A restaurant scene mostly misfires simply because a lot of the dialogue is incomprehensible and the characters all talk over each other. In the original, Buddy Love was funny and charismatic. Here, he's a loud irritant, so it's just as well that the film focuses on the other Klumps. NUTTY PROFESSOR II opens October 6 Film 99 550 Index 541 TV Choice 593 Review Film 2000 Showbiz Music
