Norbit Albert Rice (Eddie Murphy) and Kate Thomas (Thandie Newton) were the best of friends as children in an orphanage owned by their father figure, Mr. Wong (Eddie Murphy), but were separated when Kate was adopted. While being bullied by twins in the orphanage, Norbit is saved by Rasputia Latimore (Eddie Murphy), a fat, self-centered, overbearing, vain girl who makes Norbit her boyfriend and protects him from other kids. As they both grow up, Rasputia dominates every aspect of Norbit's life. They eventually marry - in part due to pressure from Rasputia's three coarse, muscular brothers, Black Jack (Terry Crews), Earl (Clifton Powell) and Blue (Lester "Rasta" Speight), who the whole town live in fear of. Throughout their life together, Rasputia mistreats, insults and dominates Norbit to ensure that she keeps him to herself, eventually starting to cheat with her tap dance instructor.
Norbit is performing a puppet show for the children at the orphanage, but then sees Kate for the first time in years, and his affection for her returns. He is disappointed to find out that she is engaged to Deion Hughes (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), a sneaky, slick-talking businessman. Eventually, with help from Norbit's two ex-pimp friends Pope Sweet Jesus (Eddie Griffin) and Lord Have Mercy (Katt Williams) and the other townspeople, Kate falls in love with Norbit. Rasputia finds out about this, and threatens violence against Kate should Norbit speak to her again.
Norbit discovers that the Lattimore brothers have orchestrated a plot to purchase Kate and Norbit's former orphanage to open up a strip club: since Deion is to be married to Kate, he will have possession of the property, and he gets a share of the money once the strip club opens. When Kate finds out about the deal, Deion convinces her that Norbit only used her to help the Lattimores. When she confronts him after he is locked in the basement by a vengeful Rasputia, Norbit lies to Kate to save her from Rasputia. In a fit of rage, Kate leaves Norbit to marry Deion. Norbit escapes from the basement, and races to the church where Deion and Kate are to be married. Norbit reveals that Deion has gotten rich off of divorce settlements, and only marries women for their money; he proves this by presenting Deion's ex-wives and children in person. Deion flees, and the Latimores attack Norbit.
Just as the brothers prepare to kill Norbit, they are stopped by the townspeople, who have taken up arms to defend Norbit and get their revenge on the Lattimores. In the ensuing battle, Rasputia fights her way through the crowd, but just when Rasputia is about to kill Norbit, she is harpooned in the rear by Mr. Wong. Rasputia, the brothers, and Deion are all chased out of town by the mob. Kate and Norbit buy the orphanage and get married under the tree where they once played as children. Rasputia and her brothers move to Mexico and open up the El Nipplopolis, where Rasputia becomes their most popular and lucrative stripper.
