Norbit (2007) (C)
Jane Horwitz, The Washington Post.
It's Eddie Murphy "as you love to see him! (Scott Patrick, Hollywood One on One) in this gut-bustingly funny movie that displays his comedic genius in multiple roles! Murphy stars as mild-mannnered Norbit, who gets a second chance at love with his childhood sweetheart, Kate (Thandie Newton, The Pursuit of Happyness). But there's one huge obstacle: jealous, mean-tempered Rasputia (Murphy), who wants Norbit all to her sizeable self. Can Norbit win the heart of Kate... before Rasputia puts the hurt on him? With an all-star cast including Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Marlon Wayans (White Chicks) and Eddie Griffin (Date Movie), Norbit "will make you laugh 'til you cheer!" (David Foucher, Edge Boston) -- (C) Paramount Pictures, 2007, USA.
