When Charlie relates his Critter history to Annie and Josh, he says it all started in 1984. Yet Mr. Menges' tabloid newspapers (and the release date of the first film) would indicate the first attack was in 1986. See more »


Annie: Dad, you're going to have to deal with this. You got to think about it, make some decisions.
Clifford: Annie, I'm going to eat my dinner, and then I'm going to watch some moronic situation comedy, and then I'm going to sleep the sleep of the dead. Can we worry about this tomorrow?

Not as good as first two but it still as some fun moments
2 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie start off with a family of 3 going to a rest stop but there tyre burst and had to stop and fix it.

Then kids are messing around and then soon go down a big hill and then Charlie comes from underneath the ground and scary all kids. (We only person to return to this sequel and the one after just like Burt in Tremors series).

He tells these kids about Critters (As we see this in flashback of the last two movies).

A Critters seem to enter the Minnie-van, the family are unaware of this and the end up going back to their New York apartment and then the Critters laid more eggs under the van and soon start hatching and head toward the basement.

I am going give this movie 5 out of 10 I found this movie are lot more funny then first however I still think that second one was even more funny then this and better movie then this movie.

This movie as it's moments and keep you entertained and never get boring at all.

If you liked the last two movies you should like this movie as well.
