Norbit (Eddie Murphy) is a shy fellow raised by Mr Wong (Eddie Murphy again) in a combination orphanageChinese 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 humour 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

This film is a must see family comedy! It has Eddie Murphy at his best!!! This is a five star film that Eddie Murphy plays as THREE hilarious characters.
Murphy starts as a nice sweet gentle guy called Norbit. He had some ups and downs but at the end he finally got a second chance at love with his childhood crush Kate (Thandie Newton). But there is an obstacle in his way! A VERY BIG obstacle... Rasputia (Eddie Murphy. She's jealous mean and wants him all to herself. Norbit still tries to win Kate's heart though even with Rasputia in his way! This definitely is as described: Hysterically Funny! One incredible scene is Rasputia at a slide in a water park... You never know what might happen!
This film is packed with other HOLLYWOOD stars such as: Cuba Gooding Jr. , Marlon Wayans, Eddie Griffin and many more!
This is once in a lifetime humour, all in one DVD! Norbit is one heck of a film and I love it!
