Eddie Murphy stars as shy Dr. Sherman Klump, a kind, brilliant, calorifically challenged genetic professor. When beautiful Carla Purty joins the university faculty, Sherman grows desperate to whittle his 400-pound frame down to size and win her heart. So, with one swig of his experimental fat-reducing serum, Sherman becomes Buddy Love, a fast-talking, pumped-up , plumped down Don Juan.
