Trivia:
"The Munsters" (1964) series director Gene Reynolds was the original choice to helm this movie, but found it difficult to work with the director of photography and was fired after just a couple of days for not working fast enough (the film had to be shot in 18 to 25 days). He was replaced by Earl Bellamy.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Grandpa is trying to get Herman to take the "sea-sick" pill, he is wearing gloves. When he himself takes the wolf pill by mistake, his left hand starts to change and he is no longer wearing a glove on that hand, but is still wearing a glove on the right hand.See more »
Quotes:
Eddie Munster:Mom, how come pop inherited an English title? I thought he was made in Germany.
Lily Munster:Well you see, Eddie, at an early age, your father left doctor Frankenstein's lab in Germany...
Herman:[Herman puts a monocle over his eye and looks in the mirror, which promptly shatters] That's right, son.
Lily Munster:...and then he arrived in England and he was adopted by a family called Munster, who gave him their name.

Good movie version of the series, 28 January 2006
Author: mrlanceb from California

Only the laugh track is missing from this movie version of the classic TV series. The absence of the canned laughter makes some of the sight gags seem like they go on a little too long, but other than that, I give the writer and director credit for doing the series justice. It's too bad that writers and directors of more recent times can't learn a few things from their predecessors about making movies out of TV shows.

This movie was filmed around the time the series was still in production, using writers and a director from the original. No doubt, that is a major advantage when trying to capture the original flavor. Some might argue that the movie should have been done in black and white, but the color is not overdone and actually adds a nice touch. With the exception of Marilyn, the original cast is there. Marilyn's role changed hands in the series anyway. Debbie Watson does fine, so it's not a significant distraction.

This is good light fare for the family looking for some classic innocent fun. Fans of the series should like it as well. It is nothing more than it tries to be - a movie version of the series with a few extras (color, location, and length.) The movie delivers on that, and I give it high marks.

Fans of this movie should also try "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken." It has nothing to do with the Munsters (other than the house facade happens to be located next door to the Munster house on the Universal Studios back-lot), but it is more classic comedy with a spooky twist. It stars Don Knotts during his heyday.
