This movie is not what it looks like at all. It’s not a dumb teen sex comedy, or at least it’s also so much more. It’s weirder. Considerably weirder. Also everyone ever is in it! That is only a slight exaggeration! There’s been a lot written about Wet Hot American Summer recently because Netflix just made a prequel series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The show is good too, sometimes even great, while completely unnecessary. Right now I don’t have anything interesting or new to say, just go watch it before the summer is over. I don’t think it would be as fun to watch in the fall.
(Except I guess, um wow, the gay romance plot is so good? So sweet and well done, especially considering how this movie is fifteen years old. That feels really progressive and unexpected, I loved it.)
