Eleven-year-old North (Elijah Wood, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) realizes that his parents (Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, TV’s “Seinfeld”) never pay attention to him. After talking to a wise man in an Easter Bunny suit (Bruce Willis, Die Hard), North comes up with the idea of becoming a free agent. After winning a court case, North is given two months to find new parents, leading to an amazing, hilarious adventure. Featuring an all-star cast including Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters), Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine), Kathy Bates (Misery), Jon Lovitz (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”), John Ritter (TV’s “Three’s Company”) and, in her first-ever role, Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation), NORTH is a comedy unlike any other. Newly remastered.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's depressing enough to see a director turn into a button pusher. But what can you say about a director who just keeps hitting the same button?
Rotten: The intrinsic failure of Alan Zweibel and Andrew Scheinman's script is that it tips its hand from the start.
Rotten: How could director Rob Reiner, whose touch for what pleases a mass audience is usually unfailing, have strayed this far?
Rotten: The amalgams of TV stereotypes that satirize foreign and regional cultures are embarrassing.
