Plenty of fun to kill an hour
8 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

For those of you who gave this movie anything less than 10/10, you are judging this movie far too harshly!!! I enjoyed this more than Critters and Gremlins, it was an hour of fun and features possibly the most ridiculous ending to a movie that I couldn't stop laughing at! Prank week was hilarious, and the ghoulies themselves were absolutely hilarious. Oh, and it also has Matthew Lillard and Jason Scott Lee in it, with the voice of Mrs Krabbaple from the Simpsons Marsha Wallace! If you have ever wanted to see a movie to laugh at when you are really down on life, this is the medicine I would prescribe. It shows us how silly life is that a movie like this can actually feature Hollywood stars!!!
