This adult-orientated, computer-generated animation isn't an especially successful outing but still serves as an impressive antidote to the Disney-Pixar norm.

Norway may be wonderful for many things but feature-length animation currently isn't one of them.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Deeply unhinged, deeply awful.
Free Jimmy is a sledgehammer Norwegian animation that metes out all manner of cruelty to dumb animals, not least the ones in the audience.
They say an elephant never forgets. But even the most anally-retentive pachyderm would be desperate to banish this misfiring mess to the darkest reaches of memory.
You would expect at least a spark of wit. But no, there's nothing.
The brief relationship that the escaped elephant forms with a resourceful moose is oddly touching, but the fatuities surrounding it ensure that any deeper involvement is unlikely.
But the characters don't add to the conception. Nor does the basic animation.
| Original Score: 2/5
Pic could be too dark, dirty and insufficiently funny to achieve more than cult success.
