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

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.

Stealing from Date Movie: now that is pathetic.

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.

It's offensively bad.
