In the scene where Tom first enters Summer's apartment, the camera focuses on a bowler hat with a green apple on top of it. This is a reference to the famous painting "The Son of Man" by René Magritte who is said earlier in the film to be one of Summer's favorite artists.

During the flashback to Summer's job selling ice cream, Tom can be seen waiting in line.

The film marks director Marc Webb's first full length feature film. He has previously directed numerous music videos.

The wedding occurs in San Pedro, CA.

The Smiths' Louder Than Bombs, The Jesus & Mary Chain's Psychocandy and Public Image Ltd.'s Album can been seen in Tom's childhood room.

SPOILER: The narrator states that Tom meets Summer on January 8th. Since it is 500 days, Tom lets go of Summer (and meets Autumn) on May 23rd of the next year.

During the office party, Summer and Tom get into a conversation about the validity of love. During the conversation, Summer makes a reference to Johann Wolfgang Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther. Her line, when the idea for Tom to sing comes up, is: "I nominate young Werther here."

Jean-Paul Vignon originally narrated the Swedish scene in French. In the final version Jonas Åkerlund is narrating in Swedish.

During the flashback to Summer's job selling ice cream, Tom can be seen waiting in line.

Ian Reed Kesler, who gets in a fight with Tom at the bar, is credited as 'douche'.

The studio never intended to include the documentary about love in the film, even going so far as to tell the director to not bother filming it. The audience reaction during the first test screening convinced them otherwise.

The documentary about love was originally much longer and included opinions from Summer, Rachel, Millie, and Tom's mother.

The wedding occurs in San Pedro, CA.

The New Hampshire greetings office and Tom's apartment were filmed in the same building.

According to the DVD commentary, the writer estimates that 75% of the film actually happened to him.
