      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Coming off his Oscar-nominated performance in Dreamgirls, the talented-but-inconsistent Eddie Murphy plays three roles in Norbit, a cruel, crass, stereotype-filled comedy that's more depressing than funny.

      Peter Bradshaw Guardian Murphy has a deplorable joke concerning a lost policeman's whistle for which there is no excuse whatever - other than it's very funny. Rated: 2/5 Mar 10, 2007 Full Review Tony Horkins Empire Magazine Stereotype-based comedy from Eddie Murphy in a variety of fat suits is just not enough to make a decent film. Rated: 1/5 Mar 8, 2007 Full Review Anna Smith Time Out Even if you go back decades, body fascism has rarely been so brazen, or so unfunny. Horrifying. Mar 8, 2007 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins With the unbelievable advancements in makeup artistry and special practical effects, it's something of a wonder that the best use of it here is for a blubbery fat-suit. Rated: 4/10 Nov 27, 2020 Full Review Daniel Barnes Dare Daniel A nonstop series of sloppily constructed comedy bits peopled with racist and misogynist caricatures. Rated: 1.5/5 Mar 16, 2020 Full Review Brooke Holgerson Boston Phoenix If there's no limit to your love of fat jokes, this is the movie for you. Rated: 1/4 Jul 7, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      RayJohn R It was so hilarious why do people are hating on this movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review Dee L This movie was hilarious. And the fans spoke at the box office and dvd sales. Critics are useless. They tried to tank the movie, but it was too funny to fail. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/18/24 Full Review Evangeline V La comedia es subjetiva y en mi personal disfrute, la película cumple con los requisitos para ser divertída, con una trama simple y personajes llamativos y entretenidos, creo Eddy Morphy hizo un excelente trabajo con esta película, muchas películas de comedia hoy en dia se esfuerzan demasiado en hacer algo grasioso qué al final resulta en algo mediocramente forzado y de chistes secos eh irrelevantemente incómodos en muchos sentidos donde tiendes a sobrepensar en donde esta el humor y termina siendo un dolor de cabeza. Norbit en su singular humor, simplifica su comedia en actuaciónes sencillas y de una fluidez agradable, una comedia no para estudiarse a profundidad sino para reír encerio, que ese y reafirmo, en mi personal opinión, es el punto de una comedia, y esta comedia aún con personajes encasillados en estereotipos basados en el pasado, realmente no ofende a nadie según vi en el disfrute del público simple, no todos somos críticos pero el humor es universal y creo que eso vale más, y esta película merece 5 estrellas por esto por que aunque tonta la trama, es algo para reír. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review hutch312 This is my first review and if it was not for one of the greatest movie review podcast "Cinephobe" (available where ever you get your podcasts) I would have never wrote this review. I first saw this back in 2008 on HBO and my mind was blown… it is a genuinely funny movie. I am probably one of the few people in the world who does enjoy when Eddie plays multiple characters in a movie and in this one he spares no one. So many good characters, lines and moments. A little long but does not feel too long. I understand why the critics hate it, but also understand why over 58% of the audience loves it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Sawyer B This movie is wildly underrated master piece that bring the comedic stylings of Eddie Murphy, costume design of Molly Magennis, along with a great supporting cast all to one 1hr 42min long movie that's just fun to watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Phillip L Funny film, surprised the ratings are so low Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/24 Full Review Read all reviews
