Audience Reviews for Purple People Eater

I both loved and hated this movie. On one hand, we have a great message for both kids and adults to get involved with their families and communities to make a difference in each others lives for the good of all, and to have fun in life. But on the other hand, this was completely corny and cheesy, and the purple monster was stupid and annoying. I'd recommend having your kids watch it, but it'll be hard to watch it with them.

I loved it when I was little, but haven't been able to see it in years! I think a little Drew Barrymore is in it.
