I really don't have anything good to say about it. I guess congrats for getting a movie made.

It's a lazy, cheap, nonsensical ploy to separate you from your money.
August 2, 2016
With its strangely adult plot about global warming and real estate development and its mediocre animation style, Norm of the North is one to skip.

Norm of the North is nothing but wasted potential.
March 28, 2016
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.

...Norm of the North needs to be put back in the bottom of the Walmart bargain bin where it belongs.

January 15, 2016
Takes familiar elements from numerous other, better made, animated features and tries to Frankenstein them together, but ultimately forgets the most important element of all: charm.

You might expect a clichéd fish-out-of-water comedy. But, no. Norm of the North is so lazy, sloppy and confusing, it can't even pull off clichés.

The animation already looks dated, and it feels as lazy as the bland narrative, which finds Norm traveling to New York City to try stop construction on his home.

The eco friendly message gets lots in bad taste jokes and gags. [Full review in Spanish]

In an age where even animated flicks are designed for consumption for the junior and senior of our species, this film somehow manages to take the intelligence of children for granted.

Norm of the North may keep undiscriminating children pacified for 86 minutes, but there's nothing here for anyone with an IQ higher than freezing temperatures.

Even the trait that should endear the audience to Norm, his infamous " Arctic Shake," in which the bear goes into uncontrollable fits of dancing and twerking, becomes unbearable to watch.

Not since Bratz has this writer seen a screenplay so carelessly written, a sort of "Dear John" letter to Hollywood that goes out of its way to paint actors and directors as megalomaniacal idiots.

It's very difficult to find a positive to take from the Norm of the North experience, and it's unlikely anyone will decipher its muddled eco-friendly message from all the chaos.

For the tots, the film is blandly inoffensive enough to offer some Saturday afternoon entertainment, but this isn't one of those crossover hits that parents can enjoy just as much as their kids.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
March 23, 2016
In spite of the positive message on the preservation of the wild, the film falls short in the supposedly comedically inclined moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Norm of the North doesn't even make the grade in terms of animation, which is shoddy throughout.

No. No. Just no. No child should be exposed to this.
