    Synopsis


    The Nutty Professor
    Eddie Murphy gives one of Jerry Lewis' best-remembered vehicles a 1990s overhaul in this hit comedy. Sherman Klump (Murphy) is a college professor and respected biochemistry researcher who is kind, considerate, and a genuinely nice guy. Sherman is also appallingly overweight; coupled with the fact that he's painfully shy and a bit clumsy, his romantic prospects are rather bleak. When Sherman finds himself working with a pretty graduate student, Carla Purty (Jada Pinkett), he falls in love and is eager to impress her, but at an upscale nightclub, his weight attracts the attention of an insult comic (Dave Chappelle) and his bumbling spoils the evening. Sherman's latest project is a genetic weight loss formula, and despondent over his failure to win Carla's heart, he subjects himself to a massive dose. Suddenly, Sherman is transformed into the slim, trim, and handsome Buddy Love; however, the drug also boosts his testosterone level, turning the likable Sherman into the arrogant, skirt-chasing Buddy. In addition to playing Sherman and Buddy, Eddie Murphy also plays four other members of the porcine Klump family, as well as eccentric exercise guru Lance Perkins. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Great Performance for Eddie Murphy

      I initially bought this video in VHS format and thoroughly enjoyed it a number of years ago playing on a CRT TV based home theatre system. With the advent of large HD television for home theatre, VHS no longer looked good on the big screen so I decided a number of years ago to replace my entire VHS collection with DVDs or BRVDs. When this was rereleased we snapped it up and thoroughly enjoyed it. Looks phenomenal on a large screen HD TV that has a first rate discrete digital sound system backing it up. Eddie Murphy is indeed a comedic genius.

      Eddie Murphy gives several funny and memorable performances in this movie, about an overweight professor who experiments with a weight loss formula he created in order to attract a woman he likes. Recommended.

      The Digital code doesn't work, but the movie itself is great and I don't get why Nutty Professor 2 is not on bluray yet.

      Nowhere near as charming as the original but Eddie Murphy has his own unique approach to comedy that helps him pull this off.
