Here's something to chat about over hot dogs and fireworks this holiday weekend – the official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is here, and it's a feast of nostalgic (and not-so-clean) fun.
The cast alone is worth celebrating. In addition to Wet Hot's original players (Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, and director David Wain in an on-camera role), newcomers Kristen Wiig, Jordan Peele, H. Jon Benjamin, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Michael Cera, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Jon Hamm signed on for the prequel sequel, upping the wackiness exponentially.
Among other things, the Netflix original series promises the characters from the 2001 film are younger and hotter (or, you know, 14 years older and often wearing terrible wigs). Here are some of the highlights of the nutty trailer:

Well, what the hell was that?
A Deadly Adoption, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's secretive Lifetime movie project, wasn't strictly a parody of Lifetime movies.
It was, more accurately, an out-and-out Lifetime movie, just performed with an awareness of the easily mocked conventions of the genre, its clichéd situations and dialogue – "You're not supposed to be here! I told you to meet me at the cabin!" – all of it performed with a slight but very precise ironic distancing.
That gap, that distance, was so small it could only be measured metrically, perhaps in millimeters.

[YOUTUBE "ZXzoTZtKY0k"] To all fans of Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and/or Lifetime movies about stupid nice people who become the prey of crafty mean people: A 20-second teaser has been released by the cable network to promote their buzzy, top-secret project A Deadly Adoption.
The movie stars Ferrell, 47, and Wiig, 41, as a couple who take in a young pregnant women (90210 alum Jessica Lowndes) in the hopes of adopting her baby after it's born.
Judging from the trailer, which has Ferrell with a blood stain on his workout hoodie and Wiig lifting a pistol and taking aim, things go wrong.
