My opinion right after watching film

My opinion right after watching the film is that it is a piece of shit. I have been trying to hold back with the profanity, but I cannot. What the hell did I just watch? This is the stupidest shit I have ever seen. This is an abomination and an insult to animation.

Production

There is no information on the production on this page. I went on the Wikipedia page, and it is pretty much empty. There was no fucks given to complete the page of that trashy film. Oh my goodness. This film does not even deserve a proper review.

Story

The main story starts with a polar bear named Norm (Rob Schneider), who is struggling with hunting, but ends up interacting with tourists, who expects him to eat the seal he has in his hand. Apparently when he was 13, a little girl was running towards him, and he learned that he had the capability to understand, and talk to humans. It is stupid that he is somehow the only bear who understands humans for no reason, but I know that this story will get even stupider.

After going to see a fancy house in the arctic, and exploring it, he decides to leave the North Pole to go to civilization, so he will be able to use his skills to save the Arctic. Let's see how this goes down.

A woman named Vera Brightey (Heather Graham) is a single mother, who is putting all of her time in work, so she an provide for her daughter Olympia (Maya Kay), who does not like the idea of what her mother is working for. Vera follows and finds Norm, which she uses to film a commercial for her real estate company. The video gets sent to CEO Mr. Greene (Ken Jeong), and he loves it, since he needs the permit permission from the Polar Council (which is stupid, the concept of a Polar Council), before he can build homes in the arctic (which he is doing either way).

Norm goes to the human world, where he is represented as a mascot. After a bunch of pee jokes, and cheesy dancing, he gets the job by Mr. Greene.

It took him 5 minutes to realize that he is a REAL polar bear, and lashes out at his employees/hit men for no ridding of him, and Vera STILL doesn't realize it is a real polar bear. ANYONE with a brain knows the difference between a mascot and an animal. I cannot believe they are using this crap to feed an environmental message.

Greene attempts to shoot Norm, but he misses, and this is turned into a news broadcast of how Norm is a hero and an icon, which helps their business. Norm is trying to find out the full details of Green’s project, but there is surveillance everywhere in the building. He ends up meeting Vera’s daughter Olympia, who is the only one who has sense. She knows he is a bear, and wants to help him save the Arctic, while he helps her save her home, which means that she wants her mother home. After he is forced to do interviews, the film uses this as a crappy excuse to add in pop culture songs and dances, as he gets more frustrated with the company.

He recorded a slogan, which was altered in a way that says that he supports homes in the arctic. Olympia tells her mothers about her studies, which involves the harm her project is doing to the Arctic, though her mother counters it by saying that this will bring awareness to the Arctic. Greene calls Vera to tell her that the council ended up approving somehow, and as they move to the Arctic, he orders for Norm to be killed. Of course there is a chase to the Arctic, a battle happens, and he saves the Arctic. Greene is defeated and removed of everything he earned, the mother and daughter finally spend quality time together, and Norman is deemed the King of his land, before gaining a family.

I have legit never seen a film has traumatically scarring as this film, and I have been subjected to a lot of horrid films. The story is stupid, corny, and cringeworthy, the characters, music, and animation are as well. I have never had my integrity and intelligence questioned so much from a film. Bad start to the year.

Characters

The characters….. can I even call them that? There is nothing to really analyze, but I will be as basic as they are when it comes to looking at them.

Basic protagonist, but also a pop culture tool.

Typical, annoying corporate villain.

Extremely and unintentionally stupid and lacking common sense.

Animation

The animation is not the worst, but that does not mean that it is pleasing to look at. It is really the horrible textures that makes the film hard to look at from an animation standpoint.

Music

When they are not playing cheesy pop music, there was nothing memorable regarding the music.

Reception at Release

When the film was released on January 15th of this year, it flopped, with a $25.4 million international gross. It was also ripped to shreds critically for the overall trash that this film is.

Final Score

Story: 3/10

Characters: 3/10

Animation: 4/10

Music: 4.5/10

= 14.5/40 =36%

  1. I’ve heard horror stories about Norm of the North, but I’ve never seen it and every once in a blue moon I’ve found myself wondering was that movie really *that* horrible? There’s no doubt in my mind now that the answer is yes, so Foodfight and Tentacolino have some new company.

    1. I refuse to watch Foodfight, but I have heard that it is the worst animated film. Don’t bother watching this trash, and it is rare when people who usually are calm and collected in their thoughts (other reviewers), amd they call it colossal trash.

  2. I’m especially insulted by the racist design and characteristic of the villain. He’s clearly Chinese, because “obviously” he has a Manchurian hairstyle that was gone a century ago, his short quality, his room that is filled with stereotypical Chinese “things”, and they have the audacity to have a Korean voice him. It’s a complete insult.

    1. Oh shit. I didn’t even realize that? but I notice it more now that you said it. What in the hell were they thinking? Racial stereotyping is so unneeded
