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 <B.Martz@Genie.com>

One of the BEST movies I have EVER seen!
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give this movie infinite thumbs up. A Gnome Named Gnorm will capture your heart with and awesome story line. Gnorm does his best to foil the bad guys plot to get away with murder. He doesn't know what to think of this new world he has stumbled upon, but he has an eye on the one human friend and protector, Samantha. This is the best movie for children and as well as family. There isn't anything that I don't like about this movie. I would recommend it to everyone! It reminds me of Leprechaun only without the profanity. It is a fun and interesting way to see a fictitious creature in a world new to his own race. It shows a relationship between two races and real life that anyone can relate too.
