Dr. Sherman Klump is a kind, brilliant "calorically challenged" genetics professor. When beautiful Carla Purty joins the university faculty, Sherman grows desperate to whittle his 400-pound frame down to size and win her heart. So, with one swig of his experimental fat-reducing serum, Sherman becomes "Buddy Love," a fast-talking, pumped-up, plumped- down Don Juan. But both the potion and Buddy prove to be uncontrollable, and Sherman discovers he has created a monster!
