Norm of the North

Bear to be different


Norm of the North
A polar bear of many words, Norm's greatest gripe is simple: there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do…he heads to New York City to stop it. With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the big apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day. The critics were thoroughly unimpressed.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Frank Scheck quote iconIt's harmless, bearable fun for the small fry.

Die Burger
Herman Lategan quote iconPrul bespoedig Klaas Vakie se taak.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconThe computer animation is mediocre to not great (especially in certain shots where it looks downright clunky and cheap), the vocal work is unremarkable, and there just isn't anything special or interesting enough to engage anyone above the four or five-year-old level.

Tomatometer quote iconA pioneering feat in the field of twerking polar bear animation but blearily retrograde in every other respect, Norm of the North should only be screened in case of parental emergency.
