Our Score
In this amusing sequel to Eddie Murphy's 1996 success (itself a remake of the 1963 Jerry Lewis comedy), Murphy gets to play rotund scientist Sherman Klump and his entire corpulent family (bar one, his little brother), including his father at two different ages. His performance is an amazing tour de force, which could be compared to the best work of Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers if it weren't for the fact that half the time he's unintelligible. The basis of the new story is an amusing variation on The Fly: Klump is desperate to rid himself of his slim, supercool alter ego, Buddy Love, but only manages to regenerate (and mutate) him. Janet Jackson is sweetly effective, playing it straight as Klump's long-suffering girlfriend, while the writers also manage to include the Fountain of Youth and a giant, sex-mad hamster in the mix. This, and a lot of scatological humour, forms the very silly premise, yet children (and adults with an extremely juvenile sense of fun) will adore it.

Summary

Bumbling scientist Sherman Klump is engaged to be married and determined to rid himself of his troublesome alter ego Buddy Love for ever. All his problems look set to be solved by his fiancee's latest DNA experiment - but things are about to spiral out of control. Comedy sequel, starring Eddie Murphy in multiple roles, along with Janet Jackson and Larry Miller.
