Professor Klump wanting to be loved for someone he is not (by angel-41)
This is the funniest movie I have seen in the longest time. It has become my all time favourite. I do not usually like to look at movies more than once but this movie has me going again and again. I have seen this movie no less than twenty times. I love the dinner scenes, especially Grandma on her recollections of her long lost "relations". It was really a scream at the Scream. I thoroughly enjoyed Reggie. He was unbelievable. So too was his singing. I hope the sequel is just as amusing. I think Eddie is a truly talented Actor in his own rights and I wish him all the best. I would <more>
really like to meet him though I hope he is not snubbish as are some actors/resses.
One of the funniest movies of the '90s (by SMLA11)
This must be one of the most funniest movies of the '90s, or of pretty much all time. Eddie Murphy is great as Professer Klump, and well everybody else in his family. He could possibly be at one of his best roles of all time and I enjoyed his hero and villain part. Jada Pinkett Smith was really good as Professor Klump's love interest and I enjoyed her a lot.Overall the whole movie has at least something hilarious about it and I loved it. Rating 10 out of 10.
A great comedy, but not a great movie. (by cinephile-27690)
Let me get this straight right now: The Nutty Professor is NOT one of the best movies ever made! That is not why this gets a 10. This is a comedy, and so it's supposed to make you laugh. And that succeeds very well.This movie stars Eddie Murphy in 7 roles: Sherman Klump, Buddy Love, Sherman's Dad, Brother Ernie, and most hilariously-Sherman's mother and grandmother. He is also a white man that parodies Richard Simmons! However, Sherman is the main character, and in this movie, he is hundreds of pounds in weight. Why? Because all he does is eat!He then falls in love with a <more>
beautiful woman her name, in fact, is Miss. Purdy and when he's had enough of people's teasing a comedian at his date becomes the straw that breaks the camel's back , he makes a potion that he can drink and he sheds countless pounds. However, his alter ego is also very obnoxious, and that causes some problems.I first saw this movie when I was about 10 or 11. My Mom let me see it, and we watched it together. She had seen it before, but she forgot at how vulgar it was.So we heard all these curse words mostly the A word, among other bad words , and there were a ton of fart jokes and sex-related humor we did not like.An example is a scene with numerous Yo Mama jokes-one being: "your mother's so fat, after sex I roll over twice, and I'm still on the b*tch!"We got halfway through it, and I actually offered to take out the VHS tape. Yeah, welcome to MY era! However, I have grown to love it, and I have seen it well over a dozen times now!It, along with it's sequel, are great fun and hilarious as well!If you are in the mood for mindless fun and something to not take so seriously, this is a movie that will fit the bill. It's not one of the best movies ever, but it's a thoroughly entertaining comedy!
Commenting on the comment "fatism" below (by zetes)
As a fat person myself, I encounter prejudice every day. Movies are especially bad, because it is still considered okay to make fun of fat people. Most skinny people just assume that we're lazy. They think that we have the potential to be as thin as is considered "normal," but we just are too lazy to do anything about it. That is absolutely false not that the skinnies would ever buy that, but I can at least try .Anyway, to get to The Nutty Professor, I found it to be one of the most sympathetic portrayals of fat people ever put on film. The only one that tops it is James <more>
Mangold's Heavy, although the protagonist's weight wasn't all that was harming his well-being. The Nutty Professor did have some physical comedy involving fat that one could take as funny, but I never felt that the jokes were degrading. The main reason that I feel this was so sympathetic was that, though he experienced life as a skinny stud, he did decide to be a fat man at the end. One can chock this up to formulae, but something that Sherrman Klump said at the end really touched me: "I could try to lose weight, but I'm always going to be a fat man, and you're just going to have to live with that." I think that a film where the screenwriters who were bigoted would have said something like, "I'll lose weight without this stupid formula." That's not what happened, though, and I'm glad for that.
From director Tom Shadyac Ace Ventura 1, Liar Liar , this is a fantastic comedy and career boost for the leading man. Basically Professor Sherman Klump Golden Globe nominated Eddie Murphy at Wellman College is the good hearted, overweight man, who one day meets and falls in love with gorgeous grad student and professor Carla Purty Jada Pinkett Smith . He knows though that his weight is a problem, and he is very depressed. He does try to lose weight with exercise, but soon he takes even bigger action by drinking the potion/formula he invented in his lab, that decreases size. He is now <more>
Buddy Love the thin, handsome and loud-mouthed Murphy , and as this alter ego he asks Carla to go on a date, and she soon finds herself falling for him. But after a while, Buddy is turning more arrogant, and Sherman is having problems with his personal and work life, particularly with his boss Dean Richmond Larry Miller and assistant Jason John Ales , Buddy's name is even put on the door to his lab after a presentation in a restaurant to Harlan Hartley James Coburn . In the end, Buddy is got rid of though by Sherman, he learns that he should be himself, and he gets a final dance with Carla. Also starring Dave Chappelle as Reggie Warrington, Jamal Mixon as Ernie Jr. "Hercules" Klump and I Like to Play Games' Lisa Boyle as Sexy "Glutious-Aminimous" Girl. The best acting from Murphy is not just Sherman and Buddy though, he also plays four other Klump family members, Cletus 'Papa' Klump, Anna 'Mama' Klump, Ida Mae 'Granny' Klump and Ernie Klump, Sr, plus on the TV, exercise enthusiast Lance Perkins. It is ultimately a Jekyll and Hyde love story. With great outtakes in the credits. It won the Oscar for Best Makeup, it won the BAFTA for Best Make Up/Hair, and it was nominated for Best Special Visual Effects. Eddie Murphy was number 67 on The 100 Greatest Movie Stars, and the film was number 84 on The 100 Greatest Family Films. Very good!
You let go of my hand you fat mother...Say one more word Buddy i'll tear your arm off! (by hitman8)
I don't understand why so many people don't like this movie, i mean come on Eddie Murphy gives the performances of his career. Sherman Klump is a overweight College professor trying to find a way to move the cells in your body around to make yourself skinny. I'n a last second effort to prove his formula works, and to impress Ms Perdy, Sherman tries the formula on himself and then transforms into a very scrawny Buddy Love. Buddy then reeks havoc on society and on Shermans own life. This is a wonderful movie full of some great characters, one of the best is played by Dave Chappele <more>
who plays a stand-up comedian named Reggie. ***/****. A great movie, no doubting that.
A Real Showcase For Eddie Murphy (by ccthemovieman-1)
A general nasty tone to this comedy prevented me from rating this a "9" or a "10," but it does have a ton of laughs, courtesy of Eddie Murphy. He's at is best when he's at the dinner table playing everyone but the kid. That is one of the funniest scenes I remember from any 1990s comedy. His humor is very crude in here another PG-13 rating that is ludicrous but very funny in spots, too. With that kind of humor, it's easy to go over the line of "good taste" which he does on occasion. Overall, however, Murphy is remarkable as all these characters. I <more>
believe he plays seven in all. This is probably his biggest 'showcase' ever on film, demonstrating his comedic talents.Even though this has a childlike-romance-type feel to it, and a nice message about bias against fat people, there are so many raunchy and downright nasty lines - mainly at the comedy club or the dinner table - that it's certainly not recommended for kids. This is a LONG way away from the original Jerry Lewis movie. Still....for adults, this movie provides a lot of laughs.
"The Nutty Professor" is easily deserving of being mentioned with the funniest movies of all time. This movie was nothing short of comedic genius. Eddie Murphy cemented himself as a comedy legend with his performance s in "The Nutty Professor". I would go so far as to say that I've never seen two scenes funnier than the two Klump family dinner scenes. For Eddie Murphy to have pulled that off so seamlessly only showed his range and his talent. The two dinner scenes were gut busting hi-la-ri-ous, and what made them so good is that you don't even realize that Eddie <more>
Murphy is playing all of those roles. The second dinner scene was particularly hilarious because of Professor Klump; although he never says a word. He was so humiliated by his family's actions that he had the most mortified look on his face, and a couple of times you could even see him attempt to cut his wrist with a butter knife. Priceless!!!
I remember the the original version of "The Nutty Professor" with Jerry Lewis. But the remake is just as funny, even though I can do without the language there. The music is fun, the plot is great, and the pun is outrageous. To me, I got a lot of fat friends, but I would never make fun of their weight. Professor Sherman Klump Eddie Murphy is bright, reserved, and kind to everyone around him. Buddy Love also Murphy is slim, buff, and very obnoxious. When Sherman meets Carla Purty Jada Smith , he would go to the extremes to have her. After the incident in "The Scream" <more>
Sherman becomes Buddy. And at "The Scream" Buddy puts Reggie Dave Chappelle in his place with all the "Your Mama's so fat..." jokes. That scene left me in stitches. I enjoyed the characters in the movie, including that nasty Dean Richmond Larry Miller, "Neccsary Roughness" who is put in his place many times by Buddy and Alumni Harlan Hartley James Corburn . This movie is funny all the way, just don't use it as a weapon on the obese. Rating 3 out of 5 stars.
