HEAVY MIDNITES: Wet Hot American Summer

Feather your hair and grab your short shorts; we’re headed back to Camp Firewood with the endlessly quotable, obsessively rewatchable cult comedy that still has us giggling with glee and celebrating high times, hard bodies and soft rock. A pitch-perfect spoof and loving tribute to the classic teen sex romps of the ‘80s, Wet Hot American Summer gloriously captures the hormone-soaked hilarity of youth while totally nailing the period details of our nation’s last great era. Bursting from the inventive minds of David Wain and Michael Showalter (both from MTV’s The State), the film features a lightning-in-a-bottle ensemble cast of up-and-comers including Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and many more (including Heavy Midnites hero Janeane Garofalo!), leaving an indelible mark on a generation of emerging comedians. So revisit the French kissing, sweater-fondling, level-5-charm-spell spectacular before hitting your bunk with the new Netflix show Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp!

Dir. David Wain, 2001, 35mm, 97 min.
