Nutty Professor II - The Klumps (2000)



Average Rating: 4.4/10
Reviews Counted: 85
Fresh: 22 | Rotten: 63

While Eddie Murphy is still hilarious as the entire Klump family, the movie falls apart because of uneven pacing, a poor script, and skits that rely on being gross rather than funny.

Nutty Professor II is neither funny nor endearing enough to conceal the fact that, like its star, it fills the screen with a lot of padding.

Rape that's anal and bestial! Scrotal lint! Noodly penises! One Eddie Murphy character desperately begging to give another one gummy oral sex in a hot tub! Bring the whole family!

sidelined by a convoluted storyline whipped up by no less than four screenwriters, all of whom seem to have been working at cross-purposes.

Shrill, obnoxious, unfunny and nearly unwatchable.

It relentlessly humiliates its many obese and elderly characters.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: Citysearch

The Klumps are relegated to the sidelines, gross caricatures meant to distract us from the movie's disjointed, inane plot line.

Lacks the heart of the first.

Murphy's targets are selective, his timing shrewd.

The original Klump experience still stands out as a winner.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

Jokes that are funny the first time are repeated over and over, well past the point where they stop being funny, and far into the realm of annoyance.

Audience Reviews for Nutty Professor II - The Klumps

Sure it had some good laughs, but it was just more of the same ol same.

I found that this sequel to the Nutty Professor was lacking considering that the first film was a lot of fun, funny and entertaining. The film is decent, but is also fairly lazy compared to the first one. They tried too hard at outdoing the first film, and they ended up with another sub-par sequel. This is very often the case with most sequels. Filmmakers try to outdo the first, but they fail to capture key elements that made the first film so special. The Nutty Professor II is a decent enough comedy, but it really doesn't do anything new or exciting with the material. Eddie Murphy is good here, however I feel that he's past his prime, and he should've retired after this film was made. The guy isn't what he used to be. The film funny, but the humor is tiresome at times, and you see that the screenwriters tried too hard at outdoing the first film. This sequel still manages to make you laugh, but with less effective results. I enjoyed the first film a lot more and despite the fact that this is somewhat decent, Nutty Professor II could have been much better. The film has laughs here and there, and for the moist part is decent enough to be entertaining, but as yet another sequel to a smash comedy, this film fails to be as funny as the first film. Nutty Professor II is worth watching, but it's nowhere near the first film, which was very funny, original and brought on big laughs.

Its worth a viewing because its fun to see Murphy playing the Klump family again making more jokes, ultimately the script isnt as good as the original and Murphy does sell out on this one but godamn it. It still made me laugh. Worth a viewing though for sure

Weak script, bad direction, bad acting, poor film. At least, The Klumps, sometimes apparently looks a fun picture. Rotten.
