An average movie

20 years later, this movie has pretty much become the stuff of legends. Indeed, when it was released, it was a massive critical failure and many considered it as one of the worst movies ever made. The impact for Rob Reiner’s career would be quite dramatic and the guy never really fully recovered from the blow. Indeed, back in the 80’s, Reiner was one of the most successful directors at work.

North marks the beginning of the end for Rob Reiner. From 1984-1992, he had a pretty huge run as a director (This is Spinal Tap, Stand by Me, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally etc.) and everyone thought that this film would be another winner. Then it got bad reviews (most notably from Siskel and Ebert), it bombed hard at the box office, and has been a go-to punchline ever since. With that, ... read more

Brilliant To The Awful - Movies Watched In 2015 (324 movies items)

"This movie was slated when it first came out and I understand why that's the case but it's not a total dud. It's true there's no real laughs such and for a supposedly kids movie there are far too many adult references. Elijah Wood and Bruce Willis are great but I felt the ending was a bit of a cop out. Overall, it's OK but it far from being a great movie."

The impact for Rob Reiner’s career would be quite dramatic and the guy never really fully recovered from the blow. Indeed, back in the 80’s, Reiner was one of the most successful directors at work. Just check his track-record, it is quite impressive (‘This Spinal Tap’, ‘The Sure Thing’, ‘Stand by Me’, ‘When Harry Met Sally...’, ‘Misery’, ‘A Few Good Men’). But, he will never come back to this level following this debacle. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, was it really so bad? To be honest, I don’t think so. I mean, sure, it was really weak and completely misg” read more

“North marks the beginning of the end for Rob Reiner.

Then it got bad reviews (most notably from Siskel and Ebert), it bombed hard at the box office, and has been a go-to punchline ever since. With that, what went wrong? Elijah Wood was a young rising star with him playing the title character, who decides to divorce his bickering parents (Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and find a new set of folks all over the world. You thought that might be simple, right? Nope. Once the plot kicks in, there is a bunch of offensive and unfunny jokes regarding racism, different cultures and poor puns. Plu” read more

The Most Insulting Movie Moments (13 movies items)

"With an all-star cast, with then child star Elijah Wood, co-starring with Dan Akoyd, Reba MacEntire, Jason Alexander and Julia Louise-Dreyfus, is this a movie that would attract people? Nope. What's insulting about it is the mindset of the main character, North.Now in the movie, North decides to divorce his parents because they don't acknowledge his achievements. Not only does he divorces them, but searches the world for better parents. However, his journey was all a dream. Now the dream may co"

Roger Ebert's "Zero Stars" -ratings (59 movies items)

""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.""
