Media Type: Film Clips Topic: Marginal Thinking

Click here to watch this clip.

The Nutty Professor (played by Eddie Murphy) has a problem with eating. In this inspired dream scene we see the professor growing to King Kong-like proportions and attempting to find enough food to eat. When he wakes from his nightmare he resolves to eat better and lose weight. This is a great example of how obesity gives rise to diminishing marginal utility. Perfect to show when introducing the topic of utility.
