What to know

critics consensus

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. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

    It does receive a chuckle or some laughs from here and there, but still, this movie is bad. Not the worst (it's still watchable), just bad.

    Good sequel, Some funny bits, Decent story and well done by Eddie again, But not as good as the first after it gets too serious near the end.

    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.
