Three weeks into the New Year and it looks like we may already have a serious contender for the worst film of 2016. “Norm of the North,” the Rob Schneider-led animated feature which came in sixth place with $6.8 million over the weekend, has achieved a rare feat – a perfect 0% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
With thirty-six reviews counted, the film has not only not had a single positive critical review but has also managed to nab an average rating of 2.7/10 – a score on par with the infamous turkey “Gigli” along with the awful remakes of 1980s horror classics like “Prom Night” and “The Fog”. Even those films though managed at least one positive review each.
That score does put it ahead of two of the worst reviewed films of 2015 which both also scored a 0% Tomato-meter score – Adam Sandler’s Netflix western “The Ridiculous 6” (average rating: 2.3/10) and the unwanted comedy sequel “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” (average rating: 1.2/10). Yet ‘Norm’ did so with more reviews than either of those two.
