What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie includes lots of gross, raunchy episodes. Don't be fooled by the PG-13 -- it's not appropriate for middle schoolers and younger kids. If there's a bodily function -- or dysfunction -- to make fun of, you'll see it in this movie. There are jokes about poop pellets shooting out of the rear of a giant hamster, which also sexually abuses a man. A huge bulge grows behind Dr. Klump's zipper until his alter ego Buddy Love bursts forth. There's a harsh portrayal of the sexuality of middle-aged and elderly people and talk of Viagra. When the grandmother grabs a man for a big, sloppy kiss, he throws up.

Totally Innapropriate & Doesnt add up to original

What's the story?

In this sequel, overweight professor Sherman Klump (Eddie Murphy) begins, uncontrollably, to speak like his nasty alter-ego, Buddy Love, especially when he is around dream girl Professor Denice Gains (Janet Jackson). Klump tries to eradicate Buddy Love for once and for all through genetic alteration, but when the excised genetic material is mixed with a dog hair, Buddy Love emerges as a separate person, albeit one who likes to sniff things and play catch. Meanwhile, the university wants to sell Professor Klump's youth formula of $150 million, but Buddy Love wants that money for himself.

Is it any good?

It's a shame that somewhere inside this gross-out raunch-fest is some real acting and some real stories and characters we'd like to know better. Eddie Murphy is phenomenally talented, and the special effects wizards create six different completely believable characters. You'll forget that one person is playing seven parts.

The romance between Sherman and Denice had a lot of possibilities -- two brilliant but insecure scientists trying to connect to each other. Murphy allows us a tantalizing glimpse of how tender Sherman is, and how much he longs for Denice -- until the next hamster poop joke comes along.
