Norbit | Chicago Reader


Eddie Murphy returns to the multiple roles and prosthetic blubber of his Nutty Professor movies, playing a trio of grotesques: Norbit, a cringing nebbish with a bad Afro and a speech impediment; his battle-ax wife, a raging sea of cellulite; and his aging foster father, one of those crude and insulting Asians who've become such a reliable comic type. This dismal comedy joins a growing pile of Murphy disasters (The Haunted Mansion, Daddy Day Care, I Spy, Showtime, The Adventures of Pluto Nash). Brian Robbins (The Shaggy Dog) directed; Thandie Newton provides the visual relief. PG-13, 102 min.
