Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

Theatrical Release: July 28, 2000
Nutty Professor II: The Klumps


Lovable Sherman Klump (Eddie Murphy) thought he had seen the last of his alter ego, but Buddy Love is back and trying to make it on his own. Having done his best to keep Buddy buried in his subconscious, the portly and painfully shy professor is horrified to find him resurfacing in untimely outbursts, and threatening his marriage plans to colleague Denise Gaines (Janet Jackson). Utilizing Denise’s cutting-edge DNA research, Sherman decides to rid himself of his monstrous nemesis – and his disruptive outbursts – once and for all by extracting Buddy’s DNA from his system. But Buddy will not go quietly.

Dove Review

Although Mr. Murphy breaks me up, he just can’t get very far from crudity and profanity. “The Nutty Professor: 2” is rated PG-13 for one crude sexual comment after another. When humor isn’t extracted from broad sexual innuendo, Mr. Murphy turns to gross-out visuals, jokes about old age and the always reliable flatulence sound effect. Intestinal gas gags are repeated not once, not twice, but over and over. Unfortunately, the newest generation must believe that all comedy is based on bodily functions. But all you have to do to prove that theory wrong is to rent the original “Nutty Professor” with Jerry Lewis. Or if you want three hours of comedy with nary an objectionable word or action, try renting Blake Edwards salute to melodramas, “The Great Race.”
