The great thing about Eddie Murphy is that he knows where his talents are and he’s willing to fail in order to give a great performance. Norbit was a fun story with characters worth watching and there are plenty of laughs.
Mega-hottie Thandie Newton plays Norbit’s childhood girlfriend. To my knowledge, no one from my school developed like her.
Cuba Gooding Jr. also plays a small part in this movie. It’s fun to see him because his timing is fantastic. He’s a great comedy actor and really deserves more work.
Again, Eddie Murphy’s willingness to push himself and the characters he plays has produced turkeys like Pluto Nash, but it also has given us lots of great entertainment as well. Norbit is fun. It’s funny and it’s worth seeing.
I think this will end up in my DVD library.
