Washington Post
This is good, seamless comedy, even if it's not terribly sophisticated. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Murphy is wonderful -- I wouldn't begrudge him an Oscar nomination -- but The Nutty Professor is a mess. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Mr. Murphy proves himself a surprisingly strong actor here, playing Sherman with sweetness and poignancy, not to mention loads of funny weight-related humor. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The Nutty Professor aims for guffaws at the lowest level -- anyone with a double-digit IQ will get every joke. Whether you laugh at them or not is often more of a matter of taste than a question of having a sense of humor. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Tasteful, subtle and sophisticated are a few of the words that aren't going to be applied to Eddie Murphy's version of The Nutty Professor. But funny, funny is something else again. Full Review
