Universal Home Entertainment has added the Eddie Murphy comedy The Nutty Professor to their roster, lining up the move for release on Blu-Ray Disc for the first time in March.
Eddie Murphy gives the “performances” of his career playing no less than seven roles in this uproarious Jekyll-and-Hyde comedy from Imagine Entertainment. Murphy stars as Dr. Sherman Klump, a kind, “calorically challenged” genetics professor who longs to shed his 400-pound frame in order to win the heart of beautiful Jada Pinkett. So, with one swig of his experimental fat-reducing serum, Sherman becomes “Buddy Love”, a fast-talking, pumped-up, plumped-down Don Juan. Can Sherman stop his buff alter ego before it’s too late, or will Buddy have the last laugh?
Arriving as a 2-disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo, the release will feature a 1080p high definition transfer of the film with DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio.
Among the extras you will find on the release, you will find featurettes to celebrate Universal’s 100th Anniversary, such as 100 Years of Universal: The Lew Wasserman Era and 100 Years of Universal: Unforgettable Characters, along with the pocket BLU App. Further, the release will include a Digital Copy of the movie.
“The Nutty Professor” arrives on March 6 for only $19.98.
