Norbit Rice's (Eddie Murphy) mother abandoned him as an infant, tossing him out of a car window and onto the steps of The Golden Wonton, a hybrid Chinese restaurant and orphanage. The geeky child was taunted by the other orphans, but found solace with his best friend: Kate (Thandie Newton).
When Kate was adopted Norbit was again tormented by his peers, at least until a girl named Rasputia (also Murphy) took a liking to him. Rasputia frightened even the toughest boys in the orphanage, including Norbit who was unwillingly wed to her.
Norbit collected $159 million at box offices worldwide.
