Eddie Murphy gives the "performances" of his career playing no less than seven roles in this uproarious Jekyll-and-Hyde comedy from Imagine Entertainment. Murphy stars as Dr. Sherman Klump, a kind, "calorically-challenged" genetics professor who longs to shed his 400-pound frame in order to win the heart of beautiful Jada Pinkett. So, with one swig of his experimental fat-reducing serum, Sherman becomes "Buddy Love", a fast-talking, pumped-up, plumped-down Don Juan. Can Sherman stop his buff alter ego before it's too late, or will Buddy have the last laugh? Boasting incredible special effects, a super soundtrack, and co-starring James Coburn, Larry Miller, Dave Chappelle and John Ales, this hilarious hit is worth its weight in fun!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Nutty Professor falls back on juvenile humor eagerly and often, but Eddie Murphy's consistently funny work in dual roles means more for audiences to love.

Common Sense Says
A dumb, offensive movie--a good one to skip.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film has many sexual references, a torrent of profanity, nasty insults (including fat jokes and racial epithets), and a misguided obsession with flatulence. The anally-fixated script, which is packed with smutty double entendres and jokes about "colon cleansing," may delight twelve-year-old boys, but parents may well be horrified that this is what now passes for family entertainment in Hollywood.
