Wet Hot American Masterpiece

Maybe it was the talking can of mixed vegetables or the crack-den sequence, but I have to admit that the first time I saw Wet Hot American Summer, I didn't really get it. Sure, I laughed a few times, but my general reaction was one of confused bafflement. It's utter brilliance started its slow burn on my brain a few months later when I accidently watched it again on cable. After a few hundred more times on the Starz(!) channel, I was beginning to see the light. It's a couple years later, and it is now, without a doubt, one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen.

I only tell you this in case you haven't seen it, because today I was flipping channels and found it on Comedy Central. I actually made a loud gasp and just barely stopped short of making a "yes" fist-pump hand gesture. And since it is basic cable, it will be repeated ad infinitum, or ad nauseam depending on how you look at it. It's going to be a good summer for sitting inside and watching TV.

Best. Movie. Ever.

I would imagine, since it's on Comedy Central Now, that they'd cut out the brutally hot yet still comic sex scene between Michael Ian Black and That Guy From Alias. Which sucks because that was totally the best part of the whole movie. Except when That Guy From Oz humps the 'fridge. HAH!
