Wet Hot American Masterpiece
title by: Planetdan
But he was certainly right.
Wet Hot American Summer is awesome. I won't do a movie review on it, because if i say it's awesome, then by jingle - RENT THIS FILM.
My friend Kaila kept trying to get me to watch it and i kept putting it off and off. i thought it would be some dumb Anchorman movie or something, even though it had Janeane Garaffalo and Paul Rudd in it. But lo and behold, when i finally did rent this movie out of sheer boredom, i was so pleasantly suprised, i sat in stupified realization that this is one of the greatest comedic satires ever made.
Yes, this movie is dumb. Yes, this movie is absurd. Yes, this movie pure genius.
This is a cult classic, my friends. Meatballs, EAT YOUR HEART OUT!!!!
Some people won't understand it's subtle humor that is not apparent on the surface. The humor in that this movie was a total joke to make, and it only took like a week to film. If you don't like this movie, fine. You obviously enjoy the "finer" things in life. Just don't coutner this post with some comment like, "It's no Dumb and Dumber," or ,"Did you ever see that movie, Old School? Now that was funny!" or pretty much anything with Will Farrell or Jim Carrey (before The Truman Show).
So if you're feeling like getting in a night of good laughs, rent this movie. Don't wait for it to repeat on Comedy Central - RENT IT TONIGHT. You will laugh your ass off, and be glad you did.
And if you're up for a companion movie to enhance your satiric comedy evening, then by all means rent Psycho Beach Party as well! Notice Claire from Six Feet Under is our main character!
