Picture from Norbit
Overall D

No one would really like to live with him or her self, or so the movie Norbit appears to prove. Staring as both a husband and overbearing wife, Eddie Murphy tries to wiggle out of the marriage once he meets dreamy Kate (Thandie Newton) and discovers his wife in bed with another man. Likewise, the filmmakers may also have a difficult time wiggling out of the potential criticism for the many mean-spirited ethnic and religious portrayals in this film.
