"My five year old son got this as a gift from a family member and it was surprisingly good! Super entertaining and full of gags and cutting edge action sequences. This ranks among the years best animated films. It was great to see Jerry Lewis again as well. He plays both the title character and his alter ego Buddy Love from the original. At 82 years old his performance is hilarious and was nice to see this version of the franchise more closely tied to the original than the Eddie Murphy versions. Drake Bell is excellent as Harold and Jack and the supporting characters are superb."

"I must admit, I was intrigued(yet a little skeptical) when I seen that a CGI version of The Nutty Professor had been made. Course, when I seen that Jerry Lewis was doing a voice in the movie, I decided to get the DVD. To be sure, Jerry Lewis wouldn't do something like this if it didn't do his original vision justice. Well, I was right in that assumption. This movie, even though it is directed more towards kids, is a fun CGI film that is nearly on par with the likes of "Open Season" and "Ice Age" with some pretty decent CGI.
The plot, itself, is about a kid named Harold Kelp. When his grandfather, Julius, offers him the opportunity to attend a high tech school, the boy jumps at the chance. Hoping to impress a girl he has his eye on, he works on a class project to build-race and win an annual school bike challenge but he fails. When he stumbles across his grandfather's database, he learns of a formula that can make him charismatic, and coordinated. Yet, the potion soon unleashes his deepest and darkest fears & that's when things get interesting.
While it may not be Pixar quality CGI and filmmaking, it still is a fun and decent romp into the world of The Nutty Professor again. I highly recommend it. I think kids and adults will like this take. I loved it. I really loved it!!!"
Jerry Lewis is the man!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"I saw this on here about 3 weeks ago looking for the 1963 version and stumbled upon a 2008 CGI remake of it and I thought oh no someone else is going to destroy Jerry Lewis's masterpiece and as soon as I saw The King of Comedy Jerry Lewis as a character, I just had to get it no questions asked. I watched it and man I knew he wouldn't do it unless he could have it done in his "unique" way and I wasn't disappointed. This is kinda of a sequel from the original in 1963 with Stella Stevens, Jerry Lewis, and Kathleen Morgan. His grandson has failed at a competition and is trying to impress a girl he likes. Well, he finds his grandfather's Buddy Love juice I'll call it and and tries it on himself and the results are close to that of when professor Kelp tried it in 1963. Loved the originality, Jerry Lewis, and also some pretty good CGI for this family style movie. Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"The movie is alright......but the bonus is having the one and only
Jerry Lewis helps by lending his voice for one of the Characters.
Even the animators did their best to not only hear Jerry , but to see
him through his character...good job guys/gals.
The movie itself is not too bad...3 stars.
