Trio of Eddie Murphy comedies. In 'The Nutty Professor' (1996), Sherman Klump (Murphy) is a shy, overweight chemistry professor who invents a slimming formula which transforms him into the svelte, fast-talking Buddy Love. He can now date his colleague Carla Purty (Jada Pinkett), but when Buddy starts to take over, Sherman risks being lost forever. Murphy plays Sherman, Buddy and five other roles in the film that revitalised his comedy career. In 'The Nutty Professor 2' (2000), Murphy returns as Professor Sherman Klump (not to mention Ernie Klump, Granny Klump, and Mama and Papa Klump). Having decided to get married, the portly professor asks for the hand of fellow scientist Denise Gaines (Janet Jackson) and is overjoyed when she accepts. But when Klump's fast-talking alter-ego Buddy Love comes back on the scene, the ensuing havoc threatens to ruin all the professor's plans. Finally, in 'Daddy Day Care' (2003), when Charlie Hinton (Murphy) and Phil (Jeff Garlin) are fired for a disastrous advertising campaign, they find themselves looking after their children whilst their partners go back to work. However, as they have had to cut-back, with Charlie taking his son out of an expensive day-care run by Ms Harridan (Anjelica Huston), they decide that since if it's what they do anyway, why not set up their own day-care centre. Despite the usual pitfalls that come with looking after other people's children, the centre becomes a success; but Ms Harridan is looking for revenge as their gain is her loss...
