Consensus: While Eddie Murphy is still hilarious as the entire Klump family, the movie falls apart because of uneven pacing, a poor script, and skits that rely on being gross rather than funny.

Boston Globe

Nutty Professor II is neither funny nor endearing enough to conceal the fact that, like its star, it fills the screen with a lot of padding.

Hap Erstein
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Never manages to feel like a sustained story.

So thick with bad gas, it sours the show.

Rape that's anal and bestial! Scrotal lint! Noodly penises! One Eddie Murphy character desperately begging to give another one gummy oral sex in a hot tub! Bring the whole family!

sidelined by a convoluted storyline whipped up by no less than four screenwriters, all of whom seem to have been working at cross-purposes.

Weak script, bad direction, bad acting, poor film. At least, The Klumps, sometimes apparently looks a fun picture. Rotten.
