An in your face comedy.

This remake is watchable 90% of the time, the scenes with the animals are not necessary, it's surprising that PETA didn't go crazy on the filmmakers' behinds, maybe they did, but rationally they are not even real animals and this is just a movie.

The in your face aspect is "Buddy Love" (Eddie Murphy) shouting and laughing over the top throughout most of his scenes, it's extreme but it's obviously supposed to be. The movie turns into a type of alter-ego story, "Buddy" is loud and crass and "Professor Sherman Klump" (also Eddie Murphy) is quiet, reserved and respectful. The film is clever into making sure they are two complete opposites in personality as well as physicality.

Even though this is a Comedy it isn't actually funny, even the comic that cussed "Sherman" out is not even funny, and "Buddy" getting his revenge with his jokes/insults against the comic was not even funny either, on both parts it was just insults disguised as comedy, real comedians can use insults but they have an actual point to what they are saying.

The message in this motion picture is hard to find until the end when they make it clear that you should love yourself regardless of how you look.

"Sherman's" family "The Klumps" are difficult to watch being that they are all unnatural due to most of them being played by Eddie Murphy in drag, and what is up with "Sherman" inviting the love interest "Carla" (Jada Pinkett Smith) to have dinner with his family already knowing that they are rude people and it was verified by flatulence and swearing at the dinner table. One could argue that "Sherman" isn't perfect and that was a mistake, but we see that him taking that potion already shows that he isn't perfect and is making mistakes, do we really need to see him make more errors?!

The pacing of the movie is fine, some of the dialogue is too much, but there's worse comedies out there.

This is not one of Eddie Murphy's best movies, but then again the majority of his films are rubbish, the only decent films that he's done is the "Beverly Hills Cop" trilogy.

My 90's favorite film

The Nutty Professor is along with Bowfinger, one of Eddie Murphy's last funny comedies. The idea is good, and I enjoyed the comedic elements of the film. Of all the films that Eddie Murphy has starred in, The Nutty Professor is one of his funniest. Sure the film isn't perfect, but there are plenty of good laughs here to entertain the audience. I'm not the biggest Eddie Murphy fan, but I enjoyed this film, and I thought it had some great moments where the film was very well done. The Nutty Professor is a good comedy, and somewhat underrated. However, if you enjoy Eddie Murphy, give this one a shot, The Nutty Professor is one of his last funny roles, and he really does bring on good laughs with his antics in this film. The Nutty Professor has a good cast starring opposite Murphy, and the film boasts another comedic talent, Dave Chappelle. And the acting of Jada Pinkett Smith as Carla was great! The film works well enough to be an entertaining hour and a half and despite the fact that it's not a comedic masterpiece, the film still has plenty of laughs going for it, and is much better than the second. This is one of Eddie Murphy's last good film roles along with Bowfinger afterwards he really started to make unfunny films that just insulted the intelligence and were a waste of time. Luckily looking back at this film, you realize that Eddie Murphy was once very funny and capable at delivering something unique on-screen. Now, he's totally irrelevant and unfunny. The Nutty Professor may not be the best comedy, but it definitely is worth watching and is pretty funny for what it is.

This low?!

I'm pretty shocked to see that this movie has a rating of only 5.6. I admit it's not one of the best comedies ever made, but this movie really does have a lot of significance. Eddie Murphy has been in so many recent bad comedies it's great to see him in one of his funniest roles ever. I saw the old version with Jerry Lewis first and I guess I should probably compare the two. While both are good films, I think the new one is actually probably better. It seems to be more cartoonish than the original and probably has more laughs.

1996 to 2001 wasn't a good time for movies, especially comedies but this one stands out pretty well. I mean, I really do like the main character and the set up is really nice. I like how it all leads up to a very entertaining climax as Sherman literally fights with himself or rather, his alter ego. This movie has been quoted by my brother so many times I really have no choice to like it. He's never stopped saying, "Hercules! Hercules!". Well, he just simply says, "Herc". As a pretty significant film for the times, I recommend it. ***
