Norbit

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Eddie Murphy, Thandie Newton, Cuba Gooding Jr., Eddie Griffin; Director: Brian Robbins; Author: David Ronn, Jay Scherick; Release Date Wide: 02/09/2007; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 102; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Paramount Pictures

As Norbit, who’s like a nerd out of 1974’s worst urban sitcom, Eddie Murphy speaks in a breathy lisp. Murphy also plays Rasputia, a scowling terror, her limbs dripping with fat. The spectacle of spilling, jiggling flesh is so convincing that it makes a mockery, an irrelevance, of Murphy’s gifts.
