Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

September 11, 2000

I am now stupider for having watched this.

Admittedly, I laughed my ass off while I was watching The Klumps, but I felt so bad about it afterwards. Any scene with the Klumps in it was hilarious – but any scene without them was just boring – especially the ones with Buddy Love. The Buddy Love character was decent in the first film – a real character – but Buddy Love was just a stupid charicature in this one…a very annoying one at that.

Eddie Murphy has reached the pinnacle of how much he can entertain me personally. I am not too much of an Eddie Murphy fan, unless of course it is Saturday Night Live…or maybe The Golden Child. Grandma Klump is some scary ass shit. Eddie Murphy himself…ehh, I can do without.

The hamster rape will haunt me for the rest of my life. I think they had an extra joke left over from Dr. Doolittle and they couldn’t bear to part with it.

Yeah, Janet Jackson would marry Professor Klump. Sure. That was only slightly more likely than ANY of the pseudo-scientific bullshit that was in that film….I am not even going to go into the DNA extraction scene…

Chris Elliot was in this film and DID NOT EVEN HAVE A LINE!!!!! Blasphemy…

Wait until it comes on cable….and ponder how this 106 minute fart joke got a PG-13 rating.
