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 »

stupider and funnier
13 February 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

In 2001, 'Wet Hot American Summer' introduces a group of relatively unknown young comedic actors. Some of them played teenage camp counselors despite being too old. Fifteen years later, most return to play the same characters in a prequel during their first day at Camp Firewood in the summer of 1981. The time bending silliness of that construction is boldly inventive and utterly hilarious. On top of that, this eight-episode Netflix series doubles down and goes even more ridiculous. The plot is insane. The jokes are even broader. The original confused me on my first viewing. Its satirical take isn't consistent enough and the varying range of comedy left me a little discombobulated. The original is inconsistently awkward funny but this time around, the gang is going completely nuts. They are not holding back and it is glorious.
