29 April 2002 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Little Monsters is a funny and moving family comedy that reminds me of my childhood days when I first saw the movie. I thought that the cast was perfect, the script was hilarious, and the special and make-up effects were outstanding.

Brian Stevenson (Fred Savage) has just moved into a new house with his parents and little brother Eric (Ben Savage). He has no friends and is not doing well with grades. That is until he discovers that a monster named Maurice (Howie Mandell) has invaded his room. He starts out scared of Maurice, but quickly becomes best friends with him. Maurice takes Brian to a world of Monsters under his bed and shows him the time of his life. Brian finds out though that the world is ruled by an evil monster (Frank Whaley) who terrorizes people and has not been seen latley. Together, Brian and Maurice embark on an adventure of a lifetime to put this monster away.

Fred Savage (The Wonder Years), Howie Mandell (Bobby's World), Ben Savage (Boy Meets World), Rick Ducommun (Blank Check, Scary Movie), Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction, Field of Dreams), Devin Ratray (Home Alone 1 & 2), Daniel Stern (The Wonder Years).

Directed by Richard Greenberg of R. Greenberg/Associates in New York who design titles to movies and optical effects.

This movie is a must see for sure!
