Periodically because of Post-Traumatic Anxiety Syndrome.
    I want to escape,
    Oh, Muddah Faddah--
    Life's too short for cinematic torture.
    Comedies like this,
    Oh, Muddah Faddah--
    Inspire in me the critic as a vulture.
    Ben and McKinley
    Achieve their fame
    As campers whose love dare not speak its name.
    Ken Marino
    Doesn't go rafting
    Preferring Marisa Ryan, who is zaftig.
    Watch David Wain's
    Direction falter,
    Despite the help of co-writer Showalter.
    They did "The State,"
    On MTV,
    And of the two, that is the one you should see.
    Thoughts of "Meatballs"
    Cruelly hamper
    Attempts by us to watch as happy campers.
    Allan Sherman
    Sang this on the telly.
    I stole from him, and he from Ponchielli.

    Roger Ebert ought to lay off the popcorn and try to retrieve whatever sense of humor may be buried underneath years and years of movie snacks.
