When Brian and Coleman are fighting at the school you can clearly see Brian knock Coleman's hat off and see the hat fall. However, when the Principal is walking towards them and they're shown fighting again, the hat is back on Coleman's head. See more »
Little Monsters is a revolting "comedy" about a young boy Brian, played by the one dimensional Fred Savage who ventures under his bed to discover a world of monsters, befriending the equally unfunny Howie Mandel. Movie starts with Savages parents marriage on the rocks, by chance Savage finds out there really are monsters under his bed. He meets Maurice (Mandel) and soon they begin to journey into the laughably stupid world of monsters that is apparently under everyone's beds. I'll be sure to check tonight. The two play some rather lame practical jokes on other people and some stupid games. After a practical joke on a girl he knows, Brian decides he wants no more and doesn't want to go back. Meantime in monster land Snik (Rick Ducommun) and his boss "Boy" wanted Brian and decide to kidnap his brother, to no surprise played by Ben Savage. Brian gathers some kids, a nerd, his girl and eventually a fat bully, and with flash lights that hurt the bad guys go to get his brother back. Soon they have a showdown with "Boy", yet another creepy stupid character who is quite disturbing to look at and hear talk. The gang manages to defeat them with some illumination just in time to return home and not turn into monsters. This movie is truly bad and only funny because it is so bad. Back in 92' a friend said it was funny, he was wrong. There is almost nothing funny about any of the crap they pull in this movie, presumably meant for kids and rather disgusting in many ways. Howie Mandel is one of the most unfunny people in Hollywood and is only staying in the spotlight due to late night TV allowing him on to do bits. Savage as in all his movie roles is one dimensional with that haircut borrowed from The Wonder Years to boot. I grew up with the wonder years so watching Savage is always a hoot. Daniel Stern is totally wasted in this film as Brians dad, he was better in the Wonder years as just a voice. Only one part seems to stand out as funny, when leader boy gets his face melted off and begins to talk. Savage of course screams like a girl, which is quite amusing. Overall I would avoid this if your looking for good writing and comedy, although I admit every time its on I have to watch this train wreck and get a laugh. It is that stupid. 4/10 stars.
