About the Movie

Jerry Lewis directed, co-wrote and starred in this riotously funny movie that set a new standard for screen comedy and inspired the hit remake. Lewis plays a timid, nearsighted chemistry teacher who discovers a magical potion that can transform him into a suave and handsome Romeo. The Jekyll and Hyde game works well enough until the concoction starts to wear off at the most embarrassing times, and the professor begins to suffer hilarious symptoms of his personality split. Co-starring Stella Stevens.

The Nutty Professor (1993)

This is an excellent movie that is great for the whole family! (+ Jerry Lewis isn't hard on the eyes either!) [THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1993 VERSION] I HIGHLY recommend any Jerry Lewis film. Once you watch one you have to watch em all! This movie is timeless.

The Nutty Professor

This movie is a must see on your own or the whole family. I LOVE IT! I can tell you it non-stop laughing. Unlike other movies that are questionable this movie and all Jerry Lewis movies are a blast.

Jerry Lewis is too MUCH! Laugh until your sides hurt. Good family fun.
