Gnorm is just an average Gnome. But he wants to impress the lady Gnomes by doing something heroic. So he steals the Gnome's magic stones to expose them to sunlight to recharge them. When he gets to the surface, (Gnome's live deep underground) he witnesses a murder, and the killer ends up with his stones. Detective Casey, who was working a sting operation with the murdered man, (another detective) is blamed for botching the sting, and causing the death. Wanting to catch the killer to clear his name, he teams up with Gnorm, who he accidentally discovers. He is going to need Samantha's help, but she thinks he is a nut. You see, no one else knows about Gnorm. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

No it's gnot
23 January 2000 | by jbassett-2See all my reviews

Straight to the point, this movie is bad. I have trouble calling it even a B movie, and probably ranks at the C level. However, if you have an odd sense of humor, you will get a sick sense of satisfaction from this movie. I was grinning all the way through this movie, but a grimace was hiding just underneath. The funniest scene is when the gnome character insists that gnome is pronounced ga-nome. Still to this day, I find myself grinning whenever I think about the comment "no it's gnot", and say it whenever possible. My suggestion is to see this movie, but see it when you truly have nothing better to do, as it will rank somewhere between a complete waste of time, and the greatest experience ever (ok, not quite, but it was enjoyable). If you are expecting a serious film, look elsewhere, but for classic C film quality, look no further.
