You may have noticed that the TNA picks have been few and far between lately. I suppose it's a lack of inspiration on my part. I haven't been moved by any of the old standards. It took something fresh and new to rejuvenate my love for the TNA classic. Genius: thy name is WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER.
Go see this movie. Go see it now. RUN, DON'T WALK! Your only regret will be the number of years you've lived that this movie wasn't around for you to watch. Seriously.
"The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve..."
Basically, put MEATBALLS in a blender and you've only got the beginning of what quickly becomes a summer camp "laff riot." Included are all the camp and TNA standards:
- make out sessions with hot counselors
- the misfit team gears up for "the big game"
- the talent show
- the crazy camp cook
- purse snatching
...you know, the basics.
As for the actual "T 'n A" in the movie, well, its merely suggested. The movie parodies summer camp films of the past which probably contained more "action". But you'll hardly miss it, and WHAS is funnier because of it. It's the first contemporary film to receive a TNA pick, by the way.
