    • Excerpt: This utterly generic computer animation may be OK for the kids, but adults will find little entertainment in this rehash of old ideas from better movies.
  • Mark Dujsik @
    • Excerpt: A bland, nearly incompetent animated movie that assumes kids can only be entertained by the sights of a dancing polar bear, of “cute and marketable” lemmings (the movie’s own description) urinating in an aquarium, and of a bird defecating on people.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Norm of the North’ is the overly simplistic tale of a talking polar bear that travels to New York City to save the North Pole.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Stale and trivial, it’s a charmless, blandly boring 93-minute interlude.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Avoid this nauseating world where nothing makes sense, especially the plot and characters. If Norm is an attempt to save the Arctic from human development, the Earth’s far north is in trouble.

    • Excerpt: If you spent 86 minutes crawling through a snowbank while clad only in a bathing suit, it would probably be a more rewarding experience than sitting through Norm of the North.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Unbearable…so ill-conceived that it will insult the intelligence of a kindergartener.
