Free Jimmy (Slipp Jimmy fri)
A drug-addled elephant is on the run from people who either want to help him or kill him in this dark computer-animated comedy that is decidedly not for children.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This adult-orientated, computer-generated animation isn't an especially successful outing but still serves as an impressive antidote to the Disney-Pixar norm."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Deeply unhinged, deeply awful."
‑ James Christopher, Times [UK]
"You would expect at least a spark of wit. But no, there's nothing."
‑ , Sun Online
"Pic could be too dark, dirty and insufficiently funny to achieve more than cult success."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Variety
"Free Jimmy is a sledgehammer Norwegian animation that metes out all manner of cruelty to dumb animals, not least the ones in the audience."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"The brief relationship that the escaped elephant forms with a resourceful moose is oddly touching, but the fatuities surrounding it ensure that any deeper involvement is unlikely."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"Norway may be wonderful for many things but feature-length animation currently isn't one of them."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"They say an elephant never forgets. But even the most anally-retentive pachyderm would be desperate to banish this misfiring mess to the darkest reaches of memory."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"But the characters don't add to the conception. Nor does the basic animation."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
