The Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps is as hilarious a comedy as the first Nutty Professor.

Eddie Murphy is back as the very overweight scientist Sherman Klump. Unfortunately, his slim and comical alter ego, Buddy Love, is also back. But this movie focuses more on Sherman's family - and their lack of good decorum at the table.

In this film, Janet Jackson is Klump's love interest - Jada Pinkett Smith was his love interest in the first movie, and I kind of liked her better. Jackson's acting skills seemed a little thin in a few scenes. But I guess it doesn't matter - dumb comedies don't get Oscar nominations for acting anyway. And this is still very laughable material.

All in all, The Nutty Professor is a howlingly funny comedy. However, it probably appeals most to people who enjoyed the first film. Also, fans of gross bathroom humor will have a good time at this movie. I thought The Nutty Professor 2 was hysterical.

Just a warning - if deplorable table manners and general rudeness bother you, stay away from this film. In one particularly comical scene, Buddy Love - whose new incarnation is part dog - spreads newspaper on a bathroom floor. In other words, he's planning to go to the bathroom the way dogs do. I heard someone behind me say in a disgusted voice, "I don't believe what I'm seeing." This struck me as ironic, because everyone knows it's rude to talk loudly during a movie. I should have yelled at him to shut up.

Anyway, I thought the bathroom scene was a wonderful example of the side-splitting comedy The Nutty Professor 2 has to offer.

My Rating = Four Stars
