Eddie Murphy stars as Professor Sherman Klump who, in The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, finds himself trying to contain his mouthy alter ego, Buddy Love, who rudely speaks out in front of Sherman
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture that will surely please in all aspects of image quality. Images are sharp and finely detailed, though there are a few softly focused scenes. Colors are rich and nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. Minor pixelization and artifacts are noticed, but generally do not distract. (Suzanne Hodges)
WSR DVD-ROM Review
DVD-ROM Enhancements Rating:
Just like all the other PCFriendly compatible releases, The Klumps has the same easy installation. After running PCFriendly, you are brought to a very plain main menu, with links for The Family, The Film, Nutty Stuff, Nutty Features, and DVD Newsletter. The Family is where you can find filmographies on Eddie Murphy and Janet Jackson, as well as introductions to each of the family members in this film. There are also 12 photos from scenes of the movie in this section. The Film contains literature on the story, interviews with five contributors of the film, a soundtrack listing, biographies of the main filmmakers, and a low quality clip of the out takes. There is also the complete music video for Janet Jackson
Reason #74 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I'm a fairly avid home theatre enthusiast and like to keep up on all of the most recent development and progress relating to A/V equipment and digital media. Of all of the publications related to this topic, WSR is the most complete, most thorough, and has become the champion of enthusiasts, such as myself, in fighting for the best possible presentation of audio and video in consumer electronics and broadcast media. In addition to the very informative columns, I am very appreciative of WSR's equipment reviews and its commitment to providing a relatively honest opinion of each product. It's refreshing to see a review that does not conclude with: If you like red LED displays, don't mind just slightly bright and forward sounding gear, and absolutely have to have to have your equipment in a gold-tone color, you should go to your nearest XYZ dealer and give an audition. Itís reviews like this that leave me mystified as to why people even bother reading these other publications. I hope that WSR continues its excellent work.
