"High times. Hard Bodies. Soft Rock.” - Eureka Pictures
It is the last day of camp on a particularly hot summer day in 1981. The kids are pumped and the camp counsellors have one last day to link up romantically. Beth (Janeane Garofalo) the camp director, is trying to keep her counsellors in check while pursuing her own love interest Henry (David Hyde Pierce). Amongst the sex-driven antics, there is a NASA space station crisis, the greatest talent show ever and a talking can of mixed vegetables. Honestly, there is no way to explain this movie other than a hilarious celebration of summer’s end with the best of the best in comedy! Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Bradley Cooper and Christopher Meloni are just a few of the stars that stud this flick!
**Wet Hot American Summer can be viewed on Netflix!
