THE NUTTY PRO­FES­SOR (1996) 7MATE, 6.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The 1960s Jerry Lewis com­edy was re­made as a ve­hi­cle for Ed­die Murphy in mul­ti­ple roles and it worked such a treat we had to have the in­evitable se­quels. Murphy plays the obese, painfully shy Pro­fes­sor Sherman Klump, who is trans­formed by a fat gene for­mula into a trim and ir­re­sistible ladies’ man. There’s a heavy quota of fart and bum jokes, but the va­ri­ety of characters Murphy plays – men and women, young and old – are gen­er­ally amus­ing. James Coburn turns up in a small sup­port­ing role. ★★★✩
