Sherman Klump, is a brilliant and a very fat man. One day he meets a beautiful and charming woman named Carla Purty, and he falls in love with her.
He is aware to the fact, though, that he is a clumsy fat guy, while she is a young gorgeous lady. This makes him feel depressed, but he finds the solution for his problem.
He decides to drink a potion which he invented himself in his lab. The potion makes him everything he wanted to be.
The new him, Buddy Love, is the perfect solution for Klump, in his opinion. But is that what Carla really wants........
Yes the film has plenty of fart jokes, and has been lambasted by. Any for being to in the toilets regarding the humour, but look deeper, and you have one of the most heartwarming comedies of the nineties, and a hilarious movie to boot.
The scene in the club where Chapelle is heckling Klump, is one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the movie, or really any comedy come to think of it, and this is down to the talent that Murphy has, yes he has made a few bombs the last few years, but this really shows his comic genius and great acting skills.
The family scenes are brilliant and so funny, you really believe that all those characters are sitting round that table and interacting.
Buddy Love surprisingly lets the film down. He starts off okay, but by the end he's just a pantomime villain who really really overacts.
So all in all, it was a great return to form for Murphy, and like I've already said, proves that he is a really talented actor and comedian.
