Double bill of American comedies starring Eddie Murphy as the titular Professor Sherman Klump (as well as Ernie Klump, Granny Klump, and Mama and Papa Klump). In 'The Nutty Professor' (1996), Sherman Klump, a shy, overweight chemistry professor invents a slimming formula which transforms him into the svelte, fast-talking Buddy Love (also Murphy). His new-found confidence means he can now happily date his pretty colleague Carla Purty (Jada Pinkett Smith), but when Buddy starts to take over, Sherman risks jeopardising his own career and his true self being lost forever. In the sequel 'The Nutty Professor 2' (2000) Sherman Klump, having decided to get married, asks for the hand of fellow scientist Denise Gaines (Janet Jackson) and is overjoyed when she accepts. But when Klump's fast-talking alter ego Buddy Love comes back on the scene, the ensuing havoc threatens to ruin all the professor's plans.
