Unforgettable childhood film
18 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I thought this was the coolest movie back when I was a kid, I recently watched it again after many years, I introduced it to some of the younger kids in my family and they loved it. Fred Savage and his not as great little brother, Ben really related well with kids, I really didn't care for Daniel Stern in this film and Howie Mandel was super as the monster Maurice. I recommend this to kids who would like to see a good kids film for once, I know this is out of date for todays kiddos, but worth watching over and over again as the years go by. I really miss films like this and never will forget this film.
