The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve. At the center of the action is camp director Beth, who struggles to keep order while she falls in love with the local astrophysics professor. He is busy trying to save the camp from a deadly piece of NASA's Skylab which is hurtling toward earth. All that, plus: a dangerous waterfall rescue, love triangles, misfits, cool kids, and talking vegetable cans. The questions will all be resolved, of course, at the big talent show at the end of the day. Written by

In a July 2015 Entertainment Weekly interview, David Wain said that the ordeal that Victor undergoes while trying to get back from leading a canoe trip to "make out" with Abby was based on an experience he really had while he was a camp counselor: "I had just turned 16. I was assigned to drive a group of campers to an overnight camping trip and leave the next morning with another counselor and head back to camp. But I had just met this girl at the camp and I was so excited to see her that I decided, 'No, I'm going to leave late at night and race back to camp,' even though I barley knew how to drive. So I cranked up the tunes - pedal to the metal - and I was driving through pitch-black, winding unpaved roads as fast as I could in hopes of making out with this girl. And about two miles away from the campsite but still in the middle of this state park, I smashed hard into a tree. I lodged the fender deep into the tire, rendering the van utterly undriveable, and was stuck in the middle of the woods. I had no idea how to get back--I couldn't see my hand in front of me - but luckily I did end up wandering back to find the campsite with the kids and the counselor and they were like, 'What the hell is wrong with you?' After that they initiated a policy that junior counselors weren't allowed to drive vehicles at camp. I eventually did get to make out with the girl." See more »
On the "town trip" montage, the characters are seen eating French fries from McDonald's Super-Size fry containers. In 1981, when the movie was set, there were no Super-Sizes available at McDonald's. See more »
This movie made me so happy. The performers are so gifted. The details in the art direction and characterizations were pretty spot-on too. Amy Poehler in particular delighted me. That girl rocks my world. Everyone has their moment though. In this time when parodies are almost more common than original ideas, this movie stands out as one of the best.
