Storyline

In 2000, David Wain and Michael Showalter set out to make their first film Wet Hot American Summer. It was a low budget independent film and they cast their friends and a handful of unknown actors - many who were just starting out in the business. When it was originally released in 2001 it was panned by critics. Since then the film has become a cult classic and those friends have gone on to become some of the biggest names in comedy. During the original shoot, director Amy Rice had unprecedented access and shot over 25 hours of behind the scenes footage. None of this footage has been seen until now. Written by Anoymous

young and wet
19 February 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

In 2000, David Wain and Michael Showalter have gathered an interesting cast. Some are well known. Janeane Garofalo is an early recruit and Christopher Meloni is surprisingly funny despite his darker on screen work. Many others are lesser known. For example, Bradley Cooper is only two days out of school. Most have not hit their future highs. Amy Poehler is lovely and fun. Paul Rudd is a charmer. Everybody is forced to live the camp life for real. It rains way too much especially considering the movie takes place on one sunny day at camp. There is the SNAP game where the cast and crew have to guess at the rules. They are young and new. They become great friends. It really was summer camp for these people. One really wants to join them. At first, the movie floundered both critically and at the box office. Eventually, it becomes a cult-classic especially considering the star power before their rise.
