Brilliant and obese scientist Sherman Klump invents a miraculous weight-loss solution. After a date with chemistry student Carla Purty goes badly, a depressed Klump tries the solution on himself. Though he instantly loses 250 pounds, the side effects include a second personality: an obnoxiously self-assertive braggart who calls himself Buddy Love. Buddy proves to be more popular than Sherman, but his arrogance and bad behavior quickly spiral out of control. Written by
This movie has a lot in common with the Jim Carrey movie, The Mask (1994). They both have scenes that include transforming into the other self that is crazier than the normal self, romantic relationship with a woman, lying to cover up the other self, etc. See more »
When Buddy and Miss Purdy go to Scream for the first time, it appears that their table is almost directly opposite the front of the stage. When Buddy later plays the piano on stage and sings to Miss Purdy, he is facing to the left of stage (ie. not in her direction). If he wanted to face her while playing the piano, his head should be turned to his right rather than looking straight ahead. See more »
You're not pathetic! People! Pounds do not lose themselves! You have to work! Work! Work! Everybody up! Get up! You, too, at home. Everybody up and say...

Starring: Eddie Murphy (x 7), Jada Pinkett Smith, and Larry Miller.
An obese college professor starts to fall for a pretty teacher. He doesn't think that people will like him if he was fat, so he uses a weight-losing potion he created on himself. It works perfectly, and the professor is extremely thin. Now, people treat him differently than when he was fat. But he soon finds out that the "thin" side of him has a mind of its own and is looking to get rid of the "plump" side forever.
Murphy does excellent in all seven roles that are given to him. The scene(s) that really make it funny are the dinner ones. I will say that on a low note, Buddy is a little over the top.
I highly recommend it.
