We gave it a D

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.
