Storyline

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>

Lost in Weird
11 January 2013 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

I was cable-surfing the other night, and stumbled across this movie. The gnome was on the screen talking, and I thought for sure it was DJ Qualls, who has been a guest on Supernatural, and other shows. Well, Gnorm sounds and looks just like DJ Qualls, but this movie was made long before DJ Qualls was active as an actor.

Claudia Christian is in the film, and I had never seen her in any movie where she just looks like a total mandroid. Her boyfriend, the lead actor, has no chemistry going with her, and the scenes when the two of them are together are visibly uncomfortable and drag.

The only bright light in this movie is Jerry Orbach. What was a great actor like him doing in this dud? I feel like Jerry Orbach was made for the Law and Order TV series, and it was the vehicle that highlighted everything that was great about him as an actor. Unfortunately, in this film, he is cast as the bad guy trying to kill the gnome. Orbach tries his best to play Barney Fife, but it is a bit painful to watch "Lenny Briscoe" running around shooting at a muppet.

Overall, this is a bizarre film. It is like a weird time-capsule. There is nothing very entertaining about it, but if you like to eat ice cream with cheddar cheese, then this might be fun for you.
