Fermat's Last Theorem

from moviemistakes.com

Some trivia about the Faustian film "Bedazzled" (which came out in the year 2000 and stars Elizabeth Hurley and Brendan Frazier):

"This is not a mistake but something clever.
When the Devil was a schoolteacher, the first equation on the board was Fermat's Last Theorem
(X to the Nth + Y to the Nth = Z to the Nth for N is greater than 2).
It was proven in 1993 that there is no integer solution to this equation; exactly the kind of problem the Devil would give to an algebra class, but not really expected in your standard Hollywood film."
