Trivia: The Nutty Professor
- AFIS 100 Years 100 Laughs: #99
- Career Resurrection: The 1996 remake was Eddie Murphy's comeback after years of decline.
- Disowned Adaptation: Jerry Lewis was supportive of Eddie Murphy's remake until he saw how much Toilet Humor there was. However, he would change his mind about it by 2009.
- Reality Subtext: Siskel and Ebert noted that the film came off a bit like an apology from Murphy for much of his recent work, with Buddy Love being the typical unsympathetic character he'd spent a lot of time playing, while Professor Klump is a more likable character that people want to see more of.
- Throw It In: Much of the dialogue between Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle was improvised.
