Now, this was one funny movie. If you liked The State, the sketch comedy show from MTV, then you’ll most likely laugh at the same people here. Most of the cast is in this film, and Michael Showalter and David Wain (also the director) co-wrote it.

One of THE most underrated movies of 2001! I had heard good things about this movie when it was at Sundance, but it seemed bypass the Chicago are almost entirely. So I rented the DVD, and this movie was hilarious. It’s a shame that movies like American Pie 2 and Dung Pow (or whatever that awful-looking Martial Arts movie is called) are considered ‘daring’ and ‘edgy’ because of a few gross-out gags and little else. This movie was edgier and more daring than any comedy I’ve seen since the classic “Where’s Poppa”. It is most simply a parody of early 80’s summer camp flicks, but it also has a bizarre, absurdist genius to it all it’s own. Not every gag works, but it has enough unforgettable lines and sequences to ensure it’s eventual evolution into true cult classic. The cast is all great, but the best is Chris Melloni (of Oz and Law & Order SVU) who is freakishly hilarious in his role as the camp cook. You don’t just have to be a fan of MTV’s the State to enjoy this as I have never seen the show. This film won’t be for…

You either get it or you don’t Wet Hot American Summer is a movie which I have to admit I wasn’t thrilled by the first time I saw it, but the second time I really started to understand the humor and now it is my favorite comedy. The type of comedy in the movie (as others have stated) is very different then what you would normally see in prime time, but it gets more and more hilarious everytime you watch it… love it…
