Rated NR

If you’re an Eddie Murphy fan, and you have a big smile on your face because he’s experiencing some sort of career resurgence with Dreamgirls, prepare to have that smile smacked right off your face. Norbit chases one of Eddie’s career high points (I still say Trading Places was his career best) with possibly his very worst film. It is full-on awful. I won’t blame Murphy for this. The man is super talented. Somebody got the idea to return him to comedic form with another multicharacter movie like Coming to America and The Nutty Professor, and it just went haywire. Seeing Murphy under pounds of Rick Baker makeup is always instantly amusing, but then he has to open his mouth and share the screen with others, so you’d better give him a script worth reading.
