Michael Ian Black,
Devastated Peter takes a Hawaiian vacation in order to deal with the recent break-up with his TV star girlfriend, Sarah. Little does he know, Sarah's traveling to the same resort as her ex - and she's bringing along her new boyfriend.
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
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

Although called "Wet Hot", the credits thank the crew for surviving a cold, wet Pennsylvania spring. You can also see the actors' and actresses' breaths at points during the movie. See more »
The elastic on the men's Fruit of the Loom Briefs had the brand name printed on them which did not happen until years later. At that time the film was set, it was just the blue and yellow stripes. See more »
Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.
Come on - what?
Finish up the taters.
And then what did you say?
And then what did I say?
You said you were going to... fondle your sweaters.
Ah, uh - no I didn't. I said... fondue the cheddar... I was thinking about making fondue with cheddar cheese for dinner tonight.
No, Gene, that is *not* what you said.
That *is* what I said. Fondue cheddar.

Overall, pretty terrible, but gets a couple chuckles from sheer weirdness
I don't fully know how I feel about this movie. It's incredibly bizarre and strange, but it balances the normal scenes and the bizarre and weird scenes pretty terribly. For maybe the first half of the movie it feels like a normal, silly R-rated comedy (for the most part). Then, kind of out of nowhere, it slams all the weirdness and utterly ridiculous stuff into your face. It's rather jarring and really confusing. That being said, some scenes were just so strange that I couldn't help but laugh at them. So, we have this movie that is overall fairly bad, but it does make you laugh on occasion. I can't really call it a great movie, as I feel like every laugh the movie gets was gotten by the filmmakers just throwing silly stuff on the screen. That's not the hardest thing to do. But it it most certainly is a watchable film. It gets a few laughs. Maybe, possibly worth a watch, but you can probably do much better.
