There are many, many amusing scenes of teenage summer camp life as portrayed by actors who are a decade (or more) removed from actually being teenagers. An incredibly star-studded cast all have great fun with silly tropes from teen movies. Paul Rudd is hilarious as a hot teenage boy.*
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home with Olivia, who recommended it.

I know I've seen this movie but I don't remember a single thing about it, other than that Janeane Garofalo is in it. I should maybe watch it again because it has a lot of actors I like, including Ken Marino (Vinnie Van Lowe), whom I've loved since his days with "The State."
I was amazed at the number of now famous actors in this movie. Bradly Cooper is in it, speaking of gay male sex scenes.
But Paul Rudd has a scene where he totally does the adolescent boy I-don't-want-to-clean-up-the-mess-I-made. And I will remember that scene for a long time.
Vinnie! Oh boy humor. And glad you enjoyed!
