Nutty Professor II: The Klumps



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Eddie Murphy stars as both Sherman Klump and the whole Klump clan, in this sequel to the 1996 film. This time Sherman has a new potion and new love interest (Janet Jackson). With Larry Miller, John Ales, Anna Maria Horsford, Melinda McGraw, Jamal Mixon and Gabriel Williams. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - All of this is played mainly for laughs and some of the "women" are actually played by a man (Eddie Murphy): A lot of sexual innuendo, including lots of references to penis size and erections, and references to ménage à trois and homosexuality. We see a woman with lots of cleavage and when a man stares at her, he develops an erection we can see through his pants as it grows to cartoonish proportions. A woman rubs her own clothed breasts in excitement, and a woman with exposed cleavage has her shirt ripped open until her bra shows. A scene of suggestive dancing includes a man thrusting against the ground. From another room we hear moaning and a bed squeaking. We briefly see dogs mating in one scene and hamsters mating in another. It is implied that a man is raped by a giant hamster (see Violence/Gore below). A man strips down to his pants and suspenders at a party of women, and a woman strips for a man and french kisses him. A woman runs in a field with her large breasts showing through her clothes. An old woman dives underwater in a hot tub; she's without her dentures and fellatio is implied. A woman receives a gift of a teddy with crotch-less panties and holes over the nipples. We see a nude baby bottom.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Primarily played for laughs: A man is kicked in the face, a man is "born" out of another man's body, a man holds another's head underwater (but to help him, not hurt him) and a man is choking and the Heimlich maneuver is performed. A man's hand is slapped and fluid is drawn from a man (the process is similar to having blood drawn). During three different scenes a man convulses, screams and falls, and glass breaks. Some goo on the floor becomes a hand. A man accidentally kills a parrot (we just hear squawks), and there's a fistfight between two men. A person is thrown into a garbage can, is kicked into a garbage can, and a person is blown back against a wall. A man hits another man on the head with a rolled up newspaper. A giant hamster roars and people stampede out of the room; it's implied that the hamster rapes a man (later the man has claw marks on his suit and can't sit down). A man tries to shoot the giant hamster, and the hamster shoots out giant pellets of feces at the man who's blown back several feet by the force of the impact. A baby punches someone and then urinates on the person's face. A man passes gas which sets curtains on fire, and there are a couple more scenes where people pass gas and a man vomits. Reckless driving and a violent storm.

PROFANITY 6 - One F-word derivative and one flipped bird, many obscenities, scatological references and anatomical references; one racial slur. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Obesity, the academic life, scientific research, families.

MESSAGE - We don't always like every aspect of our personalities, but must accept the bad with the good anyway.

Special Keywords: S7 - V5 - P6 - MPAAPG-13

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
