A great idea with an awful, poorly directed execution.

No REAL horror movie fan missed this when they were a kid....I saw it like a million times when I was 11 or 12; And it still holds up after all these years (I'm 40!).

Not a great movie. But a fun one that I have enjoyed since I was a kid many many many times.

A wonderful mix of 80's humor and special effects with old school Universal Studio monsters. A must see for its campy dialogue and over all enjoyability. A true classic.

Goonies meets Halloween. One of the best.

Oh my god, if you love 80's stuff, whether you grew up in the 80's or were born later but like some 80's stuff like I am, then I would highly recommend giving this movie a watch. Everything campy and awesome from fun 80's movies and tv shows is here. Even if you weren't born in the 80's, i still check this movie out.

25 point separation between audience and critics who love dramas and especially love documentaries.

Another reason never to listen to the Tomatometer. This film is a classic. To any parent that wants to introduce their children to scary movies, this is ideal. It's one of the few films where little kids beat up monsters!

This movie is awesome! That's right, awesome! Is it utterly ridiculous and nonsensical? Yes. Is it terribly dated to the 80s? Oh most definitely. But in the end, none of that matters because Monster Squad is a near perfect piece of entertaining fluff that will make the kid in all of you jump for joy.

And "why is that?" you may ask. Just look at the premise! Everything about this movie is a total nostalgic trip. Here you have five classic Universal movie monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, the Wolfman, Gillman, and the Mummy) teaming up to take over the world (it's never explained HOW they plan to accomplish this by the way) and going up against a group of likable 80s kid stereotypes who feel like the discount Goonies. Throw in some goofy 80s cheese and a short running time of 82 minutes and you've got yourself an unforgettable piece of goofy fun.

If nothing else, this is a great Saturday night buddy movie to laugh and marvel at. Have at it!
