Empire Magazine Australasia

Like all of Murphy's recent films, there's also a sweet-if-predictable heart beating beneath the discount jokes.

If there's no limit to your love of fat jokes, this is the movie for you.

The laughs are broad (pardon the pun), obtuse, and unsubtle.

It's small consolation when you have to sit through such a miserably unfunny movie, but at least the bad ideas here are relatively original.

Most of the jokes concern obesity, which Murphy evidently believes to be ipso facto funny.

A life sucking comedy of highly dubious intent.

If you're not a die-hard Murphy fan, your enjoyment of Norbit will depend entirely on how funny you find fat suits and fart jokes. Worth missing.

Murphy has a deplorable joke concerning a lost policeman's whistle for which there is no excuse whatever - other than it's very funny.

... admirável que, com um passado já tão recheado de atrocidades cinematográficas, Eddie Murphy tenha conseguido, com Norbit, a proeza de realizar aquele que, sem dúvida, é o pior filme de sua já desastrosa carreira.

Stereotype-based comedy from Eddie Murphy in a variety of fat suits is just not enough to make a decent film.

Even if you go back decades, body fascism has rarely been so brazen, or so unfunny. Horrifying.

the humor is mean-spirited and the jokes rather puerile.

Murphy finally has nothing to prove in front of the camera, which makes his fondness for wearing extreme prosthetics to play multiple roles in a film bursting with cheap, obvious gags increasingly baffling.
