What Iâ€™ve Been Watching: Wet Hot American Summer
Rewatched recently to prep for the upcoming Netflix series (which, watch the trailer: absolutely hilarious idea to make this a prequel with all the same actors, 15 years older). On this viewing, found the film much, much funnier than the first timeâ€”and I liked the first time pretty well.
The first time I watched it, I hadnâ€™t yet seen Sleepaway Camp, so I missed some of the references to that. The first time I watched it, I also didnâ€™t appreciate just how much Christopher Meloni is the star of the movie. What an amazing performance he turns in here. And what a cast otherwise!
I donâ€™t have many deep thoughts to share about the movie beyond thatâ€”writing deeply about comedy is challengingâ€”other than to recommend that anyone who hasnâ€™t seen this movie see it and that I look forward to the relaunch.
