Professor Sherman Klump is getting married. And the Klump family could not be more delighted for him. But Buddy Love, his Mr. Hyde alter-ego from the first film, is back and trying to make it on his own. Buddy keeps resurfacing in untimely outbursts, and threatening the portly professor's marriage plans to colleague Denise Gaines. Utilizing Denise's cutting-edge DNA research, Sherman decides to rid himself of his monstrous nemesis -and his disruptive outbursts-once and for all by extracting Buddy's DNA from his system. But Buddy bursts full-bodied into Sherman's world and lays claim to the professor's astounding invention - a revolutionary youth serum. Desperate to keep it from Buddy, Sherman hides the serum in the Klump family home, thinking it will be safe. Buddy correctly divines where Sherman has placed the serum, but to get it, he has to deal with the entire Klump family first. Written by Anonymous

I have always loved the First Nutty Professor film & it's one of my most watched films ever & one of my all time favourite movies & i do really like it's sweet & silly sequel.

It's always a joy to spend time with the funny & lovable KLUMP family & here in this slightly sillier sequel we get a movie based around the family this time!!! Eddie Murphy is again a comic genius as he creates each memorable performance into a proper character that you just love. Here lovable & brilliant Sherman Klump has found a new love in fellow teacher, Denise played by Janet Jackson who is not as good as Jada Pinkett Smith from the first film but she's ok & it's a completely different role, Sherman also has created a new youth serum that can turn people young again but he's also dealing with the trauma of his alter ego Buddy Love, who still haunts him & who will eventually return. That's the basic story but we get lots more hilarious scenes with the Klump family & lots of nice special effects & a nice feelgood & slapstick tone. It's nice that the very funny Larry Miller returns as Dean Richmond as i loved him in the first film & Buddy Love is just as crazy & manic as he was in the first film but this sequel is much more over-the-top in a way & very silly but still in a harmless fun way, it's not as great as the 90's Classic but it's still a great sequel & it's ALWAYS nice to see Sherman Klump back on screen. In this sequel Sherman's Dad nearly steals the show as he's hilarious here & does some great stuff here & really rocks his scenes!!!

I personally think that The Nutty Professor (1996) is Eddie Murphy's best film ever, it's a Comedy MASTERPIECE!!! "The Klumps" is still a very funny & very good, well made Sequel that's cheerful, colourful & Happy.
