A fine, funny, touching film??? They make sense first, THEN are funny, rather than the other way around or just being silly because no one could think of anything funny to write. For Eddie Murphy to have pulled that off so seamlessly only showed his range and his talent. Lewis–who also directs–plays Professor Julius Kelp, a bizarrely nerdy-but-stupid chemistry professor. Both Stevens and Del Moore, as Dr. The performances are quite good. Accessibility SDH Subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing SDH refer to subtitles in the original language with the addition of relevant, non-dialogue information. I found this movie to be a pleasant surprise.
There’s also a great version of “Stella by Starlight” in the background of a couple scenes. Les Brown’s “Band of Renown” even makes an on screen appearance, performing a couple songs at a college dance. Smith is always genuine in her interest in Sherman; and his bashfulness and sincerity are truly endearing. But overriding the gas glee is a thoughtful story about a fat man dealing with his weight and trying to find romance. On a later day, a football student who was denied permission to leave class early for football practice responds by stuffing Kelp into a shelf. When he discovers a magic potion that turns the nerd into “Buddy Love”, his luck with the ladies appears to change. Kelp’s final speech at the Prom, when his appearance as Buddy Love has been cut catastrophically short, is indeed “heart-wrenching”, but as both a summing-up of the main themes of the movie and a token of Kelp’s increased self-knowledge, it is indispensable. Both the nerd and the debonair but sublimely obnoxious hipster were supposedly amalgamations of different people Lewis had encountered over the years.

I found this movie to be a pleasant surprise. Given such wide-ranging moods and aims, it’s probably best to watch the film without genre expectations. Ever since I saw this movie as a child back in the late 60s it has haunted my imagination, and taken on a mythic existence that floats free of its actual content and context.
Anyway, to get to The Nutty Professor, I found it to be one of the most sympathetic portrayals of fat people ever put on film. As a clumsy, yet lovable chemistry professor, the title character could hardly be considered a “babe magnet”. He was so humiliated by his family’s actions that he had the most mortified look on his face, and a couple of times you could even see him attempt to cut his wrist with a butter knife.
He has a knack for conducting dangerous, unauthorized experiments in the presence of students. On a later day, a football student who was denied permission to leave class early for football practice responds by stuffing Kelp into a shelf.
It never looks fake. Sherman Klump, desperate to lose weight takes a special chemical that turns him into the slim but obnoxious Buddy Love. Lewis considers this his best film. It is surely on such grounds that Jerry Lewis’s masterpiece, “The Nutty Professor”, might be dismissed as “dated” or be found “unfunny”. Bodily function humor galore marks Murphy sequel. The Nutty Professor is also a “message” film. In any event, Love is entertaining to watch–he’s something like a glossy trainwreck.
Still, the similarities to Martin are difficult to deny; perhaps the character was partially a subconscious parody of Martin.
Artists in This Film See All. If kindly Kelp is crippled by involuted intelligence, the sybaritic, self-seeking Buddy Love is stunted by affectlessness. Kelp’s final speech at the Prom, when his appearance as Buddy Love has subritles cut catastrophically short, is indeed “heart-wrenching”, but as both a summing-up of the main themes of the movie and a token of Kelp’s increased self-knowledge, it is indispensable.
On recently viewing it again on a borrowed videocassette I was startled by the internal organisation of the movie, by its pacing, and by the fact that Kelp’s odious alter-ego, Buddy Love, who dominates the movie conceptually, is actually on screen for so little of its longish running-time. They make sense first, THEN are funny, rather than the other way around or just being silly because no one could think of anything funny to write.
He is also by no means entirely free of Kelp’s flaws; his clumsiness during the slow dance with Stella shows how sbutitles of Kelp’s personality continue to permeate his, and point to the incompleteness and volatility of the metamorphosis. Which is probably a good thing, because even though I didn’t laugh out loud very frequently while watching The Nutty Professor, I did enjoy it quite a bit, despite the flaws.
The special subtitlrs that gave Murphy his blubber are truly astounding. In the end, he learns that appearance profeessor less important than character. I think you might, too.
And no one was more surprised than me. One of those modes that works surprisingly well is the musical material. Open Menu Close Menu Apple.
Lewis paints Kelp as primarily a wiz at being a slightly sympathetic dork, where his cockeyed chemistry successes are more accidental. It is far superior to its s Eddie Murphy remake.
Subtitles for YIFY movie The Nutty Professor
Kelley had a more than respectable, varied background, including camera experience on a couple Alfred Hitchcock films–To Catch A Thief and Vertigo –and Cecil B. In my opinion this is one of the funniest movies you will ever see.
I bet the “French” were inspired by raabic performance, when they named Jerry Lewis their comedy idol.
And when Buddy gets loose, things get seriously nutty. This brilliant and disturbing film uses comedy as a vehicle to explore serious questions about the nature of identity.
