Silly, manic, juvenile, square, unfunny in an offensive way and serving as an egomaniacal testament to Mr. Lewis.

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.

It's a brilliant job of direction, but the film couldn't have worked without Lewis' performance in both roles.

Lewis' uneven take on Jekyll and Hyde has its fun moments, but at times its too sentimental and cloying.

Demonstrates that Jerry Lewis is the absolute master of screen space: There's not a single indifferent shot in the film.
