This is good, seamless comedy.

Delivers belly laughs as huge as Klump's waistline.

This is a chance to see Murphy doing what he does best, and for that alone it's worth seeing.

It's just so pleasing that Murphy has cloaked his ego in an effective character and an engaging story this time.

The flick is sketch comedy spun out to feature length.

It's crude, but funny.

Eddie Murphy is funny again. Sadly, he lacks the guts to follow through on the cathartic self-satire that gives the film its distinction.

Messy, raucous, crude and undisciplined though this remake of the 1963 Jerry Lewis vehicle is, it also creates more laughter (and poignancy) than any Eddie Murphy movie has in quite some time.

I never thought I would see the day when Eddie Murphy would play a character who inspired sympathy, but watching Klump disintegrate before a barrage of the comedian's barbs is genuinely poignant.

It took four writers -- including Shadyac -- to adapt Lewis and Richmond's original Nutty Professor script, and they managed to remove what little dramatic impetus once existed.

I do not recommend this lame picture to any age group.

Murphy proves himself a surprisingly strong actor here, playing Sherman with sweetness and poignancy, not to mention loads of funny weight-related humor.
