TV Review: ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’

22 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix’s usage metrics remain shrouded in mystery, but one needn’t be a genius to see what attracted the streaming service to “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” an improbable and wholly silly prequel to a 2001 movie most notable for all the people in it who went on to bigger and better things. Victory here was delivered before production began just based on who the producers got to return or, impressively, join in the festivities, to the point where it’s almost easier to rattle off who isn’t involved than provide a comprehensive list of who is.

In terms of garnering attention, pretty much everything after that is sheer gravy. The conceit of doing a “prequel” 14 years later to a production that already featured adults playing teenagers is, of course, the big joke. But director David Wain and writer-star Michael Showalter go one better by actually »

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Review

22 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided for review purposes.

For a platform offering instant pop culture gratification, it’s not surprising that Netflix’s original programming slate has leaned heavily on two things: name recognition and wish fulfillment. Breaking into a crowded market of prestige dramas and genre TV? Bring in Kevin Spacey and the Wachowskis. Courting comedy and comic book fans? Resurrect Arrested Development and Daredevil. Improbably combining the appeal of both is Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, an eight-episode miniseries that acts as the prequel to a little-seen 2001 comedy starring a collection of erstwhile unknowns. Wet Hot American Summer was ridiculous, unpredictable, and hilarious. The same can be said of both the new Netflix miniseries, and how it came to be.

A lot has changed in the worlds of comedy, movies, and TV during the 14 years since Wet Hot American Summer was released. An entire cast of SNL stars has sprouted, »

‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’ Debuts Star-Studded Staff Orientation Film (Video)

16 July 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Summertime is sleep-away camp time, but a new mock orientation video makes it clear parents probably wouldn’t want to send their kiddies to “Wet Hot American Summer” getaway Camp Firewood. Netflix unveiled the star-studded camp counselor film advertising its upcoming prequel to the 2001 cult classic on Thursday, and the event series looks like more fun than rope-swinging into a lake. In the clip, viewers will get to know a little about Susie (Amy Poehler), Gail (Molly Shannon) and Neil (Joe Lo Truglio), among others. All we get from Vic (Ken Marino) is an off-camera “Suck my dick!” response to Neil’s. »

Netflix Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Trailer is Nostalgic Greatness

5 July 2015 6:35 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

With Wet Hot American Summer you tend to expect the unexpected, and that's exactly the route that the Netflix revival series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, has taken per the hilarious first trailer.

Netflix Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a prequel to the original film and set during the first day at Camp Firewood rather than the last. What makes this turning back of the clock hilarious is that the cast is substantially older and now playing younger versions of themselves from the original film.

Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter are all back from the Wet Hot American Summer movie to reprise their roles for the Netflix series. They are joined by newcomers Jon Hamm, »

'Wet Hot American Summer' Reboot Trailer Features All-Star Cast

2 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

After teasing the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer reboot with a goofy, VHS-tinted teaser, Netflix has offered an official trailer with a hilarious, enticing look at the star-studded prequel series, First Day of Camp.

The clip begins with talk of blossoming summer love and fun, as well as an uncomfortable Camp Firewood meeting that's literally crashed by Paul Rudd's surly, too-cool counselor Andy. When chastised for being a week late, Andy replies: "Whatever. It smells weird. Who beefed?" (Notably, the counselor supervisor is played by H. Jon Benjamin, and with any luck, »

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Trailer Is A Laugh Riot

2 July 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years of chatter about a prequel to David Wain’s 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer, Netflix finally stepped up to the plate and green-lit a miniseries reteaming the co-writer/director with a stacked cast of comedy all-stars. Now, the first full trailer for the series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, has arrived, and it’s an absolute riot.

The limited eight-episode series unfolds over the course of everyone’s first day at Camp Firewood back in the summer of 1981. Inexplicably, Wain was able to pull together literally everyone who appears in his movie, despite their staggeringly busy schedules, and also tap a bevy of newcomers for the prequel, including Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery and Jordan Peele.

Netflix has been having a killer year so far thanks to Marvel’s Daredevil, Grace and Frankie and the third seasons of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, »

Full Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Trailer Is Amazing

2 July 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After a brilliant VHS-tinged teaser, Netflix has released the first full trailer for the prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. This is the culmination of years of talk about a follow-up to the 2001 cult comedy film Wet Hot American Summer, as co-writer/director David Wain and his cast were keen on making a prequel in which the now fortysomething actors would be playing younger versions of their 2001 selves. They finally got to make it in the form of a Netflix miniseries, and result looks absolutely fantastic. As the title suggests, the eight half-hour episodes take place on the first day of camp back in 1981. Logistics be damned—Wain was able to wrangle nearly every single original cast member to reprise their roles, plus a slew of new faces like Jordan Peele, Kristen Wiig, and “introducing Jon Hamm.” This trailer highlights all of them, and it’s »

Adam and Naomi Scott on Fake Penises and Troubled Marriages in ‘The Overnight’

9 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’ve heard of the comedy “The Overnight,” odds are you’ve heard about the male nudity displayed by stars Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman. The latter is shown to be generously endowed while the former is … not. When asked at the film’s premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival if prosthetics were used, one of the stars was quick to answer. “Adam jumped up to say they were absolutely prosthetics, both of them,” says Naomi Scott, the film’s producer and Adam’s wife of 10 years. “He wanted to make that very clear.”

Set to play the Los Angeles Film Festival this week before a theatrical release on June 19, “The Overnight” tells the story of a couple (Scott and Taylor Schilling) who relocate with their young son to Seattle. When they meet Kurt (Schwartzman) and his son at a park, they’re excited by the possibility of a new friendship. »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for.

All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D.
