This is Cooper’s first movie. It isn’t a rom-com per se, but it does contain a good dose of both romantic and comedic elements. It is a sultry summer in 1981 and a bunch of young people are experiencing their last day at camp.


Plenty of unfinished business is on the roster for the camp’s counsellors, one of whom is Ben (played by Bradley Cooper). Camp Firewood certainly does not shy from the heat – the movie contains many a seductive scene.


But, strangest of all, is camp director Beth falling for a local astrophysics professor who, in turn, is trying to save the entire camp from a piece of debris hurtling down from NASA’s Skylab.

Walberg make the movie more fun. Hollywood stardom, a failing movie career, and a reality dating show are key themes and elements in this engaging story about redemption, deception, and truth.


Todd secretly coaches his fame-chasing buddy on what to say and do during a major reality show. Todd’s inputs are shared over a miniature earpiece and help the contender become an audience favourite.

Sean Cw Johnson, Stephen O’Reilly, Jennifer Sky, Laura Regan, Kris Lemche, and Nick Mennell play important roles. Bradley Cooper as Travis Patterson is interesting to watch. The movie captures an all-too-human desire for fame and fortune.

Bradley Cooper is the cameraman named Steve. Other memorable artists in this production are Keith David, DJ Qualls, M. C. Gainey, Thomas Haden Church, Howard Hesseman, and Ken Jeong. The story is heavily stereotyped bordering on offensive (to women).

She likes them both but doesn’t quite know which one is right for her. Adding to the craziness is that both men are the total opposite of each other in personality.


Oddly enough, they are both aware of Kenna’s confusion, so jealousy gradually grows between the men and threatens to explode. Bradley Cooper plays one of the love interests, namely Jeff. Colleen Porch, David Gail, Kurt McKinney, and James Martin Kelly play key roles in the script.
