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

Not very bad
9 February 2007 | by Hint523See all my reviews

Norbit is a movie about "wimpy" Eddie Murphy getting married to "fat and mean" Eddie Murphy after being orphaned and left to live with "Chinese racist" Eddie Murphy. He can't divorce his wife because she has 3 older brothers that will beat the crap out of him. He is in love with his childhood sweetheart (Newton) who wants to get married to another man (Gooding Jr). It had a lot of funny parts, and a lot of parts that were given away on the trailer (as always). I liked it because it didn't rant about how bad fat people are, which is what most of these comedies do, and it didn't have any parts that made me roll my eyes. There were a lot of REALLY funny parts at a fair and in a church, and a lot of parts that were bad, but it rounded itself out to a five, meaning not positive OR negative.

Only see it if you want to. And it's not as bad as people are saying.
