The Nutty Professor

Trivia: While the principal of the school is going through the list of everyone performing at the prom, he mentions a comedy duo, and says "Oh, I thought they split up." A wry reference to the earlier break up of Martin & Lewis.

Trivia: When Professor Kelp holds the pile of tests and fantasizes about Stella as she stands in the doorway waiting for the stream of students, the test facing the camera has a caricature of Jerry Lewis. (00:52:20)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Jerry Lewis makes his special drink and it is the consistency of a milk-shake. Later in the movie he makes the same drink and it looks like cloudy water.
