Joe's Preview Review:
Eddie Murphy has returned to make a sequel, more money, and do more obese characters in this year's most overly hyped film. I've been seeing previews forever for this film. They look disgusting, and I think I've already seen too much. Plus Eddie Murphy as 5 characters, I couldn't even take Martin Lawrence as 2 in Big Momma's House. This movie looks like a stinker.

Joe's Review:

        A surprisingly good film that showcases Eddie Murphy's many talents. Thinking back to The Nutty Professor, not the original with Jerry Lewis but the first Eddie Murphy installment, I remember a funny movie with Eddie Murphy that enjoyed watching. After seeing it's box office tally, I knew the next step was sequel. I thought as long as Eddie Murphy was involved it could never get too low. That is the inside secret of The Nutty Professor, without Eddie Murphy, the film is a waste but he's in the movie so we don't really have to think about it.

        Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps is a film that derives every bit of comedy that could be gotten out of Eddie Murphy and the whole Klump family.  Murphy excels especially in his roles as Grandma and Papa Klump. These two alone could have their own movie. The sexually active Grandma and the sexually deficient Papa are brilliant and hysterical.

        There are two supporting performances worth mentioning, but Murphy makes the movie. Larry Miller reprises his role as the dickhead, Sherman's boss Dean Richmond at Wellman College. He has a funny scene involving a giant hamster; one of the film's best scenes. The other supporting character is the film's love interest in the luscious form of pop diva Janet Jackson as a fellow professor at the college. The best thing I can say about her performance is she didn't make the film worse but she didn't improve it much. She did add a bit of beauty to an otherwise ugly cast full of fat Eddie Murphys.

        The movie's premise is about fart jokes and fat jokes so don't expect any real substance here. Yeah, fine... they make the point that it's on the inside which counts, which we all know is bull.  This is the most consistently funny comedy of the summer. Me, Myself, and Irene had a few chuckles but it had an awful lot of dry spells. I was laughing all through the movie. That's what I expect from a good comedy, that's what I got. One of the only decent films of the summer.
