Wet Hot American Summer •••• [four out of five]

WHAS is recognizable to any State fan… but not immediately.  …  It could be mixed bag of strange and hilarious, but it was rarely uninteresting and it was always 100% more inventive than what most sketch TV had to offer, then and now.  When The State went off the air, members resurfaced here and there, but it wasn’t until Wet Hot American Summer – where the whole crew reappeared, including show director / editor David Wain – that it seemed like we might get a proper followup.

And it happens, but only after making you believe that this might be an actual movie.  To a casual viewer that could make the weirdness seem out of left field, but it was totally a payoff worth waiting for for State fans…•
