The Nutty Professor (1996)

Sherman Klump is a shy and tremendously overweight man but with a good heart. He is a college professor who desperately wants to be thin, researching and testing a DNA reconstruction solution formula that can make him thin. When he meets a beautiful woman named Carla Purty, Sherman tests the formula on himself and he's instantly transformed into the trim but obnoxious Buddy Love. As Sherman keeps turning into Buddy, Buddy puts the moves on Carla, soon devising a plan of his own to get rid of Sherman permanently so he can be with Carla and take credit for his work. Funny and touching; Eddie Murphy is amazing, playing seven different characters in the film. Starring Eddie Murphy, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Coburn, Larry Miller, Dave Chappelle, Montell Jordan 7/10
