Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #82: Norm Of The North

Hey, everyone! Welcome to my 82nd edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series. Apologies for the lateness of this latest edition of the column once again. As you already know back in February here on, I posted up poll with three bad movies and I said that whichever one out of those three films had the highest votes, I would watch and live-tweet for this column. Well, the votes are in and you all have spoken. For this 82nd installment of Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon, you guys wanted me to watch and live-tweet… NORM OF THE NORTH! Is this really one of the worst animated films of all time? Does everyone in this film, even Rob Schneider, deserve better than this? Read on and find out! Enjoy!

I know I’ve said this many times before, but I’m going to say it again: is it too late for me to *not* watch this film? #NormOfTheNorth

I’m not even a few minutes and Rob Schneider as the voice of “Norm” is already annoying the shit out of me. #NormOfTheNorth

Rob Schneider is… A polar bear! #NormOfTheNorth

So the film begins with Norm hunting a seal for food. Out hero, folks. #NormOfTheNorth

I’m not sure where on earth those reindeer got those poker cards or visors from, it doesn’t make sense. #NormOfTheNorth

Speaking of which, where did those Lemmings get all that roadwork equipment from as well? Are they scattered around in the North? I need answers! #NormOfTheNorth

Brace yourselves: an unwanted flashback to Norm’s childhood is coming… #NormOfTheNorth

So this little girl sees baby Norm and a bunch of other polar cubs, and runs over to them so she can pat them? What a dumbarse. I hope she gets eaten. #NormOfTheNorth

So… This film just establishes that Norm can talk to humans all of a sudden? Okay. #NormOfTheNorth

Hello, film. In regards to this scene between Norm and his dad, THE LION KING called and it’s scene back. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, great. Norm is dancing for no apparent reason. Don’t worry, there’s going to be pointless dance scenes like this throughout this film. #NormOfTheNorth

Hmm… You know I’ve never been to the Arctic, but I’m pretty sure that this isn’t how animals act when humans visit the area. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, geez. Norm is dancing again. #NormOfTheNorth

Bill Nighy has shown up as “Scorates”. *Sigh*… Bill Nighy… Did you really need money that badly? You deserve better than this. #NormOfTheNorth

Is it just me, or does Socrates looks strangely like John Oliver? Seriously, they’re a dead ringer for each other. #NormOfTheNorth

Hmmm… I don’t know about anyone else, but I think that Norm may be xenophobic towards humans. #NormOfTheNorth

Well, I think we found the reason why all the animals have items from the human world. There’s a big bloody condo in the middle of the Arctic. #NormOfTheNorth

“This Director needs some direction” Clearly nobody said that to this film’s director during production. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, no. The Lemmings are going to be this film’s Minions aren’t they? #NormOfTheNorth

“That bird just pooped on me!” The humour of this film, folks. #NormOfTheNorth

“Anything can be fixed in post!” Well… Maybe except this film. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, Heather Graham. Like Bill Nighy, you deserve better than this too. #NormOfTheNorth

“Mr. Greene, the director quit!” That would explain how this film turned out. #NormOfTheNorth

Ken Jeong is voicing the bad guy “Mr. Greene” in this film. It’s the type of role he was born to play. #NormOfTheNorth

Yeah… This whole plan that Norm & Socrates to save the Arctic doesn’t make any sense. #NormOfTheNorth

Wait, hold the phone! Is that “Geronimo” by Aussie band Sheppard playing in the film right now?! My God. Even they deserve a better film for their song to be a part of too. #NormOfTheNorth

You know with all the enhancements of CG animation over the years, why does the animation in this film make it look like it came out in 2001, not 2016? #NormOfTheNorth

You know what? Everyone in it deserves better than this film. Except for Rob Schneider, he totally deserves to be in this. #NormOfTheNorth

“Mr. Greene, let me be frank. Condos in the Arctic is a ludicrous idea.” Man. Even the film thinks the villain’s plan is stupid. #NormOfTheNorth

Ahhh… Are the Lemmings… Pissing into a fish tank?! #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, dear God! The Lemmings ate pissing into Mr. Green’s pot plant! FFS. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, geez. Norm and everyone is dancing for the 30th time in this film so far. #NormOfTheNorth

PLOT TWIST! The reason why Norm’s long long grandfather had disappeared… Was that he was kidnapped by Mr. Greene! #NormOfTheNorth

Holy shit! Mr. Green has come into the restaurant to where Norm & Vera eating and he’s packing heat! #NormOfTheNorth

You know what? As annoying as the Minions can be in the DESPICABLE ME franchise, they way more tolerable than the Lemmings in this film. #NormOfTheNorth

If everyone believes that Norm is an actor in a polar bear in the Arctic, why are the make-up artists putting make-up on his face? #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, FFS. Norm is bloody dancing again! #NormOfTheNorth

I bet any money if you cut out all the dance scenes, this film would be only about 30 minutes long. #NormOfTheNorth

Well… That joke that was made about Norm’s glittery costume was… Very awkward. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, geez. It hasn’t been 3 minutes since the last dance scene and Norm is already dancing again! #NormOfTheNorth

Norm remembering the words that Socrates said earlier, is this film’s way of reminding the viewers that Bill Nighy is in this film. #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, geez! That face that Olympia made was frightening! #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, geez! Enough of the farting, Lemmings! #NormOfTheNorth

Oh, wow. How are Norm & his Grandpa going to get out of this one. I hope they do somehow. #NormOfTheNorth

Yes! Norm is stuck under some rubble at the bottom of the ocean. That means the film will end righ-Oh… Norm has escaped. Dammit. #NormOfTheNorth

Yeah… Grandpa is alive… Whatever. #NormOfTheNorth

So… Norm has named the new king by his father. I guess you can say he is… The King of the North. #NormOfTheNorth

Well, this is surprising quiet, touching and restrained way to end the film. Hopefully nothing goes wron-Oh, no. OH, NO!!! #NormOfTheNorth


Ahhhh… Did Norm just stage drive on a bunch of Lemmings and squashed them to death?! #NormOfTheNorth

OH, DEAR GOD!!! Norm is now twerking and slapping his own arse! This is meant be a kids film, right?! This is just wwwrrrooonnnggg!!! #NormOfTheNorth

Well, that’s the end of the film. While the previous animated films I have done (FOODFIGHT! and THE EMOJI MOVIE) were far worse, this one is still pretty bad overall. #NormOfTheNorth

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 82nd edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon!keep a look out at the end of March for my 83rd edition, which I could be doing on one of the following three bad films: THE COUNTRY BEARS, GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE or TOYS. Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
