It is a childish world seen through the ponderous eyes of adulthood. All the children in it, including Elijah Wood as North, seem over-directed, reacting with programmed cuteness. Their lines have a hack's glibness rather than a child's innocence.

I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it.

The premise of North sounds flat, the previews look insipid, and, while the movie doesn't turn out nearly as bad as either would lead you to believe, North is still a lackluster production.

Woeful and meandering...Reiner's direction is uncharacteristically choppy and uneventful

Reiner is undecided just how fantastically he should treat this ludicrous plotline. Added to which there's a dire musical number, a silly thriller subplot, and much maudlin didacticism from narrator Willis in various guardian angel (dis)guises. Misery.

Not up to Rob Reiner's usually high standard.

It's strange and oddly distasteful, at its best managing to be bad in some original and unexpected ways.

It's a prime example of what can happen when hip, slightly cynical establishment filmmakers try to make a deeply sentimental movie.

It's rather surprising to note that - for its first half, at least - North is actually quite engaging and entertaining...

Elijah Wood is very lucky that a certain hobbit trilogy came along to clear his record of this turd.

"North"? This movie sinks due south, deep into ground oblivion.

The intrinsic failure of Alan Zweibel and Andrew Scheinman's script is that it tips its hand from the start.

North seldom raises more than a chuckle.

This movie is aimed at neither kids nor adults; it simply isn't aimed.
