The Nutty Professor (1996)

1We first see Sherman preparing to go to work at Wellman college where he is an professor teaching chemistry to college students but once he arrives there? he discovers that most of his hamsters because his stomach raised the switch before he left it the night before? had escape and is all over the campus.

It angers his boss Dean Richmond and he confronts Sherman about the incident but he sees an hamster on the ceiling about to fall in his coffee and tries to tell him about it but he tells Sherman that he has arrange a meeting with a wealthy benefactor who could save the school's science department and he better not do anything to mess it up or ELSE, in 1 of his chemistry classes? his stomach was so close to the chalkboard that it erases notes he wanted the students study for a pop quiz and after he was finished? he sees chalk all over it while the students burst out laughing.

Buddy's an hour late for their date at the same night club where they were made fun of at and eats more than 1 plate of the same meal but he was able to avenge Carla and himself by insulting Reggie by making jokes about him and punching him in the face causing him to fall into the piano but the joy turned into horror once the transformation from physically fit to obese AGAIN but Buddy manages to leave the restaurant driving the viper he arrived in.

One of his students, Jason, discovers Sherman's secret while in having a course collusion in the car, but a fireman had to get Sherman out of the car because he was to big for it. Dean Richman confronts Sherman about him as Buddy putting the payment for the Viper on his faculty account and tells him he arranged a meeting for him to meet with Harlan Heartly, a billionaire who plans to give $10 million dollars to fund the college's science department.

And he would give the school the money if he were to prove his formula works and Dean threatens to fire Sherman if he didn't show up, Meanwhile Sherman invites Carla to have dinner with him and his family but just as the meeting between them go well? Cletus's farts ruins dinner AGAIN and the whole family is embarrassed by it. On the night of the meeting at The Ritz?

She slaps Buddy while he tells her that what the women were saying was true, she dumps him and leaves the restaurant.

Sherman starts to see that being Buddy isn't all that great as he hears Carla knocking on the door and entering his house but finds the 3 women from The Ritz sleeping by his side and his house being all messy because Buddy threw a party after he left The Ritz, he tries to get Carla to leave but she insists on telling him about Dean replacing him with Buddy but during the conversation?
