Wet Hot American Summer

Directed by: David Wain
Written by: Michael Showalter, David Wain
Starring: Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Jeanine Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, and the list goes on and on...

Part of me just loves this movie because it reminds me of hot summer Sonora nights in hot tubs with mimosas and yoga and opium tea. But another part of me loves it because it's hilarious. It's not every second painfully hilarious like THE HANGOVER, but it has some of the best one-liners I've ever heard. The cast is incredible and even though I've never really been to real summer camp for more than a week, I can tell that it is a dead-on parody of a summer Jew camp. The good kind of Jew Camp, not the...bad kind.

What else can I say? At times it gets a little boring and plotless. I think it loses focus about 3/4 of the way through. But it's the perfect movie for a silly summer night with some silly friends and some silly booze/weed/vicodin/any other vice you may choose.
