The Nutty Professor

Eddie Murphy returns in one of his most hilarious multi-role movies as Professor Sherman Klump, a hugely obese scientist who falls for the lovely Professor Carla Purty (Jada Pinkett Smith). Desperate for her affections, Klump invents a DNA-altering drug that temporarily transforms him into the slender, testosterone-overloaded jerk, Buddy Love. Hilarity ensues as both egos compete for dominance and Carla's attention in this comedy.
