Gnorm is just an average Gnome. But he wants to impress the lady Gnomes by doing something heroic. So he steals the Gnome's magic stones to expose them to sunlight to recharge them. When he gets to the surface, (Gnome's live deep underground) he witnesses a murder, and the killer ends up with his stones. Detective Casey, who was working a sting operation with the murdered man, (another detective) is blamed for botching the sting, and causing the death. Wanting to catch the killer to clear his name, he teams up with Gnorm, who he accidentally discovers. He is going to need Samantha's help, but she thinks he is a nut. You see, no one else knows about Gnorm. Written by Brian W Martz <>

Gnothing Much to Write Gnome About
6 July 1999 | by (Birchington, England) – See all my reviews

This movie did not really engage either my heart or my head. I would say that it is more appropriate for children, except some of the humour is a little too adult for a young audience. Nevertheless, a wonderful performance from Mark Harelik as the odious Kaminsky kept me watching to the end.
