The Nutty Professor (1996)

(PG-13) 95 mins

Plot Summary: Grossly overweight Prof. Sherman Klump, desperate to lose weight takes a special chemical that turns him into the slim but obnoxious Buddy Love.

Director: Tom Shadyac

Writers: Jerry Lewis (1963 motion picture), Bill Richmond(1963 motion picture), David Sheffield (screenplay), Barry W. Blaustein (screenplay), Tom Shadyac (screenplay), and Steve Oedekerk (screenplay)

Stars: Eddie MurphyJada Pinkett Smith and James Coburn

Serious Jest:  (Must Own)  This one’s a comedy classic.  Murphy’s ability to play different unique characters was even more impressive than in his Saturday Night Live days.  The jokes are still hilarious 15 years later, and people still know what you mean when you chant, “Hercules!  Hercules!  Hercules!”
