Norbit (2007)

I know that this is a fictional silly story but the lollipop rings (for a lack of a better name) was not on the market until just recently and not when that film could have possibly been made.
A meek and lovable milquetoast married to an overbearing, overweight tyrant finds his life turned upside down when he meets the woman of his dreams in this romantic comedy starring Eddie Murphy, Thandie Newton, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Eddie Griffin. His entire life, Norbit (Murphy) has been picked on and put down, and after being bullied into marrying the most obnoxious woman in town (also Murphy) it appears as if that's the way things will remain until the day he dies. Upon meeting the one woman who seems to accept him for who he is, Norbit is instilled with a newfound sense of hope for the future. In order to find true happiness, however, Norbit will first have to gather the courage to stand up to his monstrous spouse once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Eddie Murphy's shtick is getting pretty old even with the Flashdance water scene, but I still wanted to watch this one. And so not much thrill here...move along.

Quite a few extra features on this DVD but still nothing of real value to the movie.
