From the warped minds behind the 90s sketch show favorite The State comes one of the biggest cult films of the aughts Wet Hot American Summer! Set in the early 80s, this outrageous comedy covers the last day of summer at the fictitious Camp Firewood. First loves, mess hall cuisine, camp activities, and final night talent shows are all sharply skewered thanks to a star-filled cast led by Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Janene Garafalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, Judah Friedlander and, in his film debut, Bradley Cooper.
