NUTTY PROFESSOR 2: THE KLUMPS [ 2000 ], directed by Peter Segal.
Scientist Sherman Klump's (Eddie Murphy) inventions, his upcoming marriage to his pretty colleague Denise Gaines (Janet Jackson) and his reputation are threatened by his evil clone Buddy Love (Eddie Murphy), who begins to look for his way out of Sherman's subconciousness.
So, the 'family' is back. Eddie Murphy, once again, reprises all the roles (!!!), he played in the first film and we get one radiculous sequel, which ended up being just as underrated as it's predecessor.
The main difference between the two films was the Klump family's screentime. We get to know them all a little better, with Eddie's over-the-top, comedic, one-man-show performance, even learn to like them for what they were.
A gorgeous Janet Jackson, for some reason, replaces Jada Pinckett and her character from the first film here, and I think it's a good thing. I never liked Jada's character nor her performance, and not seeing her reprise the role didn't anger me at all, as it usually does.
The plot in here differs only by little. We have even more crazy sci-fi crazyness, which is backed by messy CGI and predictibility.
One huge plus, I think, is a dramatic aspect, which is well balanced with, not always, but mostly ok humor, which is ruined by never ending and annoying fart jokes parade.
All in all, the film is still a lazy and uncomplicated comedy, which is pretty much fine with me. It's easily watchable and I never took it seriously, thus enjoying it as much as I did. If you ask me, this movie I grade with, again surprisingly overrating, 7/10.
If you look for a smart and hilarious at the same time comedic experrience, then you've got the wrong movie here. This is the film, before watching which, you have to turn your brains off completely, to be able, if not enjoy it, then at least not hate it.
