Audience Reviews for Little Monsters

Some friends can be REAL MONSTERS. And some monsters can be REAL FRIENDS.

Saw it again! Great kids movie! Loved it when I was a kid and saw it again and really enjoyed it one more time. I know kids these days will enjoy it if they saw it too so well recommended.

A child meets the monster that lives under his bed. He even becomes one of his best friends. Soon the child discovers a whole new world of fun and games under his bed where pulling pranks on kids and other monsters is the main attraction.

Why is there this rule that like, for a movie to be a classic, it has to be good the whole time? this movie is witty, suspenseful, creepy, and hilarious for about 3 minutes. its just that first you have to watch a bunch of kids having pussy fights with each other and getting in trouble with their dads and getting detention from the principal and getting grounded by their dads and a kid going through a Rocky montage to get ready before he catches his monster and a fat redhead kid drinking warm piss that he thinks is applejuice because he lost his sense of smell in an accident and kids dressing like characters from the original Resident Evil and then dressing in big ugly lightbulb Transformer costumes that they made in like, 4 seconds with some q-tips and butterfinger wrappers n' shit and once thats over you get to see...

A great fantasy adventure kids movie! I really enjoyed it, I just wish I'd seen it as a kid. It's a lot of fun, the actors are good, and so is the story.

A movie I saw on TV ages ago. LOL pretty lame, but there is little Fred and Ben Savage. And that's got some win.
