VIDEO: Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler & More Reunite to Talk WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER

Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Michael Ian Black, and other cast members from the 2001 film "Wet Hot American Summer" and the upcoming Netflix prequel laugh with TODAY's Willie Geist about what it was like to film the series 15 years later.

The stars also react to how little the original film made at the box office (only to make it up later with a cult following), and film critic Roger Ebert taking the time to rhyme his panning of the movie. Watch the clip below!

The Netflix's original movie premieres Friday, July 31 at 12:01am PT. 

From co-creators Michael Showalter and David Wain, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FIRST DAY OF CAMP is the prequel series to their 2001 film that became a cult phenomenon. While the film took place on the last day of camp at Camp Firewood, the series takes place on the first day of camp, back in 1981. The series consists of eight half-hour episodes.
