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.

Nutty II is too willing to sacrifice our identification with him to go for flatulence, poop and erection jokes.

There's more than enough cheerfully vulgar humor in this ungainly enterprise.
