A family film that mixes its ecological, environmental message with a familiar self-empowerment lesson is hardly original, yet Norm has oodles of charm, a razor-sharp wit and pacing that should keep even preschoolers attentive.
Has little to recommend it. Padded with dance numbers - two in the first fifteen minutes alone - and montages, the best that can be said is that bad movies like this are important to remind us that the Pixar movies aren't flukes.
Norm of the North is a rancid excursion into well-intentioned animated chaos that proves to be an excruciating endurance test no one of sound mind or body should ever attempt to watch, and that includes their children.
All in all, Norm of the North is one big ball of mess. Uninvolving, unfunny and visually inferior to its peers, this is a straight-to-DVD production at best. How it managed to sneak its way onto the big-screen, we will never know.
