Storyline

Norm the polar bear is the son of the king of the Arctic. In his youth, he develops the ability to speak to humans, a trait shared by his grandfather. Because of this, he is made an outcast from the other animals, only being accepted by Socrates, a wise bird, and Elizabeth, a female polar bear whom Norm is in love with. Years later, Norm's grandfather has disappeared and human tourists are filling the Arctic. Socrates shows Norm and three Arctic lemmings a luxury condo that has been installed on the ice. Inside this condo is Vera, a representative for wealthy developer Mr. Greene. After Norm saves Vera from an avalanche, Mr. Greene tells her to find an actor to play a polar bear for their campaign. Socrates convinces Norm and the lemmings to stow away on a ship to New York City..

A film that should have always stayed on DVD
5 July 2017 | by OlicosmicSee all my reviews

This is easily one of the worst animated films I've ever seen. With so-so CGI, stupid story, weak premise, and semi off sync voice acting, it's hard to think of a lot of other animated films being any worse. It tries to be funny sometimes, but it never is, and the film makes literally no sense. The whole idea of a freaking polar bear somehow boosting home sellers ratings in the Arctic of all places is literally one of the dumbest things I've ever heard, and I thought that Cars 2 had a stupid story, but this somehow makes that look like a masterpiece, which is quite the feat. The story also has no good flow. The transitions seem lazily done and the amount of choppiness and repetitiveness will more than likely make some viewers regret not watching anything better, which a lot of other films besides this would be. I don't like bashing movies, but I must warn everyone about this poor excuse of a kids movie that should have never played in theaters, as it has no reason to exist since there are so many other movies that kids would not only enjoy more, but get much more out of than this. I honestly can't recommend this film to anyone, as its dumb story and not so great CGI and voice acting make this film is in no way good. Kids and adults are all better off watching something else, as this is a film that should have always stayed on DVD.
