Hey, hey, this looks great! I have always dreamt of a life without the ever present nuisance of electricity! Uh, uh, just let me grab something from the plane! I seem to have left my butter churn in the overhead compartment, hehe!

Quite Possibly the Worst Movie Ever Made
I saw this movie with an 8 year-old. It made me want to cry. This isn't
because it was scary. It was because it was the worst movie I had ever seen
and probably the worst I will ever see. Great cast means great movie,
right??? NO! Not this time. Great cast, absolutely pathetic movie.
Garbage, toxic waste, junk: they all describe North. North has no plot. It
starts out with a kid falling asleep in a department store– how original!!!
Even members of it's intended audiences (children) do not like it. I saw
the six year old girl behind me weeping and the nine year old boy ahead of
me sleeping! Do not rent. Do not buy. Do not think about. Do not act
foolishly like I have and waste even a minute writing about it. Forget that
it ever existed.
