Wet Hot American Summer
A film by David Wain
Starring Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter
An endlessly quotable film, this is David Wain’s brilliant absurdist riff on the camp – as in summer camp – comedies of his youth.
Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, “Wet Hot American Summer” follows a group of counselors who are each trying to complete their unfinished business before the day ends. The entire summer of pent-up sexual frustrations, unresolved post-traumatic stress, pending separations and of course, the talent show, all weigh heavily on the minds and groins of counselors and campers alike.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July! Around a core of performers from Wain’s sketch troupe The State, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks and many others form one of the decade’s great comedic ensembles.
