Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, this comedy follows a group of counselors trying to complete their unfinished business before the day ends. The entire summer of pent-up sexual frustrations, unresolved post-traumatic stress, pending separations and of course, the talent show, all weigh heavily on the minds and groins of counselors and campers alike. At the center of the action is the camp director Beth (Janeane Garofalo) who must keep order while falling in love with local astrophysics expert, Associate Professor Neuman (David Hyde Pierce), who in turn is trying to save the camp from a deadly, falling piece of a NASA space station. The film simultaneously embraces, parodies and subverts the '70s and '80s summer camp genre, while putting forth a wholly new comic sensibility.
