The Nutty Professor (DTS) [DVD](1996) DVD

Eddie Murphy’s Top 5 Movies on VHS

Best Defense(1984) VHS
It's madness in the military when Eddie Murphy and Dudley Moore star in this wacky comedy. Moore is a weapons designer who builds a ``super tank,'' while Murphy is the hapless gunner who tests it, with hilarious results. 94 min.

Eddie Murphy Raw(1987) VHS
The language is raw, but the comedy is well done. Eddie Murphy shines in an outrageous concert film, taking on everyone from Michael Jackson to Bill Cosby, from feminists to bigots. Robert Townsend helms this non-stop, not-for-the-young-or-easily-offended laugh experience. 91 min.

Coming To America(1988) VHS
Can a 21-year-old African prince find happiness and the girl of his dreams while working incognito at a fast food restaurant in Queens? If the prince is Eddie Murphy, then the answer is a hilarious "yes," as you'll see in this hit comedy. Arsenio Hall, Shari Headley, James Earl Jones also star. 116 min.

The Distinguished Gentleman(1992) VHS
Small-time con man Eddie Murphy uses his street smarts to get elected to Congress in a get-rich-quick scheme, but soon learns that it's filled with scam artists that make him look like small fry. Can Murphy change his ways and change the way government works? A hilarious, often touching farce in the Frank Capra style, co-starring Sheryl Lee Ralph, Lane Smith and Grant Shaud. 111 min.

The Adventures Of Pluto Nash(2002) VHS
Futuristic fun is in store in the year 2080, as ex-smuggler Eddie Murphy is approached by a seedy businessman to buy his happening lunar nightclub. When Murphy refuses to sell, a series of threats prompts him to join forces with android bodyguard Randy Quaid, waitress Rosario Dawson and former cop Peter Boyle to stop the crooks. With Jay Mohr, John Cleese, Joe Pantoliano and Pam Grier. 95 min.
