Great Job, Internet!: Wet Hot American Honey finds an extremely unlikely common ground

13 February 2017 11:36 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Wet Hot American Summer is a cult classic comedy (and TV series) from The State alums. American Honey is a gritty, lyrical 160-minute art film from filmmaker Andrea Arnold. Tonally and artistically, they have nothing in common. What they have in common, however, are young, attractive people partying in warm weather. And, sometimes, that’s all it takes to give us a killer mashup. That’s what YouTube user Johnny 2 Cellos has given us with Wet Hot American Honey.

Set against the crusty, propulsive keyboard plinks of Jefferson Starship’s “Jane” (which opens both Wet Hot American Summer and its accompanying series), the trailer overrides American Honey’s diegetic soundtrack to give it the low-stakes look of a suggestive teen sex comedy (replete with comedic freeze frames and vintage title cards) rather than the sobering exploration of class and youthful recklessness it is.

A look-back at the previous attempts to bring Archie to TV before they got it right with Riverdale...

When Riverdale premieres on the CW on January 26th, it will mark a milestone for Archie Comics - the first time in the company's 75-year history that its characters will truly shine on television. A mix of gleefully ridiculous kitsch with standout performances and some truly smart writing, the series is poised to be 2017's breakout TV hit.

That said, it took a while for Archie to get to this point. There have been many attempts to bring Archie and his friends to TV before, but these all suffered for either being shoddily animated (the various 1960s cartoons), misguided (1990's Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again), or just plain, um, weird (the X-Files cash-in Archie's Weird Mysteries »
