The basic premise of this film is that scientist with a low self-image realises that he can change himself using his science into someone more popular. It is the basic jeckle and hyde plot, but played for laughs.
Remake of the classic movie, made as a vehicle for Eddie Murphy. This film is classic Murphy comedy, with the transformation scene at the end being better than in the original. If you like Eddie Murphy, you will like this film. It also spawned a sequel, the nutty professor 2 - the klumps.
This film also stars James Coburn, Jada Pinkett and Larry Miller.
