Norbit is a 2007 American comedy directed by Brian Robbins and produced by Davis Entertainment and Tollin/Robbins Productions starring Eddie Murphy and Thandie Newton. It was released by DreamWorks and distributed by Paramount Pictures on February 9, 2007.
Norbit has never had it easy. As a baby, he was abandoned on the steps of a Chinese restaurant/orphanage and raised by Mr. Wong. Things get worse when he's forced into marriage by the mean, junk food-chugging queen, Rasputia. Just when Norbit's hanging by his last thread, his childhood sweetheart, Kate, moves back to town. In the comedy "Norbit," he'll find that nice guys sometimes finish first.
