Tagline: North's hopping mad with his parents, and now he's off on a world wide adventure!
Plot: On the outside, 10-year-old North (Elijah Wood) appears to have everything--he’s the head of his class, a talented actor, and a star athlete, and he even has successful parents (Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus). However, his problem lies in that last piece of the puzzle. His parents, while successful, are trapped inside their own complicated world. They pay nary a drop of attention to their accomplished son--so little, in fact, that they don’t even miss a beat when he simulates a coronary at the dinner table and slumps to the ground. In a huff, he declares himself a "free agent."
Director Rob Reiner's NORTH farcically tells the tale of the young titular character as he embarks upon a globe-trotting trek around the world, visiting couples from Texas to Hawaii to Alaska as the stunned world follows. North is guided along his path of parental enlightenment by a mysterious stranger (Bruce Willis) who takes forms ranging from a bunny to a sleigh driver. Meanwhile, back at home, a seedy lawyer and North’s megalomaniacal best friend hatch their own nefarious plots to cash in on his newfound fame. Willis is in his wisecracking glory as North’s morphing guardian angel.
