    Norbit

    http://www.hollywood.com/

    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.

    Why does Eddie have to keep doing variations of the same movie over and over again?

    I hope he did this BEFORE Dreamgirls. If it was after it wouldn't show much judgment on his part about how it would look to basically do yet another "I'm dressed in a fat suit" movie after what even he had to see could be a career-changing role.

    I'm sure Eddie will be much more selective now that he'll have Oscar nominee (or hopefully Oscar winner) in front of his name! Of course that theory kinda gets shot to hell when Cuba Gooding Jr. (Oscar winner) is in this movie too.... .....Oh well, it sounded good when I first thought of it.........

    Sigh...yes, very funny, fat women are repulsive and crazy...what could be more hilarious? And yet I'm sure it will do well, with lots of laughs from the audience.

    Putting the whole "Black fat women = LOL" thing aside, it DOES look like it will be funny.

    I, umm, am shocked this came it at number one this weekend with approximately 33 million dollars. I won't see this movie, but I am really shocked that it did so well. To me, it's basically his other movies slightly tweaked. But I guess for those of us who have no interest we are in the minority for this movie.
