Nick and I saw this yesterday after we found out we couldn’t move in to our new place because it was filthy and needed a lot of fixin’ and a new paint job everywhere. I was a big, big fan of the first Eddie Murphy “Nutty Professor” and deeply in need of some cheering up from my favorite family, the Klumps. Did it work? Not quite. The direction was inept at best, the screenplay was stupid, and Janet Jackson should stick to making dance records. Eddie Murphy tried and tried, but just couldn’t keep this movie from failing miserably. I liked the Klump family again, and some of the scenes were genuinely funny, especially with Grandma. But one man cannot save a movie, and I imagine he improvised all the funny bits anyway. It’s really too bad.
