The late movie critic Roger Ebert really hated Wet Hot American Summer when it was released in 2001.
So much in fact that his review was a new version of Allan Sherman’s “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh” with lyrics outlining his disgust for the film that has gone on to gain cult status and inspire an upcoming Netflix series debuting July 31.
The review begins:
Here I am at “Wet Hot American Summah.”
Wow I hate it
Except the astrophysicist David Hyde Pierce.”
He goes on to call the movie an “idiotic motion picture” and give it one star.
