Audio problem: In the beginning of the movie when Clark is preparing to light the Bar-B-Q, He squirts charcoal fluid out of a plastic bottle. Then Ellen squirts more fluid onto the coals out of the same plastic bottle. Listen to the sound; it is the distinctive sound of a metal charcoal lighter fluid bottle. (00:07:45)

Trivia: Ellen's pornographic movie's name seems to translate in different ways on different versions of the movie. On DVD the caption reads "The Wet Hot Wife," on the TV Version, it reads "Slut In The Shower," and on some VHS versions the caption reads "The Whore In The Hot Tub."

Question: In the opening credits, Clark's passport has the name "Clark W Griswald" instead of Griswold. Was this just intended because Clark can never seem to do anything right, or even get it fixed when it's wrong? (like the Wagon Queen Family Truckster he ended up buying even though that's not the car he ordered...?).

Answer: The answer could be any of those suggestions. It could also very well be a movie mistake. It's not uncommon for character names to be misspelled, either on some document or in the cast credits.
