Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Nutty Professor

31 January 2016 8:47 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Welcome to another look at the highs and lows of Hollywood remakes. This time, we’ve got one of the better ones, as we compare two of the all-time great screen comedians in two of their best roles. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Nutty Professor.

Jerry Lewis and Eddie Murphy are two of the best big-screen comedians in the history of the film industry. Jerry Lewis’ 1963 hit The Nutty Professor is a comedy classic, which Lewis wrote and directed himself. Eddie Murphy is one of the few comedians talented enough to try to recapture that magic and succeed.  Murphy’s remake is so entertaining that it matches the original in overall comedic quality. Which is better? Let’s look at the two versions.

What’s interesting about this comparison is that both versions of The Nutty Professor are the benchmark for the second half of the careers of the respective stars. »
