Rating: 4/5 -- Much better than the remake; Jerry Lewis' best movie.
Atlantic City Weekly

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: 3.5/4 -- Contains some of Lewis's most outré directorial flourishes. Full Review

The Nutty Professor is a waste of talent, a waste of superb color photography and a waste of time. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- a quite funny romp
Mar 8, 2008
Rating: D -- Silly, manic, juvenile, square, unfunny in an offensive way and serving as an egomaniacal testament to Mr. Lewis. Full Review

Product Description:

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.

Plot Synopsis:

In his college lab, a goonball, bucktoothed professor concocts a potion that turns him into a suave ladies' man. A Lewis classic.
