Movie Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Owen Gleiberman More than just a walking fat joke, Sherman Klump is Eddie Murphy's winking rebuke of his own arrogance.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Kenneth Turan Tasteful, subtle and sophisticated are a few of the words that aren't going to be applied to Eddie Murphy's version of The Nutty Professor. But funny, funny is something else again.
Newsweek - 8/10 by Allison Samuels Directed by Tom Shadyac ("Ace Ventura"), it's nearly sociopathic in its quest for laughs, and busts a very big gut.
Time - 8/10 by Richard Schickel Murphy, abetted by director Tom Shadyac and a whole raft of writers, cannot entirely escape the curious blend of aspiration and sloppiness that marked the earlier film.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert 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.
Rolling Stone - 8/10 by Peter Travers Eddie Murphy is funny again. Sadly, he lacks the guts to follow through on the cathartic self-satire that gives the film its distinction.
USA Today - 8/10 by Mike Clark This is good, seamless comedy, even if it's not terribly sophisticated.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Without ever posing a serious challenge to the original, the new Nutty Professor is much more respectful of its source and funnier than I'd anticipated.
Washington Post - 7/10 by Rita Kempley Murphy owes much of his success to the amazing special-effects makeup by Rick Baker ("An American Werewolf in London"), but he brings a tenderness and dignity to the performance that he has never shown before.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 6/10 by Rick Groen Not that The Nutty Professor should ever be confused with a good movie, but it is a perfect vehicle for the redisplay of Murphy's neglected talents, steering him away from the smug persona of his recent disasters and whisking him back to the cozy locale of his Saturday Night Live roots.
ReelViews - 6/10 by James Berardinelli The Nutty Professor aims for guffaws at the lowest level -- anyone with a double-digit IQ will get every joke. Whether you laugh at them or not is often more of a matter of taste than a question of having a sense of humor.
Empire - 6/10 by Angie Errigo Occasionally irritating farce but inventive and boasting an endearing as well as laugh-out-loud performance from Murphy in and out of fat suit.
