** The music theme of ''Trading Places'' is the Overture to ''Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro''. The Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart opera is about a servant who outwits his master. As Louis leaves his office, he whistles the beginning of the aria "Se vuol ballare", in which the servant reveals his plan. Also, the movie's title has a double meaning. It not only refers to the main plot in which two men are forced to switch lives, but also to the climax, which plays out at the New York Mercantile Exchange: a trading place.

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Italians love Trading Places]]: ALWAYS re-aired in Italy during the Christmas Eve of its - although vague - Christmas theme... [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar despite the Precision F Strike and Fan Service tropes listed in the main page.]] To the point that Italians joke about "it's not Christmas without Trading Places".

* OlderThanTheyThink: The premise of ''Trading Places'', where two wealthy businessmen bet over whether heredity or environment makes a gentleman, and proving it by taking a bum off the street and making him sophisticated, was previously tackled in Film/TheThreeStooges short "Hoi Polloi".
** And funnily enough, nature rather than nurture wins out in that one.

*** Older than THAT, even. The story bears strong similarities to the Book of Job (God and the Devil make a bet about whether Job will stay faithful when God ruins his life in every conceivable way), right down to them just doing it because they were bored. Job is probably the inspiration for all stories of this type, come to think of it.

* UnbuiltTrope: The 90s and 2000s would later feature lots of comedies where a JiveTurkey of a black man is made part of a white world and 'shakes things up'. In this film, there's less making fun of 'stuffy white people' and the black character actually proves to be a good businessman - fitting very well into the world.
