Movie Info

Little Monsters follows Dave (Alexander England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew's kindergarten class field trip after taking a serious liking to the fearless schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong'o). Dave's intentions are complicated by the presence of the world's most famous kids' show personality and competition for Miss Caroline's affections, Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad). One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak. Will Dave rise to the occasion and have a chance at Miss Caroline's heart, or will the zombies get there first?

  • Little Monsters may not live up to the Romero/Jackson films that influenced it, but it's a reasonably enjoyable zombie flick.

  • Nyong'o invests her teacher with such ferocious love, it's like she feared the Academy might see the film and retroactively revoke her statuette.

  • Little Monsters irreverently builds enough good will and comic energy in the early-going to carry it to its conclusion, so it's bound to gather a cult of some dimension.

  • Nyong'o is downright charming, to the point that you wonder how many more genres she can tackle in the years to come. Her comedic timing is on-point and her knack for action is sublime.

    Apr 19, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Miss Caroline has no qualms about resorting to violence, and there's something undeniably awesome about watching Nyong'o, clad in a bright yellow sundress, decapitating zombies with a shovel.

    Apr 8, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Regardless of how childish and stupid the story comes off as, the film exudes many laughs from its audience, including quite a few from myself.
