YMMV: Wet Hot American Summer

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The whole soundtrack and score, packed with cheesy, late-'70s-to-very-early-'80s hits, easily qualifies, but the true Crowning Music has to be the tailor-made '80s-movie-training-montage original song "Higher and Higher".
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Gene. Andy is certainly one too. And J.J., and....
    • As one reviewer put it "You don't just have a "favourite character" with this film. You have at least four."
  • Fan Disservice: The only actual sex scene in the movie is man-on-man, and it's pretty intense. Although some people will consider this to be Fanservice.
  • Values Dissonance: Parodied. The film features a gay wedding, which nobody finds odd or remarkable. In 1981. The two counselors who you think are going to bully the new couple actually go out and buy them a wedding gift from Crate & Barrel.
  • The Woobie: Coop. He's a classic case of "nice guys finish last", especially at the very end.
