Hilarious, cynical and yet life-affirming.

"The Nutty Professor" never fails to amuse and touch me, no matter how may times I watch it. Kelp is an enormously sympathetic character whom nobody seems to like, while Buddy is an egotistical monster who dazzles students and staff alike. Lewis makes the point that it is not only Kelp who is unable to accept himself, but society is overly impressed by the flashy, the handsome, the glib and the shallow. Kelp's path to self-awareness isn't just a personal wake-up call, but an implied social critique.

Stella is the only protagonist apart from Kelp who processes on anything other than a superficial level. Her kindness to the professor hints at a deeper attraction, at least to the point where she acknowledges his attraction to her. Yet, the two bottles of formula in her jeans' pockets implies an incredibly cynical double-standard. Yes, she prefers Kelp's sincerity, his love, his kindheartedness, but she'd rather have Buddy Love in her bed. Edwina Kelp, similarly, has been tamed into girlish giggling submission by her newly confident and, one must assume, sexually dominant husband.

A couple of reviewers have mentioned that they don't find the film terribly funny. Have you had a fun-ectomy, people? Kelp's first visit to Dr Warfield's office (the seat, the watch, the fish, "your greens"); the business with his glasses having no home at the gym ("Actually, I'd appreciate it.."); the flashback to his parents early married life; Buddy ordering a cocktail; Buddy hijacking Stella's test ("Write nice!")......it goes on and on and on. Best bit, though, is Kelp's solo dance at the prom. Gets me every time, and I watch this flick at least twice a year...it certainly is a toe-tapper. Well, zip and I'm gone.

Lewis' most personal film is magic if you know his backstory

This film changed for me after I read "King of Comedy: The Life and Art Of Jerry Lewis" by Shawn Levy. Conventional wisdom at the time about this Jekyll and Hyde story about timid Prof. Julius Kelp creating a formula that turns him into brash ladies man Buddy Love is that Lewis was making a dig at his old comedy partner, Dean Martin. Levy posits that Lewis was not making a film mocking the behavior of Martin but was in actuality condemning (and apologizing for) his own real-life off-screen behavior as a loud-mouth, self-centered, know-it-all. SPOILER ALERT! At the end of the film, when timid Kelp apologizes to everyone for his behavior as Buddy Love and says, "I think that the lesson that I learned came just in time. I don't want to be something that I'm not. I didn't like being someone else. At the same time I'm very glad I was cause I found out something that I never knew. You might as well like yourself. Just think about all the time you're going to have to spend with you. And if you don't think too much of yourself, how do you expect others to?" This was Lewis making a extremely personal and candid confession about himself under the guise of Kelp, and re-watching this film knowing Lewis' personal history, this scene is utterly heartbreaking to watch. Most of Lewis' films have a tendency to get overly sappy and maudlin, but the sappiness in this film really works for me and which is why this is my favorite Lewis film. Additionally, the comedy is funnier than most of Lewis' films, which I usually find funny in kind of an odd clinical if not genuinely funny way. It's as if he's presenting a formula for how to make a comedy, which seems to work, but for whatever reason often seems forced and not consistently funny. But with "The Nutty Professor" it all works and I believe Lewis created a American film classic. Oh, and the one scene where Lewis is lifting weights and his arms get stretched out made my mind explode as a kid.

Jerry Lewis in a Dual role as Himself

This classic movie from Jerry Lewis co-written by Bill Richmond and himself is an interesting and funny story but also a window into the Jerry Lewis mind during the height of his popularity as a solo performer. Lewis plays Professor Julius Kelp, a brilliant but bumbling, stumbling, and stuttering scientist who creates an alter ego, Buddy Love, to help him overcome his perceived inadequacies. Trying to distinguish the two and figure out whether they are really the same person is Stella Purdy, played by Stella Stevens, who becomes the object of Jerry Lewis' affections on and reportedly off-screen as well. The film shows the transformation of Kelp from wuss to playboy as a result of a formula he develops in his lab. You have to suspend some disbelief that nobody can figure out the difference between the two just from essentially no glasses and a new hairdo and clothes. Although Lewis makes the voice the ultimate disguise to distract from the obvious similarities. I did end up wondering how much of Lewis' real personality was on display between Professor Kelp and Buddy Love. Probably a lot. The film is visually stunning, with an incredible array of vibrant colors in the backdrops and sets, as well as Stevens' wardrobe. The film has plenty of laughs from the pratfalls and sight gags. Not a lot of sophisticated, witty banter but is that really what you come for in a Jerry Lewis movie? I won't give you the moral of the story but you can probably figure it out for yourself. Some things seem dated but it is very much a sit back, relax, and enjoy the show type of movie even today.
