Is Je suis nom at least a colloquial thing that's correct?

I watched Despicable Me 2 in French a while ago and I heard " Je suis (nom) " from two characters, Margo and the main villain. Is that sometimes correct?

Actually, you can hear that said quite often. In my understanding the difference is very much like in English:

Je m'appelle Chris. -- My name is Chris.
Je suis Chris. -- I am Chris.

The former is, well, more formal.

-- Chris (not a native speaker).
