The 52 Worst Films of the 2000s

Movies You Aught Not Watch: The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

Movies You Aught Not Watch is Nick Rogers’ weekly, alphabetical look back at the 52 worst films of 2000-2009.

“The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps”
Rated PG-13

There are students finalizing master’s degrees in psychology who were newborns when Eddie Murphy last headlined a brilliant live-action comedy. And if they’re still debating their dissertation, they might consider Murphy’s psychosexual fixations, given nauseating display in 2000’s “The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.”

Murphy plays eight characters — portly Sherman Klump, horndog alter ego Buddy Love and all but one of the remaining Klumps. But counting a baby that pees in Larry Miller’s mouth and a nightmare in which Sherman’s penis is Buddy’s face, it’s a nice, round 10.

So the buttocks wouldn’t feel left out, Murphy enlisted a plethora of writers to test the PG-13 limits of violent anal content.

In addition to numerous farts (flames optional), Sherman excretes Buddy, and, during a dream sequence set in space, Sherman farts the string punctuations of the “Blue Danube” waltz before revealing the “Star Wars” Force to be flatulence — the only thing fouler than midichlorians.

Lest too much be read into the film’s dreams, be sure to examine what its reality entails. There, a giant hamster torpedoes turds from its own ass before violating Larry Miller’s, who later mulls whether to insert said hamster, now reduced back to normal size, into his rectum. (On the scale of cinematic dignity, Miller escapes just one rung above the star of a snuff film.)

Rape that’s anal and bestial! Scrotal lint! Noodly penises! One Eddie Murphy character desperately begging to give another one gummy oral sex in a hot tub!

Bring the whole family!

    love eddie murphy but this movie sucks

  2. LATRICE says:

    This movie was terrible on all counts. I did enjoy some of his earlier work such as Coming to America and Trading Places. Eddie Murphy should have known better, especially having children. It just shows that people will do anything for the mighty dollar. I give this movie 2 thumbs down and recommend that you don’t allow your children to watch it.

  3. Nick says:

    the first one was funny, second one sucked. dont watch it

    John: For me, the only two live-action Eddie Murphy films that have been tolerable since "Coming to America" were his first "Nutty Professor" film and "Dreamgirls." Even then, I didn’t particularly care for either one. Thanks for reading!

    Ty: Thanks for the compliment! I’m no prude, and I have no problem with scatological humor if it’s funny and thematically expected. Here, it was just grotesque. Thanks for reading!

    Cynthia: Such good taste has no doubt guided you well later in life. Thanks for reading!

    wow, what a throwback. even as a kid, i knew that was gonna be a bad movie.

  7. Ty says:

    This had to be one of the worst Eddie Murphy movies of all times. I grew up watching his live performances & was disgusted with this so-called family friendly movie. Two thumbs way down for me. Great review.

  8. John says:

    I do think this was a horrible movie. I am a big fan of Eddie Murphy but really thought this movie tanked!!
