This shamefully underpromoted, gloriously silly romp made me laugh harder than any other movie this summer...this blissfully unimportant movie starts in a deceptively low key, gradually unveiling its total lunacy.

Where is Jason Voorhess, the hockey-masked killer of Camp Crystal Lake, when you really need him?
July 8, 2014
Hilarious but raunchy parody is filled with sex, profanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

...has its moments, but considering the cast there should be far more of them.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 28, 2011
The skewering of underdog sports clichés, horny teen staples and Vietnam-trauma melodrama is long overdue and perfectly irreverent in execution.
July 23, 2007
This was always more or less destined to be a cult comedy, passed along enthusiastically on video/DVD.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

A dumb - and fitfully funny - send-up of an already dumb genre.
Full Review | Original Score: B-

Destined to become a clut classic.

When the jokes work, they really work.

That whooshing sound you hear is the majority of the jokes in Wet Hot American Summer sailing right over my head.

Once you get into the flow with Wain and Showalter and understand what they're trying to do, the movie is pretty damn funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 7, 2002
Ensemble spoof of '80s flicks such as Meatballs and Little Darlings is a camp comedy -- in more ways than one.

July 9, 2002
The funniest cinematic camp experience since Pugsley and Wednesday freaked everyone out with their rendition of the first Thanksgiving in "Addams Family Values."
| Original Score: 8/10
June 28, 2002
This one won't have any studios reaching for their checkbooks to order another film. Very unfortunate.
February 25, 2002
If ever a movie was destined for Dazed and Confused or Caddyshack status, Wet Hot American Summer is an obvious choice.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 8, 2002
For all its failings, Wet Hot maintains energy and high spirits over most of its length. The trouble is, such energy and spirits are not infectious, and the movies it mocks were better.

This is supposed to be funny? It was so depressing I almost started to cry.

December 7, 2001
A putrid, insipid, morbidly unfunny comedy.
October 12, 2001
There are times when the only sporadically funny comedy threatens to become worse than the increasingly horrid Meatballs sequels.
