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

Professor Carla Purty:
I just had to come over and introduce myself because I've been following your work for many years and I'm a big fan!
Well, thank you very much! I'm fatter, er, *flattered* that you've been following my work the way you have.

When Sherman Klump opens the drawer in his desk and reveals the secret compartment containing all the candy, there is a row of 'Snickers' bars on the top. In some T.V. versions, at least in the UK, the word 'Snickers' is digitally altered to 'Chocky'. See more »

This movie is a treat to all the Eddie Murphy fan including myself. His decent and conservative sagely performance as Prof.Sherman Klump and obnoxious and whacky funny man acting as the counterpart Buddy Love is simply amazing. Not only that the most amazing part is the way he has played many other parts in the movie. The jokes are simply hilarious and rib tickling. I would rate this movie as a 7/10.
