    There had better not be such a movie! The first two stunk, so why have a 3rd? The giant scene from the first movie scared the heck out of me and it still haunts me to this very day! Eddie Murphy's cool though. I enjoyed Norbit, but please, no Nutty Proffesor 3! I'd rather see a sequel to Thomas and the Magic Railroad!

    Personally, I don't think there should be a Nutty Prof. 3. The giant scene from the first movie creeped me out, and I doubt the 2nd was any better. What people could do is, well, there are live action takes on old cartoons being seen, such as Scooby Doo and Speed Racer. Why not a Live-Action Thomas the Tank Engine film, with real trains, not toys? It could be a tribute to David Mitton and George Carlin.

    WRONG. They already did Nutty Professor 3, without Eddie Murphy. They used some young black chick instead. So the next one will be Nutty Professor 4, not 3, you dummies!

      You're thinking of Dr DoLittle!!

        You didn't quite get my gag there. Professor, doctor – it doesn't matter because it's all the same generic Eddie Murphy junk. Same goes for his two horrible "sci-fi" tries, the recent one called Meet Dave's Head or whatever, and that other one Pluto Nash. Someone really needs to get that tranny-dating, other woman knocking up dude to quit feeding off the greed wagon, already.

          I see what you're getting at, but what about the Thomas the Tank engine thing? What do you think about that? Should it be done with real trais, or wouuld it be better to have it in CGI? I can see the people that made The Tale of Despereaux doing that. And I apologize for taking things off topic.

    No clue about a Thomas project, but isn't that British? If so, Murphy should also be allowed nowhere near it.BTW, lest anyone assume I'm a Murphy-basher, far from it – I'm instead just a junk movie basher. Murphy was excellent in lots of non-remake comedy flicks, including Trading Places, Life, Harlem Nights, Bowfinger, and several others. He was also even fine in that Haunted House deal. Just lay off the farty family fare remakes and sci-fi stuff, Eddie – it's your weakest area by far.

      You're right. Why can't Murphy go back to his old R-Rated self? I thought Coming to America was hilarious. And to answer the Thomas thing, yes Thomas is British (I apologize if the question was rhetorical), and I don't think Eddie Murphy should go near it either. If I were Murphy, I'd stick with Shrek. Don't you agree?

      • Ed Gauthier says:

        Yes, he was great in Shrek, and I'd almost forgotten about Coming To America, where he was fantastic!

    Ironically, Jerry Lewis just did a new Nutty Professor movie – a CGI film with Drake Bell as Kelp's nephew who finds/rediscoveres the potion. Lewis also returns as the titular hero.

    Hey guys, why have a 3rd movie? I have already said this movie stinks, so why don't we start talking about if there should be one, huh?

    I'd like to see Jerry Lewis and Stella Stevens in a remake with their grandkids. Eddie Murphy should be working on "Beverly Hills Cop 4".

    nutty prof 1 was very funny part 2 was ok but i think part 3 will be pushing it. ever since shrek the 3rd, all of eddie murphys movies have been box office flops and the nutty prof might do ok but compared the first 2 it will probably be another flop for him. he shoudl jsut be careful which movies he decides to star in from now on and make sure the storyline doesnt suck and isnt a rip off of a storyline that already existed
