Nutty Professor (1996)
|Murphy stars as Dr. Sherman klump, a kind, calorically challenged 400-pound frame in order to win the heart of beautiful jada pinkett.|
Editor's NoteEddie Murphy stars as a grossly overweight chemistry professor in this update of the classic 1963 Jerry Lewis comedy. Eager to reinvent himself and to ease his loneliness, the professor develops a potion that magically transforms him into a lean, mean, sex machine, capable of seducing any woman in sight, but he loses his niceness along the way. Academy Award Nominations: Best Makeup.

Not much of a plot, but as a comedy Eddie's characters are hilarious. I purchased the DVD just for the 2 table scene's!
Eddie Murphy does a great job portraying multiple characters, and easily beats the Jerry Lewis version of old. Need a laugh? This film should give you many.
