The secret behind the ripoff Norm of the North should have stayed buried in the Arctic.
Review by Matt Cummings
NOTE: This review contains spoilers.In Director Trevor Wall's Norm of the North, an Arctic polar bear (voiced by Rob Schneider) and his fellow animals fight to retain control of their frozen wilderness, even as the evil developer Mr. Greene (Ken Jeong) attempts to do otherwise. Uncomfortable in his own massive frame, Norm is not a hunter, content to sing and dance as he learns why his grandfather (Colm Meany) suddenly disappeared years ago. When Norm arrives in New York on a massive cargo ship, he joins forces with Greene's unwilling assistant Vera (Heather Graham) and her daughter, who see Greene as a means to end to getting the girl into an exclusive school. Armed with his roar and secret ability to speak to humans, Norm seeks to upend Greene with his growing popularity and his indestructible but mute lemmings. Facebook.
