Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I get that Wet Hot American Summer is a spoof of the camp comedy genre that was popular in the 80’s and early 90’s. The thing is spoofs should be clever or at least funny and I found neither in Wet Hot American Summer. Look I get it. I see where the jokes are. I just didn’t find it funny. And for me it was 10 years too late. It’s like a film today spoofing Carry On’s… the time has very much passed. A great cast who all give it their own but for me it was a major miss.
Best Bit: Great cast
Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid
