Plot Summary

Get ready for laughs with an all-star cast in the outrageous comedy Wet Hot American Summer. It’s the last day of Camp Firewood’s season, but there’s still time for the big talent show, a little romance... and for everyone to be wiped out by the piece of NASA’s Skylab that’s hurtling toward Earth. David Wain (Role Models) directs Paul Rudd (Knocked Up), Elizabeth Banks (The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Amy Poehler (Baby Mama), Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live), and David Hyde Pierce (Frasier) in the romp Michael Agger at The New Yorker calls “hilarious!” As claims, “imagine your American Pie and Scary Movie type teen film with a great cast, a hysterical and far wittier script, and tongue planted firmly in cheek” and you have Wet Hot American Summer!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The laughs are scattershot. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: The writing here is rarely funny, and often trite and predictable. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 18, 2002

Rotten: Simply seems like a dim-witted addition to an already undistinguished canon. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This low-budget comedy will most likely try the patience of a paying audience with its uneven pacing, wavering tone and poor production quality. – Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Funny stuff!.

Laugh out load. funny! Awesome cast! :)


Without a doubt one of the best comedies of all time

One of My All-Time Favorites

This movie is genius. I honestly don't understand how anyone can NOT like this movie. I went to Jewish summer camp for 10 years of my life and this is my experience pretty much down to a T. Great actors, great writing, seriously what an incredible movie.
