The Nutty Professor.

One of my favorite comedy classics is the original Nutty Professor starring Jerry Lewis. I recently bought the special edition on DVD and was impressed by the bonus features. It includes deleted scenes, bloopers, TV promos, a theatrical trailer and some additional test footage. Clearly, Jerry and the crew had a lot of fun making this movie as evidenced by the pranks pulled by the actors and even Jerry himself.
What really impressed me was the music, which takes full advantage of the DVD medium. When heard through a stereo system, the musical soundtrack takes on a surround-sound quality to give the Purple Pit scenes a totally new perspective. Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re sitting right there at the bar.
It’s awesome to see a comedy classic get the kind of treatment that makes watching the movie even more enjoyable.
