    This is easily one of Eddie's best works and one of the most memorable films he has done thanks to playing that hilarious Klump family (which prompted the sequel). It's a hilarious comedy that works so well because of Eddie, but its also a great concept with a good meaning behind to it also. The classic 'dinner scene' is possibly one of my favourite scenes in a film, and it is just hilarious! Overall this is one of my personal favourite comedies, and I would highly recommend it! Expand

    I disagree with TheNewSpielberg.
    I felt this movie was very hilarious, and well executed. Why does my review need to be at least 150 characters long?

    And the movie succeeds in two different ways: It's sweet and good-hearted, and then again it's raucous slapstick and bathroom humor. I liked both parts.

    Eddie Murphy is funny again. Sadly, he lacks the guts to follow through on the cathartic self-satire that gives the film its distinction.
  3. Murphy is wonderful -- I wouldn't begrudge him an Oscar nomination -- but The Nutty Professor is a mess.
