The weekends on All Things Considered series Movies I’ve Seen A Million Times features filmmakers, actors, writers and directors talking about the movies that they never get tired of watching.

For actress Kristen Bell, whose credits include the TV show Veronica Mars, the films Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Hit and Run, which opened in theaters this weekend, the movie she could watch a million times is the comedy Wet Hot American Summer. “It’s basically about one crazy summer of everybody trying not to get killed,” Bell says.

Interview Highlights

On when she saw it for the first time

“I saw it when I was living in New York. I didn’t know anything about it, I just saw this weird, vintage-looking billboard and I thought, ‘Oh, this might be funny.’ And I went in and absolutely had the time of my life.”

On why she loves Wet Hot American Summer

“I loved that it danced this line of being so familiar and relatable and real, yet being absolutely, ridiculously comedic and out of this world and broad.”
