North is the 1994 globe-trotting family dramedy from celebrated actor turned filmmaker Rob Reiner, based on the novel by Alan Zweibel. A child named North (Elijah Wood) is a stellar student, athlete, and actor, yet he is worried that his parents don't pay enough attention to him simply because they ignore him while arguing one night at the dinner table. To this end, he divorces from his parents and causes a contrived media circus that results in kids having control over their parents. Such a revolution is spearheaded by North's acquaintance Winchell (Matthew McCurley), a journalist for the school newspaper. Judge Buckle rules in favor of North, but then adds that he must choose a new set of parents by Labor Day or be put in an orphanage. So, he travels to such as Texas, Hawaii, Alaska and Africa, where a slew of funny situational jokes and displays of native cultures ensues. Back home, his real parents have awakened and send North a video tape saying they want him back so North heads home, care of a Fed Ex driver. Meanwhile, Winchell has become head of a major corporation, and plots to kill North when he decides to return to his original parents.
