Audience Reviews for The Purple People Eater

  • Aug 28, 2013
    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.

    Strictly for the kiddies though Shelley Winters and Ned Beatty manage to give it some dignity. Interesting to see Neil Patrick Harris at such a young age. Terrific soundtrack for fans of 50's pop.
