Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot American Summer

In 2000, David Wain and Michael Showalter set out to make their first film, Wet Hot American Summer. It was a low-budget, independent comedy, and they cast their friends - many newcomers to the business - Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and many more. Released in 2001, it was panned by critics but has since become a cult classic, and those "friends" have gone on to become some of the biggest names in comedy. During the original shoot, over 25 hours of behind-the-scenes footage was shot, and it’s never been seen before - until now.
