YMMV / Norbit

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Eddie Griffin and Katt Williams steal the whole movie as pimps Pope Sweet Jesus and Lord Have Mercy, and are generally regarded as its one entertaining factor.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The scene where Norbit gets home from his date with Kate and a very angry Rasputia is sitting on a couch in the dark, waiting for him. Meanwhile, Norbit is nervously calling for her and both he and the audience knows This Is Gonna Suck, big time. Her later threat of violence against Kate by pouring acid on a potato doll of Kate is also pretty unnerving.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The film was universally panned, but still has its fans for some of its' low-brow humor and occasionally witty humor.
  • What an Idiot!: Really, Norbit? All right, you were protecting Kate from Rasputia's wrath. We get that part. But you couldn't say, "You need to get out of here before Rasputia kills you!" Instead, you had to go with, "I don't care about the orphanage or you, and Rasputia's the only woman I'll ever need!". Norbit could have just said something else, like "I can't talk right now at the moment."
  • The Woobie: Norbit. He is unceremoniously dropped off at an orphanage by his birth parents as a baby, he is forced to date and marry Rasputia and become a part of her criminal family, and is basically treated like a slave from then on. His happy ending was ENTIRELY earned.
