The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

July 1st, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Today’s Hulu Days of Summer debut is all about the laughs, courtesy of that master of multiple roles, Eddie Murphy. In The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, Murphy plays eight roles himself, including the portly Professor Klump and a sex-crazed grandma.

Picking up where the original Nutty Professor (a remake of the 1963 Jerry Lewis film) left off, Sherman Klump is a professor in search of a miraculous elixir to stop aging. Unfortunately for Sherman, he never managed to fully eradicate his arrogant alter-ego, Buddy Love. Now Buddy’s back with a vengeance, threatening to screw up Sherman’s upcoming marriage to cutting-edge DNA scientist, Denise Gaines (Janet Jackson) and take all the credit for the youth serum.

Fortunately for the Professor, Buddy has to go through Sherman’s family to get to the remedy. Poor Buddy doesn’t know what’s coming to him.
