Nutty Professor [Blu-ray] (Sous-titres français) [Import]
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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.

He is very talented and shows it in this film!He nearly plays as the whole family and does a dam good job at it.This movie is very funny.His family are pigs and the fart scene goes over board as he takes his new girlfriend (pinkett) to his house for dinner.Also buddy love steals the show Eddie murphy's other character more of a wild and funny character who gets the job done with out trying also captures pinketts eye and she starts falling for buddy!
Buddy is exremely funny.The Reggie scene is great and probably the funniest scene.This is another eddie murphy classic, and sits up there as 1 of his best, not the best but 1 of his best.
3 1/2 stars for the mivie and 1/2 star for Eddie murpheys talent as all the roles he played , even a grandma!!
Also i will just say check out some other Eddie Murphy films as they are all great!
When the film began playing in theaters there was much ado about Eddie's character being obese and the fat jokes being offensive to those overweight. I don't see what all the hoopla was all about. The script handles all the overweight issue with balance and in the end Sherman realizes it's alright to be who you are so long as you are happy.
It was nice to see Jerry Lewis was involved in the production. This is one DVD that should be a great addition to anyone's comedy collection, especially if you like Eddie Murphy and Jerry Lewis.
