Eleven-year-old North has had it with his parents. They are always busy with their careers and don't give North the attention he needs, so he files a lawsuit against them. The judge rules that North should either find new parents or return to his own parents within two months. Thus north starts off on an hilarious journey around the world to find the parents that really care about him. Written by

Bruce Willis' character Gabby (as the Cowboy) fires several rounds from a rifle in the desert. This wasn't just any rifle. It was the famous rifle Chuck Connors' character Lucas McCain used in The Rifleman, a Winchester 44-40 with a 20-inch barrel and the conspicuous backwards, round-D style loop, and the 8-32 set screw tapped through the trigger guard to give the rifle its rapid-fire action that made The Rifleman famous and which Willis took advantage of in this scene in North.

I was only 6 years old when I watched North - apparently this was old enough to notice its stupidity. Despite all of its manic plot points, the movie is very forgettable. In fact, I completely forgot that Bruce Willis was in this movie. But maybe that was just my unconscious mind it blocking out.
So, at only six years old I found this movie incredibly stupid. Watching the scenes in Hawaii, I was incredibly embarrassed - for the actors, for the people of Hawaii - everyone.
And it only got worse.
I enjoyed the musical number in Texas, mostly because I'm a Reba fan. And it was kind of amusing to see George and Elaine from Seinfeld as a couple, amusing at first anyways.
And what else can be said about this movie? Most of it is horrible and or unwatchable. But it's not the worst movie I've ever seen. Hell, I suppose it's better than Mortal Combat 2, or Garbage Pail Kids. ( Hardly high praise ).
So remember, if you are stuck with the choice, North is probably better than MK2, but worse than say, most anything else.
