Rating: 7/10 -- The Nutty Professor was not only a starring vehicle for Lewis, the comedian, it was also co-written and directed by the star and shows, intentionally and deliberately, two drastically different sides of him. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Much better than the remake; Jerry Lewis' best movie.
Atlantic City Weekly
Rating: 3.5/4 -- Contains some of Lewis's most outré directorial flourishes. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- [Jerry] Lewis constructed one of his sturdiest scripts in The Nutty Professor, and he wasted scarcely a minute of it. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- a quite funny romp
Rating: 4/5 -- Certainly Jerry Lewis at his best.
Kansas City Kansan
It's a brilliant job of direction, but the film couldn't have worked without Lewis' performance in both roles. Full Review
Nerd. Milquetoast. Klutz. These are just three of the many undesirable words that can be used to describe Professor Julius Kelp. But all that changes when the chemistry expert invents a potion that transforms him into a suave, sexy chick magnet, whom Julius aptly names Buddy Love. Unfortunately, there's one side effect: Buddy can't control when he'll change back into Julius, an event that always happens at inopportune times. How will Julius/Buddy resolve his Jekyll-and-Hyde dilemma' This film cemented Jerry Lewis's reputation as a comic genius; he co-wrote and co-produced the film while also turning in a fabulous performance. This film served as the basis for Eddie Murphy's later Nutty Professor films.
In his college lab, a goonball, bucktoothed professor concocts a potion that turns him into a suave ladies' man. A Lewis classic.
