Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
Jerry Lewis was among the executive producers of this genuinely funny remake of his 1963 comedy. As grotesquely overweight Professor Sherman Klump, Eddie Murphy is at the top of his form, in a role which revived his career after an eight-year string of disappointments. Whether playing the pathetic Klump or his thin, nasty alter-ego Buddy Love, Murphy pulls off a tour-de-force in one of the highlights of his career. Rick Baker's makeup effects are remarkable, seamlessly transforming Murphy into a string of distinct characters, most notably Klump's entire family at the hilarious dinner scene which is the film's biggest laugh-getter. On the downside, the film occasionally veers into unnecessarily sugary sweetness or crass vulgarity, dulling its often dark humor in a bid for mass acceptance. Still, director Tom Shadyac (Liar, Liar) has delivered an enjoyable, visually striking comedy which never fails to entertain.
