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

Clean it up, and come to my office for the meeting.

I understand the parody aspect of this film, but Wet, Hot American Summer makes Meatballs look like Shakespeare. I'm not saying that the film doesn't have its moments, but they are far too few and far between for me to give anything other than my lowest rating. I think it's worth noting that the movie gets it's highest marks from IMDB users who are males under the age of 18. Perhaps I simply saw the movie twenty five years too late.
