Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

As if the number of roles he plays in one movie says more about his skill than his ability to convey depth in a single part (as in Boomerang or Holy Man), the prodigiously talented Eddie Murphy—with the help of makeup, wardrobe, and special effects—becomes not only all the members of an extended family but also the id lurking inside one of them. Sherman Klump—the Dr. Jekyll to a Mr. Hyde named Buddy Love—invents a potion that temporarily restores youth and provides arbitrary excuses for sight gags. This follow-up to The Nutty Professor (1996) wastes most of its 110 minutes making impotent jokes about male sexual behavior and the repugnance of old women, as it lays the groundwork for a homophobic, misogynistic, hilarious climax. Peter Segal directed a screenplay by Barry Blaustein, David Sheffield, Paul Weitz, and Chris Weitz; with Janet Jackson and Larry Miller.
