Report
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.

Although Sherman finds the main love interest’s home address through his work’s directory and just shows up unannounced. Probably normal-ish at the time but kind of creepy now.

The protagonist is a morbidly obese college professor who struggles with self esteem/body image issues revolving around his weight. He is preoccupied with the fact that he is overweight despite the people he cares about in his life being supportive, and he creates a serum to become thin because he thinks that is what everyone wants him to be.

In a dream sequence, a godzilla-sized Sherman Klump farts and someone lighting a match ignites it, creating a mushroom cloud explosion very similar to a nuclear bomb.
