Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature designed to celebrate TV and Film’s epic past.
Today’s subject? Eddie Murphy‘s remake ‘The Nutty Professor.’
In the story, which pans out over two movies, Murphy plays an overweight scientist whose life is turned upside down (for the better and worst) when he manages to create a slimmer and more confident version of himself.
Janet’s contribution to the story took place in its follow-up and even saw her celebrate the release by dropping a track in its honour.
