Eddie Murphy gives the "performances" of his career playing no less than seven roles in the comedy.
Murphy stars as Dr. Sherman Klump, a kind, "calorically challenged" genetics professor who longs to shed his 400-pound frame in order to win the heart of beautiful Jada Pinkett. So, with one swig of his experimental fat-reducing serum, Sherman becomes "Buddy Love," fast-talking, pumped-up, plumped down Don Juan.
Can Sherman stop his buff alter ego before it’s too late, or will Buddy have the last laugh?
Boasting incredible special effects, a super soundtrack, and co-starring James Coburn, Larry Miller, Dave Chappelle, and John Ales, this hilarious hit is worth its weight in fun!
