Caution: Watch only if you enjoy happiness.

1. PSA: There is a behind-the-scenes documentary called Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot on Netflix that you need to watch RIGHT NOW.

2. If you’ve never seen the original 2001 comedy or the new Netflix series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, you should watch those too. But honestly that’s not necessary to enjoy this making-of.

Not much of the documentary is actually about the movie.

3. It’s 90 minutes of your favorite actors when they were young unknowns just screwing around at summer camp.

It’s as if Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, and Bradley Cooper were your college bros.

4. Literally, the cast all actually lived at a summer camp for five weeks.

Like they slept in the cabins and ate in the mess hall and had to use the camp showers! IT WAS CAMP.

5. And apparently they just drank beer all day.
