Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Eddie Murphy stars and stars in this very broad and raucous comedy that finds the Oscar-nominated Dreamgirls actor revisiting the multiple-character shtick that worked so well for him in Coming to America and The Nutty Professor. The latter's makeup-effects artist, Rick Baker, once again transforms Murphy into a variety of grotesques and caricatures, including the hugely fat, monstrous Rasputia, the Asian Mr. Wong, and the timorous Norbit, a nervous orphan raised by Wong and married to Rasputia. The latter, a member of a construction family with a plan to turn Wong's orphanage into a strip club, is a relentlessly narcissistic shrew who puts the screws on Norbit at every turn, especially when he rediscovers his love for an old friend, Kate (Thandie Newton). Kate's wish to buy and maintain the orphanage herself is secretly compromised by her fiancé (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who is in cahoots with Rasputia's family and using Norbit to further their agenda.

Extraordinarily silly, frequently crude and mean-spirited to an extreme, Norbit is far more sour than The Nutty Professor. But there are moments of inspiration, especially a wedding interrupted by wannabe pimps who launch a profane gospel groove, and a dog that talks to Norbit while he is semi-conscious. For the most part, though, Norbit impresses as a technical marvel utilizing careful shot design and skillful editing. Murphy participates in several remarkable, three-character scenes in which he happens to be all three characters, and those moments move so briskly it's easy to forget one is looking at a comic stunt. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Norbit (Eddie Murphy) has never had it easy. As a baby, he was abandoned on the steps of a Chinese restaurant/orphanage and raised by Mr. Wong (Eddie Murphy). Things get worse when he’s forced into marriage by the mean, junk food-chugging queen, Rasputia (Eddie Murphy). Just when Norbit’s hanging by his last thread, his childhood sweetheart, Kate (Thandie Newton), moves back to town. In the comedy Norbit, he’ll show them all that nice guys sometimes finish first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny!!! October 13, 2008
Format:DVD
I thought this was a really good funny movie! Eddie Murphy is back doing what he does best! He plays Norbit Rice, and his mistreating obese wife, Rasputia. In the middle of the movie, Norbit's childhood girlfriend, Kate comes back to town, hoping to buy the orphanage that she and Norbit grew up in. Kate's fiance and Rasputia's brothers try to stop Kate so they can open a strip club. Later, Norbit finally gets courage with the help of some friendly pimps, and Mr. Wong to tell Kate the truth and win her love. If you love comedies, and Eddie Murphy, you'll love NORBIT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Funny!!!! June 6, 2007
Format:DVD
People who compare this role to the role Eddie played in Dreamgirls are silly, these are 2 totally different movies. Norbit is crude humor at it's best, if you are easily offended or looking for a serious drama, don't purchase or rent this movie and the nutty professor, it is not! Eddie plays multiple roles excellently as we know, the film also stars Cuba Goodin Jr.,Thandie Newton and a hilarious cameo from Marlon Wayans, not much substance as far as a plot is concerned , not a love story -just a raunchy, crude performance by Eddie Murphy but hilarious nonetheless and funny is actually and understatement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest movie I have seen in a while January 29, 2008
Format:HD DVD
Eddie Murphy is a comic actor genius! How many actors can play three different characters and make each character perform perfect in their respective roles??? This movie was a riot. I watched it three times in the same day. I am not an Eddie Murphy fan but this movie proves that he belongs among the greatest comedians in Hollywood's history.

3.0 out of 5 stars BETTER THAN I EXPECTED ! ,BUT NOT GREAT! January 15, 2008
Format:DVD
I have always liked Eddie Murphy even though he has had his share of bad movies. 'Norbit' is not his best movie nor is it his worst movie. I found myself liking this movie a little more as it went along. It's not great by any stretch but, it's not nearly as bad as I had heard. I guess my expectations were lowered and it allowed me to enjoy this for what it is. A dumb romantic comedy with some good performances. Once again Eddie plays multiple characters and the make-up by Rick Baker in incredible. I wouldn't buy it unless it was in a bargin bin, but if it's on the tube........?

5.0 out of 5 stars A dizzying kaleidoscope of crap March 14, 2007
I rate this Eddie Murphy comedy five stars, but not because it is a good movie. In fact, it's so bad I'm not even sure it IS a movie.. It's more of a showcase for Eddie Murphy to play different roles and personalities... He really is astonishing in this.

And let me tell you, Rasputia is not a work of fiction. I know many people like her, black and white, male and female. They think the world revolves around them, and use power to control and manipulate the people in their lives (who would definitely not stay around otherwise). At least that part of the story rang true.

The rest of it was a mess of cliches. The plot was none too original. The fat black woman jokes are getting tired. The comedy was actually not as funny as it was disturbing and depressing, but in that there is kind of a success..because this movie is just so god-awful terrible that it lingers in your mind far longer than it has any right to. The movie may be fluff, but it sure has a way of defining the kind of crap movies this generation prefers. It could be used as an example in film history classes years from today as the ultimate lowest point the film industry ever sunk to, along with SNAKES ON A PLANE and THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE. Really, though, at least this movie is able to laugh at itself, and I can't help but wonder if this is Eddie Murphy's big hate letter to Hollywood...giving us one of the worst movies of all time, and laughing all the way to the bank!

It's entertaining to a degree but not near as entertaining as Eddie Murphy in "Harlem Nights". The difference is the style of humor. The latter is more realistic. Read more

Is this a Combo Disc?
The price is now $17.99; however, the Blu-Ray disc is listed as 1:33 to 1 full screen ratio. For some reason I really like this movie but do not want to buy a full screen Blu-Ray movie.
