Norm of the North is a 2016 animated movie that follows the adventures of Norm, a polar bear who lives in the Arctic Circle. The movie is directed by Trevor Wall and features the voice talents of Rob Schneider, Heather Graham, and Ken Jeong. The film takes a comedic look at the effects of climate change on the natural world as Norm sets out on a journey to save his home and family from an unscrupulous developer.

Norm is a lovable polar bear who can talk to humans, and his life is pretty simple. He spends his days fishing and enjoying the serene beauty of the icy Arctic landscape. However, Norm’s world is turned upside down when a group of tourists arrive at his home and mistakenly think he’s the star attraction. Suddenly, Norm is thrust into the world of human commerce and entertainment, where he’s expected to perform tricks and act like a trained animal.

Things go from bad to worse when Norm discovers that a developer named Mr. Greene has plans to build luxury condos in the Arctic, which will displace all the local wildlife, including Norm’s family. Along with his lemming friends, Norm sets out to New York City to take on Mr. Greene and save his home.

In the big city, Norm and his friends meet Vera, a PR executive who recognizes Norm’s marketing potential and helps him to become an internet sensation. As Norm’s star rises, Mr. Greene becomes increasingly desperate to stop him from ruining his plans. Along the way, Norm makes new friends, learns some important life lessons, and even finds a love interest in the form of a female polar bear named Olympia.

The movie features some great animation, especially in its depictions of the Arctic and the bustling urban environment of New York City. The characters are all visually interesting, and the voice acting is excellent. Rob Schneider does a fantastic job bringing Norm to life, and his sense of humor is perfectly suited to the character.

While the movie is primarily a family comedy, it also deals with some important issues, such as climate change, corporate greed, and the impact of humans on the natural world. These themes are woven into the story in a way that’s accessible for children, but still meaningful for adults.

Overall, Norm of the North is an enjoyable animated movie that’s well worth watching, especially for families looking for a fun and lighthearted adventure. The story is engaging, the characters are lovable, and the animation is superb. While it may not be a groundbreaking film, it’s definitely an entertaining one, and one that’s sure to leave viewers feeling good.
