Eddie Murphy comedy about a black child raised by a Chinese racist bully. Abandoned on the steps of a Chinese takeaway cum orphanage as a baby, Norbit (Eddie Murphy) grows up to be a rather confused man. The only father he’s known is Mr Wong (Murphy in Chinese makeup) – proprietor of above establishment and racist bully who can’t stand black people. Somewhat of a milquetoast, Norbit is unable to avoid an arranged engagement and imminent marriage to Rasputia (Murphy in a fat suit) a gigantic woman who’s also a terrible bully. He’d drop her in a minute but she has three brothers who are eternally in the wings, punching their palms in silent threat. This means that getting together with his childhood sweetheart Kate (Thandie Newton) is out of the question and, sadly, she’s looking like marrying the handsome Deion (Cuba Gooding Jr.). Murphy cranks up the giggle mill once again with fat suits, passing of wind, unexpected rudeness and ‘acceptable’ swearing.
