Lewis's best and with tons of footage
Edward W. Weibe | maryland | 10/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own this classic now. I watched the extra features on the DVD and all of the coverage on the other work of Jerry's . After about a half an hour, I realized there is also a movie on this disk. I could not believe how much material is on this ONE disk. I strongly reccomend this and when you get it, watch it with the commentary track turned on for Jerry's comments as the show plays. The widescreen DVD format is fabulous. The color and clarity are fantastic, and the big band sound and sound effects are richer than ever."

"This Classic film shows the incredible comedic range of Jerry Lewis as a goofy buck tooth professor with an exagerated low self esteem. He finds that one of his gorgeous students Miss Purdy played well by Stella Stevens takes some sort of interest to him. As the professor he stumbles on a potion that can change his genetics into an overly arrogant good looking man who lacks the one thing that would win Purdy over. Sensitivity. The characters name Buddy Love is said by some to have been based on former rat pack partner Dean Martin. Buddy Loves character was an inspiration for comedian Andrew Dice Clay as Dice has said, "Your not here because your Not attracted to me. And you can see I dig you pretty well myself." Eddie Murphys remake although good could never over shadow this classic comedy. Lewis as Professor Kelp at the prom with his goofy dance steps is hilarious. This movie is timeless and I highly reccomend it to everyone. This movies 1963 release gives you some sense of the simple wholesome lifestyle of the early sixties. As a male I can't help but fall for Stella Stevens every time. Jerry Lewis proves in this movie he's a comic genius!"
Jerry's Masterpiece
Scott T. Rivers | Los Angeles, CA USA | 11/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Nutty Professor" (1963) remains one of the comic masterworks of the past 50 years. It's certainly Jerry Lewis' best film and perhaps his best performance. Jerry's portrayal of Professor Kelp/Buddy Love is superb. As a director, Lewis shows remarkable style and timing. There are many classic setpieces, but the highlight is the Jekyll-and-Hyde transformation sequence that introduces Buddy Love. Jerry also assembled his finest cast, with memorable contributions from co-star Stella Stevens, Del Moore, Kathleen Freeman, Buddy Lester and Howard Morris. The 1996 Eddie Murphy remake - though an enjoyable film in its own right - doesn't come close to the inspired brilliance of the original."
