  • Critic Reviews
    "...Murphy's portrayal of Sherman Klump is surprisingly warm and touching..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...A remake that improves upon the original....[A] career-reviving smash [for Murphy]....A sweet spirit..." -- Rating: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...A surprisingly funny comedy and respectable remake..."
    USA Today

    "...Apt and comic....Combining the riotously funny and the sweetly sentimental....Miller is at his obsequious best....[Pinkett] demonstrates that her range ranks her among the most versatile young performers in movies..."
    Variety

    "...[Murphy's] back with exuberance and energy....He's very good. And the movie succeeds in two different ways: It's sweet and good-hearted, and then again it's raucous slapstick and bathroom humor..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
