The laughs are broad (pardon the pun), obtuse, and unsubtle. Full Review

Most of the jokes concern obesity, which Murphy evidently believes to be ipso facto funny. Full Review

Rating: 1/6 -- When Martin Lawrence and Tyler Perry play gals with sky-high BMI, at least their characters offer -- and are shown -- a certain amount of love and respect. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- If there's no limit to your love of fat jokes, this is the movie for you. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- Murphy finally has nothing to prove in front of the camera, which makes his fondness for wearing extreme prosthetics to play multiple roles in a film bursting with cheap, obvious gags increasingly baffling. Full Review

Rating: 56/100 -- It's small consolation when you have to sit through such a miserably unfunny movie, but at least the bad ideas here are relatively original.

Product Description:

Norbit (Eddie Murphy, channeling Buckwheat and Woody Allen) is a shy, nebbishy fellow, raised by Mr. Wong (Eddie Murphy again) in a combination orphanage/Chinese restaurant in Boiling Springs, Tennessee. As a child, Norbit comes to love Kate, a fellow orphan, but the soulmates are separated when Kate is adopted. Enter Rasputia, an aggressive, plus-sized 10-year-old who protects him from bullies and demands his romantic loyalty, much like her thuggish older brothers demand "protection" money from all the merchants in Boiling Springs. Rasputia and Norbit eventually marry--and the peevish adult Rasputia is played to great comic effect by Eddie Murphy in a fat suit. Although Rasputia is controlling, unfaithful, hideous-looking, and always madder than a hornet, she and Norbit make a life together, albeit one based on inertia, fear, and complacency.

The bubble bursts when the now-grown Kate (Thandie Newton) returns to Boiling Springs to buy Mr. Wong's orphanage. Norbit's love is rekindled, and he must find a way to end his loveless marriage, save Kate from marrying a crooked philanderer (Cuba Gooding Jr., in a rare villainous turn), and prevent Rasputia's brothers from carrying through with a big con job that would destroy the orphanage and Kate's life. Eddie Murphy, not surprisingly, carries the show, with broad, juvenile humor, fat jokes, and pratfalls, and while he never aims very high, he manages to inject some poignancy into Norbit's and Wong's characters, even as he plays Rasputia strictly for laughs. It's not Shakespeare--it's not even BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE--but the laughs are as big as Rasputia's muumuu.
