Jerry Lewis' Jekyll-Hyde spoof is dated but great.

Pretty good movie, and this is coming from somewhere who isn't a Jerry Lewis fan...not by a long shot.

Jerry Lewis' best film. That's like having a heirarchy of manure.

Jerry Lewis is one of those weird comedians for me where I like him personally but I'm not all that engaged by his lengthy archive of films. The exception is The Nutty Professor the cleverly takes the Jekyl and Hyde concept and easily transitions it into a more identifiable and humorous plot. The biggest problem for me was why did Dr. Jekyl keep taking that darn formula? I don't know anyone who'd want to be Mr. Hyde, however I can certainly relate to why Pr. Kelp wants to be Buddy Love. An excellent moral tale and fantasy film, The Nutty Professor is smarter than most people give it credit for.
