The Nutty Professor
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3 Stars
The Nutty Professor Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: On TV Saw at/with:
Rating: NR Year: 1963 Category: Comedy
Director: Jerry Lewis Time: 107 min. Writer: Jerry Lewis & Bill Richmond

Mine: Lewis' best solo film. Great gags and interesting situations.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Jerry's wildest (and most narcissistic) comedy casts him as chipmunk-faced college professor who does Jekyll-and-Hyde transformation into swaggering Buddy Love (whom some have interpreted as a Dean Martin caricature). More interesting than funny, although "Alaskan Polar Bear Heater" routine with Buddy Lester is a riot; Lewis buffs regard this as his masterpiece. Remade in 1996.

This is NOT one of Jerry's very very best, but it does have some funny moments. I love when he has the long arms and big feet in the bed!
