A big fat piece of shameless crap.
Seriously... What appears to be a light-hearted everyman’s comedy dives into lowbrow trash as fast as Rasputia’s fat ass flies down a water slide. “Norbit” amazingly manages to blatantly offend a gamut of groups, including Fat and Skinny, Men and Women, Blacks, Whites, Chinese, Italians, Jews, Mexicans, even the Elderly and the Young. It’s like Eddie Murphy and his brother wrote this in one night over a case of warm Colt 45’s. The most interesting part of the movie was actually the reactions of the audience who was really only comfortable laughing at the ridiculous physical antics, like the spear-in-the-asshole gag. The one redeeming quality is Murphy’s insatiable talent as the massively obese and overbearing Rasputia. But what does that say anyway?
