Wet Hot American Summer
- It rained 25 out of 29 days during filming of this movie.
- During the scene where Beth (Janeane Garofalo) is announcing which campers need to put their trunks out for an early bus, Janeane Garofalo improvised most of the names. You can hear her call for "David Ben-Gurion," who was the first Prime Minister of Israel. For many of the other names, she is reading from Camp Towanda's 5-year-club plaque.
- The owners of Camp Towanda (where the movie was filmed) were told that this was going to be a family comedy. They were mortified when they saw the final cut of the film.
- This movie was based on Camp Modin (Belgrade, Maine), the summer camp director David Wain went to.
- While Coop is listing for Katie all the reasons he loves her, one of the things he says is "I love it that sometimes for no reason you're late for shul." "Shul" is a Yiddish term that refers (sometimes colloquially) to a Jewish house of worship (also known as a synagogue or a temple).
- Although called wet hot, the credits thank the crew for surviving a cold, wet Pennsylvania spring. You can also see the actors' breaths at points during the movie.
- Bradley Cooper had to miss his graduation ceremony to film this movie.
- SPOILER: While a guest on "Live with Regis & Kelly" in 2010, Bradley Cooper was asked which of the many actresses he has co-starred with was his favorite on-screen kisser. Instead of an actress, he chose Michael Ian Black, with whom he shared a love scene in Wet Hot American Summer.
