The Franchise Collection Version.....Be Wary!

"First of all, I have no gripe with the movies contained on this DVD: THE NUTTY PROFESSOR I & II....they're both side-splitting funny and worth owning (see other reviews for the plots). My review is intended to warn would-be buyers to stay away from the Franchise Collection DVD containing both movies, one on each side. This DVD may seem like a bargain price-wise, but it's an inferior pressing. Both movies froze up horribly. Right from the start of the Nutty Professor, during the Universal introduction, it began breaking up. It eventually played, but froze up again later. In the case of the Nutty Professor II, the last scene froze up so badly that it jumped right to the End Credits. I never saw the conclusion of the film. Just to make sure that it wasn't my new Samsung DVD player at fault, I inserted the DVD in my PC and the same thing happened, even worse. Never have I had a DVD so defective. I'm beginning to wonder if the DVD was a pirated pressing. In any case, I ended up ordering the two movies separately through Amazon. Perhaps dual-sided DVDs are just prone to defects. Be wary...you've been warned."

"Eddie Murphy is a riot in these two equally funny comedies, The Nutty Professor I and II. His performances of the entire Klump family (except the young nephew) are so distinctive, you sometimes forget that he's playing all of them! Jada Pinkett Smith and Janet Jackson also give fine performances. James Coburn's minor role is a marvel in the first film.
One drawback to this DVD is that the powers that be could've at least put some special features for Part I (maybe some more bloopers). But all in all, this is a must-own."

"THE NUTTY PROFESSOR 1 & 2 IS FUNNY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY TO ENJOY TOGETHER, IF YOU HAVE EDDIE MURPHY SENSE OF HUMOR IT IS EVEN BETTER."
