Overview

A boy divorces his parents in this comic fantasy for the family. North Elijah Wood is the sort of kid most parents dream of -- he's bright, well-behaved, a good student, and a great baseball player. But North's Mom and Dad Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander are so busy with their lives and careers that they barely have time for him. A man dressed as the Easter Bunny Bruce Willis who serves as North's conscience and advisor suggests to him that if he's not happy with his parents, maybe he could do better elsewhere. North hires a lawyer, Arthur Belt Jon Lovitz, who presents his case to Judge Buckle Alan Arkin; the judge declares North a free agent, and he gives North two months to find new parents, otherwise he'll be sent to the orphans' home. North finds himself travelling the globe auditioning prospective parents, while a boy named Winchell Matthew McCurley thinks that North's legal victory could be the first step in kids taking over the world. North's would-be parents include Kathy Bates, Dan Aykroyd, Reba McIntire, and Kelly McGillis.

    Regardless of it being labeled as one of the worst movies, it's

    Regardless of it being labeled as one of the worst movies, it's actually pretty good. It is pretty funny, and Elijah Wood is such a good actor, as a child and an adult.

    Great Family Movie

    This is a great family movie. Something that everyone can sit down together and watch. Not to mention, it's hillarious. Elijah Wood does a wonderful job playing North and the whole ensemble is a joy to watch.
