The Nutty Professor is one of Jerry Lewis,s great movies. Jerry Lewis plays Julius F. Kelp a shy Bumbling Chemistry teacher. Stella Stevens plays Stella Purdy a student in professor Kelp,s chemistry class. Professor Kelp gets bullied by one of his big students. Then he tries the gym to bulk up that does not work. Then he tries chemistry to fix his problem. Than he makes a formula that turns him into Buddy Love. Buddy gets close to Stella but unfortunately the potion,s formula is unstable and Buddy Keeps slipping back into Professor Kelp at the most embarrassing moments. Give this one shot.

Before Eddie Murphy played the role, Jerry Lewis perfected it. If you loved Murphy in "The Nutty Professor," you'll love the original.

Is this a guy movie or a chick flick?

Imagine doling out a few dollars to take your best gal to a Saturday picture in 1963, and Jerry Lewis was the star. It is a guy's movie, right? It has slapstick, womanizing, and even good music. Certainly a guy would love this, but could a woman? Since when is Jerry Lewis known for making a chick flick? Yes! The underlying tale may be a complex discussion of genetic manipulation, but the main story is love.

As stereotypical guy movies and chick flicks tend to be more accepted by the other gender than we prefer sometimes to admit, "The Nutty Professor" has it all.

Can awkward scientist Professor Julius Kelp woo his student, the charming and beautiful Stella Purdy (played by Donna Reed look-alike and Playboy model Stella Stevens)? What about the man of every hour, Buddy Love, Kelp's chemically discovered alter-ego? Who will Stella love?

Problems ensue when Kelp's bird eats the formula for the Kelp-Love transformation. His parents have a copy, but will there be enough for Kelp to become Love for his big moment performing on stage.

Lewis does a fine job holding down both roles. Stevens never steals the show. Even though someone like her being smitten by Professor Kelp is hard to swallow, she never camps it up to ruin the fantasy.

Trivia bit:

Professor John Frink, the Hank Azaria character on TV's "The Simpsons" is based on Lewis' Kelp.

I fully recommend "The Nutty Professor."

The movie is fantastic. Don't get me wrong, it's a five-star Jerry Lewis bash! However I'm rating the actual Blu-ray copy I have. This is one of the worse Blurays I've bought. Most seem like upconverted DVDs, this however is terrible. Very grainy. A lot of the background is extremely grainy. My dvd copy is far superior. Maybe it's my player, but it just doesn't seem to be a remastered classic. Maybe the 50th anniversary is better....

This has got to be the best JL movie. To take Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde and adapt it to this comedy is pure genius. The blu ray version is transfered picture perfect and the colors explode. The extras are just icing on the cake. Jerry and company are a pure joy to watch.

In this Jekyll and Hyde story, the professor bears some resemblance to Frederic March's Mr. Hyde (1931); is this Jerry's sense of irony? The movie's theme song is Stella By Starlight, perhaps reflecting the comedian's feelings for his beautiful co-star Stella Stevens.

A great comedy, beautifully filmed, which showcases the incredible talent of Jerry Lewis and the beauty of a young Stella Stevens. I highly recommend getting the Blu-Ray as the picture quality is excellent and it is packed with extras. This is a classic to own.

I love the Eddie Murphy remake of this film, but this original is easily just as good. Murphy's film did not improve upon the original in any way, it just gave a different approach to it. For anyone who enjoys the Eddie Murphy film, you MUST see this too.
