The summer-camp movie, circa 1980, hardly seems a viable enough genre to justify a parody, but in cult favorite Wet Hot American Summer (2001) director David Wain and his talented cast (Janeane Garofalo, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Michael Ian Black, Amy Poehler, to name a few) make up in enthusiasm and silliness what the movie lacks in relevance. A day in the life of Camp Firewood, Maine, the film's highlights include Christopher Meloni's creepy 'Nam vet ("Time to go fondle my sweaters") and a surreal afternoon excursion into town. Look out for Bradley Cooper pre-Hangover fame as a closeted musical director. The rest is pure "camp."  It screens at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Friday, June 10-Saturday, June 11 @ midnight | $9; $7 seniors | 617.734.2500 or
