Definitely pick this one up and pass on the sequel as that one overdoses on the fart jokes. This one uses a multi-joke formula all the way to success.
As for the movie, The Nutty Professor is crudely funny and highly enjoyable. Murphy is the only reason to watch the movie since he is on screen nearly the entire time in one character or another, and he never disappoints in any of the roles he plays. The plot is largely superfluous because the real treat of the movie is watching Murphy vamp and carry-on as only this comedic superstar can. This movie is Eddie Murphy on steroids and that makes for one hugely entertaining romp. If you wish to see one of the most impressive performances in cinema, catch The Nutty Professor and simply marvel at Murphy. Eddie hasn't always chosen the best parts but this tour-de-force is simply stunning.
Sherman Klump, a very bright professor who is also dealing with an obesity issue, finds himself falling for a colleague, Miss Carla Perdy. Klump is convinced that he doesn't have a chance with Carla because of his appearance. He believes that he needs to change himself in order to get Carla to appreciate him so he decides to try a formula, which he has been testing on hamsters, on himself. The formula is a DNA restructuring chemical and when it is ingested by Klump he drops 300 pounds immediately. This skinny, obnoxious and loud version of Professor Klump comes to be known as Buddy Love. Buddy is very critical of people, especially obese people, and he is determined to take over Klump's body and his life.
This movies main objective is to show that you should be happy with yourself. The jokes in this film were also carefully thought through so they wouldn't offend most viewers, especially overweight viewers. I found this movie to be more enjoyable than the original, starring Jerry Lewis, which has very few similarities with this version. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a little comic relief.
