This research examines impoliteness aspects presented in Paranorman movie using pragmatic approach. The objectives of this research are to describe the types of impoliteness strategies addressed to the main character, to explain the realizations of the impoliteness strategies addressed to the main character, and to describe the main character’s responses to the impoliteness strategies addressed to him in Paranorman movie. This research used mixed method, a combination of qualitative and quantitative method. The data were in the form of utterances spoken by the characters in Paranorman movie, while the contexts of the data were dialogues. The sources of this research were the script of the dialogues spoken by the characters in Paranorman movie and the video of the movie. The primary instrument of this research was the researcher herself, while the secondary instrument was the data sheet. The researcher used analysis of documents by note-taking to collect the data. Referential analysis was used to analyze the data. Finally, the data were triangulated by experts and those interested in the same field of the study to gain the reliability of the research. The results of this research are described as follows. First, four types of impoliteness strategy occur in other characters’ utterances in Paranorman movie. They are bald on record impoliteness, positive impoliteness, negative impoliteness, and sarcasm. Bald on record impoliteness becomes the most dominant type used by other characters. Meanwhile, withhold politeness does not exist in the other characters’ utterances. Second, each type of impoliteness strategy has its particular realization. Bald on record impoliteness is realized in the form of using direct, clear, and unambiguous statement. Positive impoliteness is expressed in the form of disassociating from the other, calling the other names, and utilizing taboo words. Negative impoliteness can be realized in the form of condescending, scorning, or ridiculing, and associating the other with a negative aspect explicitly. Meanwhile, sarcasm or mock politeness is only realized in the form of employing insincere politeness. Using direct, clear, and unambiguous statement becomes the highest realization. However, using inappropriate identity markers, invading the other’s space, being silent and failing to thank are not used by the other characters. Third, there are three responses which occur in the movie, they are no response, accepting, and countering the face attack. Countering the face attack is divided into two subcategories: offensive and defensive countering. Offensive countering becomes the most frequent choice of responses of impoliteness strategy used by the main character. To sum up, the responses of impolite acts are influenced by the way the face attacks are conveyed and the relationship between the persons doing the face attacks and the addressees.
