The Nutty Professor (1996)

Film details


Comic re-working of the Jekyll/Hyde story. An amiable, slightly absent-minded but decidedly fat scientist, researching molecular structures, falls in love with a graduate student impressed by his work. In his efforts to win her, he consumes a liquid formula he has been perfecting that transforms him into a slim, attractive - and dangerous - persona. Gradually the need for the formula increases, and the alter ego takes over.
