There's bold work here from Murphy on grand scale of thespian commitment, yet the feature's sense of humor is more dreary than playful, killing the potential of the premise with a constant display of bad taste.
The Klumps is a bit like watching Ali just a couple of years before he called it quits -- occasionally still exciting to be around, but more often than not going through the motions, punching well below par.
The Nutty Professor is, of course, a vanity piece, and it does serve notice that Murphy has lost none of his talent or ability. But it also demonstrates that he needs some guidance so he won't waste it on such lousy material.
