Wet Hot American Summer (23-Jan-2001)

Director: David Wain

Writers: Michael Showalter; David Wain

Music: Theodore Shapiro; Craig Wedren

Producer: Howard Bernstein

Keywords: Comedy, Summer Camp, Spoof

The final day at a Jewish summer camp in Maine, Camp Firewood, 1981. Everyone's looking for a last minute hookup, and the counselors en masse head into town for an interesting day trip. Very original, extremely funny spoof of 70s/80s summer camp films, capturing the look and feel exactly; its utter lack of plot is no detraction. Unsuccessful upon release, WHAS has grown in stature as a stoner classic. By the team behind MTV's The State.
