    Eight different characters, all played by Murphy, all convincing, each with its own personality. This is not just a stunt. It is some kind of brilliance.
  2. 70
    Murphy still knows how to please a crowd.
  3. 60
    Too often, the movie is more forced and frantic than actually funny.
  4. 50
    Half a movie at best. The broad humor at times derails Mr. Murphy's performances, but the movie provides a vehicle for him to display his reach.
  5. He (Murphy) can't make chicken a la king from the chicken manure supplied by the writers.

    Be prepared to laugh less at a lot more of the same thing in this overbearing but underwhelming sequel.
  7. The thrill is definitely gone, leaving a disappointing and unpleasant mess in its place.

    Aw come on. This is one of my favorite movies ever. It's funny and well...it's good. Scratch that, excellent!!! I couldn't even find one flaw! I would give it a chance and if you're into comedy, you'll love this. Expand

    Eddie's back and thanks to the success of the hilarious Klump family in the first film the sequel was based around them. It's probably on par with the first film with just as many jokes, and I loved having more of the Klumps on screen, but that 'dinner scene' has lost its effect from the first film. Janet replaces Jada and she fits in well with the film. There is a nice blend of comedy mixed with good messages but overall its a great comedy and again Eddie's best work in my opinion. Expand

    It's actually a pretty funny movie to watch. Not one of the best comedies but it's going to laugh out loud for sure! My score for "Nutty Professor 2" is 7/10, but not because it has some issues, it's just my personal score, i just like other kind of comedies, as i said it's still great though! Expand

    Eddie Murphy should have just stopped at the first movie. The first movie was crude enough, but this took it to a whole new level. And what happened to Klump's girlfriend from the first movie? Did they break up or something? Now his new girlfriend is played by Janet Jackson. Expand

    The first Nutty Professor played off its premise without trying too hard, but the second one is juts plain vulgar, idiotic, and quite manic. Steer clear. Expand
