Although it may not be well received by critics
Ihave always had a great love of the whimzy of this movie. As a child Icould appreciate the comedy as well as feel empathy for North .It may not be suited for critics but it is for me as well as my chhildren.

NORTH (1994) Is Unfunny And Disappointing And Sometimes Even Kind Of Boring...
March 28, 2018
I hated this movie as much as roger ebert hated it!

Is it really the worst movie I have ever seen? No. I have seen much worse. I wasn't one to get much into Rob Reiner's film work, but I understand that he may have made a lot of good movies that he probably balanced it out with a bad movie. But, it's fun. Not in the good way. It's so bad it's good, and we get to poke fun at it.

North hits home on a lot of kid's fantasies. To be treasured not ignored. Such a nostalgic movie that shows how entertaining movies were 20 years ago. Love it!

This Film Did Get A ''Two Thumbs Down'' On Siskel & Ebert When They Reviewed It On Their Show, This Was Film Critic Jay Sherman's Second Worst Film Of 1994 Behind Color Of Night On His Worst Of 1994 List.

A witless exercise in adult-bashing.

North is one of the most sinfully abysmal films I have ever been given the chore to sit through. The humor was nonexistent, the cultural stereotypes were extraordinarily derogatory and cheap, and is just overall a very fugly film. I give this filth 0/5 stars.

A very painful movie to get through

Boring, forgettable movie with a mild message.
October 26, 2016
Offensive, unfunny, and has the lowest ending possible for a movie to have

Disgusting. Just plain disgusting. It's not one of the worst movies Roger Ebert ever saw without a reason! 0/5

This is how Roger Ebert reviewed the movie 'North':
"I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it.
Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it.
I hold it as an item of faith that Rob Reiner is a gifted filmmaker; among
his credits are "This Is Spinal Tap," "The Sure Thing," "The Princess Bride," "Stand By Me," "When Harry Met Sally...," and "Misery." I list those titles as an incantation against this one.
"North" is a bad film - one of the worst movies ever made. But it is not by a bad filmmaker, and must represent some sort of lapse from which Reiner will recover - possibly sooner than I will."
I might remind you that this is from the writer of 'Beyond the Valley of
the Dolls', one of the worst movies of all time.
Many people disliked the movie, it's true, but I insist they simply
misunderstood it. The key to understanding it is hinted at in the opening
credits when we have a tour of the toys in North's room. All of the toys are
silly references to the places and people North will visit during his
adventure. It's only at the end that it is revealed that it was all a dream.
This is crucial information. It tells us that all the outrageous caricatures in
the movie were the product of the imagination of a naive kid. The film isn't
guilty of stereotyping- North is. All kids have a simplistic grasp of the world
and how it really works.
But the best part of the film is the skillful craftsmanship and first rate
production values. It looks great and all of the acting is outstanding. It
should also be seen for what it is, a children's movie.
Also of note: it's the movie debut of Scarlett Johansson at age nine; and
Bruce Willis and Elijah Wood later appeared together in 'Sin City'.

It is very rare that a film comes along that has one of the best casts ever assembled, and yet is so damned terrible. Rob Reiner's 'North' is the kind of film that just makes you shake your head and wonder where it all went wrong. Truly baffling.

Not the worst but by no means the best

Boy divorces parents and sets off on a journey to find suitable ones. Don't waste your time on this kiddie road pic stuffed with unnecessary cameos.
June 13, 2016
A disappointing, humiliating and baffling misstep by Rob Reiner. Just when and where did the whole movie go wrong? The concept was unique for a children's film like this for its time, and some noted star power like the then-upcoming Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings trilogy), Bruce Willis (Die Hard series), Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers) and even the Seinfeld duo of Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus certainly did seem like it could help make this movie work, and yet - with every chance that this movie had been given - it was executed in the worst way possible.

What a piece of trash.
