Wet Hot American Summer

In 2001, members of MTV's sketch comedy group The State came together with Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Zak Orth, A.D. Miles to star in the David Wain-directed film We Hot American Summer. The film, which initially flopped, is apparently/possibly/according-to-some, now considered a cult classic and in honor of its tenth anniversary, David Wain, Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black (collectively known as Stella) are hosting a celebration of the film at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 26 "with tons of GUESTS and SURPRISES!!" Tickets for the Brooklyn event go on sale today (6/10) at noon.

Wet Hot American Summer is currently Netflix on demand if you're into that kind of thing.

David also keeps busy working on Adult Swim show "Children's Hospital."

And David Wain hosted a 10th anniversary screening of the movie at the LA Film School theater (in LA) last night (6/9), and will be hosting a reception to celebrate a Wet Hot-inspired art show in Santa Monica tonight. The movie is also screening (sans David) in Boston tonight (6/10). More event info and the movie's trailer, below...

Anyone using Janeane Garofalo and Hot in the same sentence ought to be tied up between two trees as the drums summon Kong

funniest movie ever made

Janeane Garofalo is a dour talentless piglet.

Only funny scene in this movie is the one where they take a day trip and do a whole bunch of drugs.

10:56 AM- you are a woman hater.

10:57, how you find that scene funny and not the rest of the movie is baffling.

You called her talentless and a piglet. She isn't talentless, that's absurd, and you wouldn't call her a piglet if it was a man...so yeah, you are probably a closet woman hater. So go fuck yourself.

Posted by Colin P Fitz | June 10, 2011 11:35 AM

If you people don't find the concept of Paul Rudd repeatedly throwing whiny children out of a moving vehicle funny, then I really have nothing to say to you.

WOrst part of that movie is the way too long Molly Shannon part.

The best part of the movie is the motorcycle scene.

Or the scene where Joe Lo Truglio reacts to Ken Marino rescuing the boaters off camera.

No, I'm fine with Janeane. In fact, sometimes I find her attractive (that varies though sometimes).

You have brilliant deductive reasoning powers. We're so fortunate to have a day laborer's wit among us.

11:44 yeah i could do without the Molly Shannon thing, and those two other scenes you described make me laugh just thinking about them.

Garofalo is attractive when she hasn't washed her hair for a week while on a heroin jag.

She's a trust fund brat. Daddy finances her "rebellion."

Janeane Garofalo and Colin Fitz would make remarkably stupid and ugly children.

Colin P Fitz you poor old queen. Janeane Garofalo isn't actually a piglett ... she's a full on pig, and as talentless as peeling lead based paint in the tenement of your MSNBC addled mind. You really ought to stop listening to that mind control, brother. Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.

All rebellion is financed by the creativity, capital, hard work, blood and passion of the capitalist.

Good manners and bad breath will get you nowhere

Posted by Butchie | June 10, 2011 12:35 PM

Summer camp has always been for white northeastern children of privilege. I never went. It looks like it may have been fun. But this movie was not very entertaining to those who are more middle class. It was sloppy, crappy and self-indulgent movie making. I was busy mowing lawns and picking weeds when all these rich kids were off at their "hilarious and special" summer camps. Fuck the whole lot of you. I hate myself and want to die.

"Summer camp has always been for white northeastern children of privilege."

Pretty much everyone I knew who went to summer camp was Jewish. I don't think privlege had as much to do with it as it being a cultural thing.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 12:57 PM

I'm not Jewish, not of privilege, and I went to summer camp. Not to be culturally relevant, but to get me the fuck out of the house to give my parents a little peace.

Summer camp is not what I guess many of you think. Then again, I guess them bug zappers are pretty entertaining out there in Iowa in the summers. Hard to beat that.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 1:10 PM

I wasn't suggesting that everyone who goes to summer camp is Jewish. Just that, like the Catskills, summer camp became a huge ritual for middle and working class Jewish kids in the city and, subsequently, the suburbs.

I don't live in Williamsburg and I don't have a trust fund, so stick it where the sun don't shine.

So you are saying people from Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach and Coney Island are all trust fund brats?

Garofalo is an upper middle class trust funder whose "rebellion" is financed by her daddy's filthy lucre.

Unless you went to some NY Times-sponsored camp for the under privileged, if you went to summer camp your family was very economically comfortable. Quit being so ashamed and defensive about being from a well-off, privileged background. Youre posting here and life is good. Calm down richie rich.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 1:32 PM

Garofalo is grossly unattractive to me, and I believe that I represent the majority male opinion in the world at this time. Except for maybe the Inuits, she's probably an erotic oddity for them.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 1:33 PM

Hilarious to see that some of the hipster Brooklyn Veganites are blissfully unaware that Brooklyn even exists outside of the boundaries of Williamsburg. Williamsburg is obviously a "pretend Manhattan," and if you venture too far south where the working class people and the Russian immigrants are, you can't play make believe any more.

I was forced to go to camp because both of my parents were working 10 hour days. Rich kids get to stay home and swim in their luxury swimming pools or go to space camp. Space camp, what a fucking joke. I hate space camp. In fact, I hate anyone who has ever gone to space camp or any parents that have ever sent their brats to space camp. I spent all summer watching Star Wars on VHS, while those brats are floating around in a zero-gravity chamber. Fuck space camp.

And then you woke up and realized you had to finish jerking off in your little boy briefs you put on to "get in the mood", because you passed out in the middle of the warm-up stroke.

Colin P Fitz has a shitty band to promote. One look at the beta male pussy and it seems highly unlikely that most here would be at all reticent about mocking him to his face.

I agree with that 3:53. Hipsters as a general rule are huge pussies, and that's of great convenience at a crowded bar or show. But I'm sure that tooling on a little bitch like Colin is within their comfort zone.

She's unattractive, she's untalented, she has a high school education and she's a sour cunt.

But I'm sure I mock her because she wouldn't give me her autograph and not because she's yet another in a long line of people who are famous in spite of adding nothing of value to the world.
