Pop Culture Happy Hour: 'Wet Hot American Summer'

NPR - 8/7/15

Given that Wet Hot American Summer came out in 2001, given that it starred twentysomething actors playing teenagers at summer camp, given that its box-office grosses were in the low six-figures, and given that many of the movie's stars have gone on to much bigger things, how on earth is such a reunion even possible? LISTEN HERE

The Hotwives Of Las Vegas are just as refined as their Orlando counterparts

AV Club - 8/6/15

The series has updated its name to Hotwives Of Las Vegas, swapping one gold-plated, McMansioned hellscape for another. Tymberlee Hill’s Phe Phe is the throughline character that the series follows from Florida to Nevada. Angela Kinsey, Casey Wilson, and Andrea Savage are also returning, but have been recast into new roles, which should work fine seeing as these characters look just as awesomely awful as their previous incarnations. READ MORE

Behind the Music of ‘Wet Hot American Summer’

Newsweek - 8/4/15

Viewers of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp will likely find themselves playing Name That Tune. But Shazam searches will be unsuccessful; from the Broadway musical, Electro City, that the counselors perform to the acoustic singalong that Paul Rudd’s character leads at a party, all of the period-sounding songs were composed by Craig Wedren, a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. READ MORE

The Best Bits from Sketch Comedy Anthology Movies

IFC - 8/4/15

The Ten: David Wain’s sketch movie based on the Ten Commandments has an excellent ensemble cast (Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux, Jon Hamm, Winona Ryder and members of The State). But the standout sequence is “Lying Rhino.” For one thing, in the live-action movie, this is the cartoon segment — animated by Augenblick Studios. For another thing, it stars Jon Benjamin. Lastly, there’s a deadly wiener-dog sex orgy. WATCH HERE

An Ode to Wet Hot American Summer's Absurd Theme Song

GQ - 8/3/15

Like Wet Hot American Summer, it's not quite clear what “Jane” is doing when it starts. "Jane," a 1979 song by Jefferson Starship, opens the 2001 movie Wet Hot American Summer as well as the Netflix's new prequel series for the show. "Jane" is used in every episode of the series in some fashion—and for every beat of its four minutes and ten seconds, “Jane” is a perfect, complex, trash-gem of a work of art. READ MORE

The New Yorker - 7/31/15

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Review

Paste - 7/31/15

“Camp Firewood is more than a summer camp. Camp Firewood is an idea, a promise, a way of life.” In the almost decade and a half since Wet Hot American Summer has come out, this has proven true. The fact that we get to visit Camp Firewood once again is incredible enough, but the fact that this world remains just as hilarious as we left it is close to a miracle. READ MORE

How Wet Hot American Summer redeemed Netflix’s comedic reputation

Ars Technica - 7/31/15

First Day of Camp is a pretty big deal for Netflix. For starters, it's good—really, it's hilarious—but it also sees Netflix making a valuable detour that may very well define its future as a comedy outlet. You only need to watch a few minutes of WHAS to see Netflix kiss that aspiration goodbye. Netflix's dive into an early '80s summer camp feels like a real step toward streaming comedy's future. READ MORE

'Wet Hot American Summer' on Netflix -- ready your high tolerance for profane comedy

Los Angeles Times - 7/30/15

“Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” premieres Friday on Netflix, where over the course of eight episodes it will weave its fantastically tangled, incredibly busy tale of a single day. I found it all funny, and even strangely compelling; it has crazy multi-thread narrative thrust. (It is like the “Ulysses” of camp-movie parodies in this respect.) READ MORE

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and the Complications of Revivals

Vulture - 7/30/15

Revival shows feel a little like an unfair question: If we met each other now, would we still be friends? Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp reminds us of this in its opening moments. "Camp Firewood is more than a summer camp. Camp Firewood is an idea," we're told. That's true. It's just a bigger idea, maybe, than the show realizes. READ MORE

Janeane Garofalo on Wet Hot American Summer’s Cult Status and Quitting the Internet

Time - 7/30/15

Janeane Garofalo doesn’t know when she’ll watch all of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the eight-episode prequel to the 2001 cult film she starred in, which begins streaming on Netflix this Friday. That’s because she doesn’t use the Internet anymore. Streaming services and smartphone technology aren’t the only things that have changed since Wet Hot American Summer premiered 14 years ago. The film’s intense cult following? Garofalo already predicted that back when she was making the movie. READ MORE

High Camp: The Giddy, Goofy Return of ‘Wet Hot American Summer'

Grantland - 7/30/15

For the dozens of other stars jostling each other in the credits, First Day of Camp represents a much-needed breather from our frenzied, over-the-top television age. As a fan of the original film, I’m happy to say that First Day of Camp is plenty enjoyable and a worthy follow-up to a movie that has grown cultishly popular in the years since its release. But as fun as it is to watch, it appears to have been 10 times as much fun to make. READ MORE

The session that ends in Wet Hot American Summer is just getting started in First Day Of Camp.

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: On the set of the prequel

Entertainment Weekly - 7/28/15

It’s a crisp afternoon in February, but summer has come early to the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. Specifically, the summer of ’81. For the past seven weeks, the venue’s rolling grounds have been repurposed as the set of the Netflix prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Kids in striped shirts and knee-high socks have been tossing Frisbees and facing off in burping contests. Adults in cutoffs and sleeveless shirts, playing teenagers, have been smoking cigs, sucking face, and getting up to assorted kinds of no good. READ MORE

First look Netflix review: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

VODzilla - 7/28/15

14 years of devotion deserves its prizes, yet it’s rare for such an undeniably niche fan base to be so richly rewarded. 14 years and it’s now Netflix that chooses to rechristen the gates of Camp Firewood for an eight episode series. Now, when its cast have gone on to become Marvel heroes and Oscar nominees. Yet each collaborator here returns to set as if the cameras had never stopped rolling, proving First Day of Camp to be both a treasure to its fans and a wonder to the uninitiated. READ MORE

Review: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Seems Like Old Times

Time - 7/28/15

Even by the standards of today’s reboot/remake/remodel culture, there are enough layers of nostalgia in First Day of Camp to rend the fabric of space-time. It’s a 2015 prequel to a 2001 movie, set in 1981. To watch this reunion-cum-origin-story, with its middle-aged original cast putting on teenage drag again, is to feel a tug of memory for the aughts and the ’90s heyday of MTV’s The State and the ’70s and ’80s camp comedies it lovingly spoofs. If this eight-episode series were any more dense with resonances across time, it would be directed by Terrence Malick and have a prologue involving dinosaurs. READ MORE

'Wet Hot American Summer' Prequel Creator and Cast Speak About Its Netflix Revival

Newsweek - 7/27/15

The series does more than pick up where Wet Hot American Summer left off; it returns to before that film takes place, to the start of Summer '81 at Camp Firewood, a fictional, mostly Jewish sleepaway camp in Maine. The big joke is that the actors, many of whom are in their 40s, have all aged a decade and a half, but are playing younger. READ MORE

The Wet Hot Reunion’s Insanely Packed Yearbook

Wired - 7/27/15

Between high camp and low camp, there’s summer camp. And on Friday, Netflix is rewarding fans of comedy crew The State’s 2001 cult film, Wet Hot American Summer, with an eight-episode reunion series. Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp rewinds viewers to Camp Firewood in the summer of 1981. In the intervening years the cast has astonishingly accomplished—so much so that it’s hard to tell whether the alumni or the newcomers are bigger stars.

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Review

Paste - 7/22/15

Perhaps the best thing I can say about First Day of Camp, other than that it’s consistently hilarious, is that it hardly ever repeats the movie. It finds entirely new territory to explore with the same absurd touch of the original. It’s an almost seamless continuation of a beloved classic, but also weird and hilarious enough on its own to work for somebody who’s never seen the movie. Even the toughest internet critic will struggle to find something to complain about. READ MORE

Flash forward to today and you have one of those rare circumstances where the prequel is better than the original. WATCH HERE

Review: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

The Verge - 7/22/15

What makes Netflix's prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp so doubly insane is that so much of it is built around trying to explain that nonsense. For anyone who has cultishly memorized every line of the original film, no matter how meaningless (guilty), the rewards are plentiful. There are enough cameos and stunt castings to merit a steady clip of "holy shit"s. (Yes, there are three Mad Men alums in this show, and they are deployed perfectly.) READ MORE

The Hollywood Reporter - 7/21/15

Netflix’s very funny "Wet Hot American Summer" revival revisits the denizens of Camp Firewood fourteen years later and two months earlier.
