The Netflix Review is back! Joined by a whole host of new weekly article series, look out for the newest Netflix Review every Monday. Look at the twitter page on Sunday evenings to find what film I'm watching that week.

This week, I decided to go all the way back to the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer in order to prepare for watching the new series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.

Netflix Review: Wet Hot American Summer

Now, any film widely known as a cult film has got reasons for it. Usually, it is because they are absolutely ridiculous, but lovable, and are insanely fun to watch. This film was no different.

Take a quick look down this cast list from IMDB and you will understand what I mean.

Now, aside from that, the best thing about this film is that it has a huge disregard for all of the following things:

  • Human Life
  • Common Sense
  • True Love
  • The Good Guy winning
  • Drug Abuse
  • Crime

For an actual plot, you probably don't want to watch this film, but this is a rough idea:

On the last day of camp in the summer of 1981, a group of councillors try to complete their unfinished business before heading home. This includes everything from getting laid by that special someone, to getting laid by just about anyone. Among the many characters are Beth (Janeane Garofalo) the camp director, Andy (Paul Rudd) the cool lifeguard with few moral standards and a big appetite for any woman on camp, and Gene (Christopher Meloni), the camp cook who has been a little strange since he came back from Vietnam.

If you watch this film, you will probably cry laughing. You will see everything from talking cans of vegetables, to dangerous waterfall rescues, to NASA's skylab. Why? Because it's Wet Hot American Summer, one of the most original films ever.
