Ready for a surprise? Wet Hot American Summer only made a little over $292,000 at the box office when it hit theaters back in 2001. Yes, total. It never mattered, though. In the years since, Michael Showalter and David Wain's rambling story detailing the last day of camp in 1981 has become a mega cult classic. The lines are infinitely quotable. As the years go by, more and more of the film's actors become huge stars (we see you, Bradley Cooper).
Netflix has been teasing us for months with rumors of a WHAS reunion. Those dreams are finally becoming a reality. According to Deadline, filming has officially kicked off for an eight-episode, limited run Wet Hot American Summer series. If that news doesn't make you want to hump the fridge, then get a load of this: Virtually the entire cast will be returning, including Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, and Christopher Meloni.

We can't wait to see what kind of people they've all blossomed into. Hopefully they all made it their beeswax to get there by 9:30, because they're in their late thirties by now, and we just don't see any reason why they can't be places on time. (Deadline)
