Product Description


Tom Shadyac (Liar Liar) directed Eddie Murphy in his raucous and inventive "comeback" film, a loose remake of the 1963 Jerry Lewis original. Murphy puts on full-body makeup to play Sherman Klump, a grossly fat college chemistry professor who creates a drug that releases the skinny person within. As in the original (when Lewis morphed into a caricature of former partner Dean Martin) the thin scenes are the most interesting, as the thrill of being handsome turns this sweet schlep into a club-crawling creep named Buddy Love. Jada Pinkett is the dream girl who loves Klump for himself, even after the potion wears off. Apart from some juicy fart jokes, a virtual trumpet concerto that erupts during a virtuoso family dinner scene (in which Murphy plays several roles), the humor is fairly gentle--although young children may find the presto-chango makeup effects alarming. For an effective, flat-out horror treatment of a similar theme, try the Stephen King adaptation Thinner. --David Chute --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
Reviewed Date: November 2003
Studio: Universal Studios
Genre: Comedy
Exposure: Color
Running Time: 96 Minutes
Rating: PG-13
Release Year: 1996
Directed By: Tom Shadyac
Starring: Eddie Murphy and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The movie takes place in a college town where Eddie Murphy plays Sherman Klump a 400 pound Professor that is in love with Professor Carla Purty played by Jada Pinkett- Smith. Carla sees Professor Klump as the beautiful person that he is.
The Nutty Professor is a very well put together film with Eddie Murphy playing seven different roles. If you want to see a good comedy The Nutty Professor is for you. There are some scene's that really put down overweight people. I have always been overweight and I did not take the scene's offensively but some people may.
There are some parts of the movie some people could find inappropriate. You may want to watch the movie before letting your children enjoy the comedy.
I give The Nutty Professor 5 stars for any adult. It is just really a funny movie any adult could find humor in. But on the other hand I give the movie a 3 ½ for children, a child being anyone under the age of 18, because of the inappropriate actions in the movie.

Sherman Klump (Eddie Murphy) is a professor who is nutty. Ha! He has come up with a potion that reduces body weight and mass. Well, good! Klump has tried exercising, but used a Snickers bar as a weight. Deep depression set in after he met the woman of his dreams (Jada Pinkett-Smith) at the university. You should have seen the amount of M&M's he poured into his mouth. It was diabolical. I recall the scene where he ate dinner with his family at home and they were just disrespectful. The family must have forced out many ba-deeps and laughed about it. I thought I was getting sick. After that things just got worse for the professor. He went on a date with the woman of his dreams at a comedy club and the comedian made fun of him. "It's a full moon tonight!" Got to love that Dave Chappelle. Then Professor Klump drank his potion and became Buddy Love. An outgoing, noisy scumbag who was a completely different person from the loving Sherman. Jekyll and Hyde! Terrible! Another sequence showed Sherman Klump growing bigger and he had stomach trouble. You need to avoid the gas that spreads and blows everybody away like a tornado and then some fool ignites a match! Foolery! This movie isn't for everybody. If I want to see people with stomach-aches, I'll go to a buffet.

I have read all reviews carefully and want to voice my opinion regarding this movie. I am an extremely overweight woman. So be it. I've accepted that and gone on with my life, but this has taken many years of trying to be someone I will never be and finally understanding that it is the person inside that counts. Those who can't see that, well they aren't worth my time. The first time I saw this movie and before we got to the end, I was a bit offended by the fat jokes, but more than being offended, I was there with Sherman. I have been the butt of many fat jokes over the years so I felt his pain. I felt the pain of Carla Purty as she sat helplessly with Sherman in that nightclub. That my friends is a sign of a well-acted, well-written movie. Yeah, sometimes we hurt! If you don't listen to all but the last few minutes of this comedy, the message at the end is important. Accept yourself, then others can accept you. Other than that, I found this movie totally delightful, funny and in true Eddie Murphy form. I am simply amazed at how versatile this actor is and he he portray so many different characters yet you find yourself absorbed in them and you start to think that they are real actors (someone other than Murphy). As far as one reviewer's comments regarding the portrayal of black people with no table manners. I'll just say I'm Caucasian and I have family members who act as bad as the Klumps did at dinner. Actually, to me, the first time I saw the movie, the dinner scenes were more offensive to me than the nightclub scene, but the second time around, I went with the flow and laughed so hard at mama, Cletus and grandma (all portrayed by Murphy). I think you need to watch this movie with an open mind. I think it just might have opened some "skinny" eyes to the pain that some of us fat folks go through and makes some of us realize we really have to only to make our own self's happy. Watch it and enjoy!

If Roseanne or Drew Carey or John Goodman or Louie Anderson or Oprah made a movie that portrayed African American's as Uncle Tom's, Aunt Jamima's, pimps or any other stereotype, there would be an uproar. Yet the last acceptable prejudice, "fatism" seems a fair target for a man who should know better. Obesity is a disease. A disease with no cure and no successful treatment. When the word diet pops in your mind, remember that only 5% of people that go on diets are able to keep the weight off. This number includes the "normal" people who need to lose only a few pounds. Most people gain back more weight than they have lost. Americans, the most diet conscious people on earth, have more fat people than "normal" people. Fat is the norm, yet it is fine to portray fat people as ugly, socially inept, clumsy objects of ridicule. During the last 50 years, we have identified many prejudices and have tried to right the wrongs of our society. Don't let the last and possibly the greatest (no pun intended) prejudice continue. Boycott this movie and all movies that ridicule others because of their physical appearance. Eddie is at it again - with Laugh at Fat People II aka Nutty Rrofessor 2. After he finishes this he will be doing "Those Crazy Cripples" and "The Deformed Morons"...
