Trivia

In reprising his role as Ben, Bradley Cooper shot all his scenes in one day. Initially, Cooper wasn't able to fly to the set in Los Angeles due to commitments with a Broadway play. The filmmakers opted to shoot his scenes in New York City until Cooper was nominated at the 87th Annual Academy Awards, prompting him to travel to Los Angeles. The plan was revamped to shoot Cooper's scenes in a single day, which was the last day of the show's production, on February 26, 2015. See more »

Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp
1 August 2015 | by MrPorkuzSee all my reviews

Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp is the newest Netflix original series and it is a continuation of the 2001 Film Wet Hot American Summer. The film has many of the same stars and has some new ones such as Chris Pine, Jason Schwarzmann, Michael Cera and numerous other recognizable stars. The series explores life at summer camp to and extreme level and also to a some what relatable level at some times however for the most part the series is absurd and unrealistic which is not necessarily a bad thing as most of the comic aspects of the film rely on dry humor and the crazy things the characters do. The characters feel like cartoon characters and the whole show feels like a real life cartoon, I could not help but think of Cartoon Network's Camp Lazloo when I watched this which is a very unique new type of comedy from the traditional less absurd comedies such as Big Bang Theory and Silicon Valley. The series will not be as enjoyable to all who do not enjoy this ridiculous humor however the stunning cast and filmography will be a definite treat.

8.5/10
