Storyline

Norbit is a normal person, who after being adopted by Mr. Wong, ends up being married to the very large, Rasputia. Norbit's childhood love, Kate Thomas arrives back in town to buy the orphanage. Norbit sees this as his chance to get back together with Kate, until he discovers that she is in fact engaged to Deion Hughes. Norbit isn't going to lay this to rest, whilst he tries to survive life with Rasputia, and it looks like Deion also has something he would like to keep secret. Written by simon

Get the f*** over yourselves
19 August 2012 | by julianraadSee all my reviews

I'm going to be completely honest. Some people really need to get whatever is up their behind, out. This films intended purpose was to make you poo yourself, not admire the storyline and embrace the true meaning. Racism is an unavoidable thing with today's society and if you bitches are going to sit here and tell me that it isn't funny (at times) then in all honesty, jump off a bridge. The obesity jokes were, just like the majority of the racist jokes, hilarious. I actually had tears coming down my face at times. And Eddie Murphy is, in my gorgeous eyes, a brilliant actor. So please, STFU. I will admit, it wasn't a perfect film. Some aspects of it were poorly executed hence the 7/10. But overall, I certainly don't think it deserves the 1's, 2's and 3's other reviewers are giving it.

The moral of my review is this, DO NOT LISTEN TO WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING. This is a funny movie. If you are an over sensitive little girl then I suggest you don't watch it. If you secretly find racism and obesity funny (at times) then go right ahead and watch it, you won't regret it, unless of course you cannot control your bladder. You'd be screwed.
