Storyline

In this in-name-only sequel to Munchies (1987), a new kid in town, Gage Dobson, can't find his place in the new environment despite having such a cool name. The kids at school bully him, the girl he likes doesn't register him and his mom is about to marry a scoundrel. Everything changes for Gage Dobson when he stumbles into Munchie, a friendly gremlin-like creature that dresses like a lounge singer, sounds like a stand-up comedian and has magic powers. They become friends and Munchie decides to help the kid with all these problems. Gage Dobson is about to get even! If only there wasn't a mad scientist who wants to use Munchie for experiments to learn how the creature ticks. Written by Anonymous

Utter cinematic brilliance
2 January 2006 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest movie I've ever seen. Get blazed with your friends at night and prepare to laugh until your spleen explodes. There's hundreds of classic, quotable moments: when the bully's head slowly turns toward the camera as he prepares to tear Gage Dobson down. Gage's constant hallucinations (a firing squad? His own funeral? Is this really a kids' movie?). Chaos in the pizza place: "let's try Chinese instead!" The constant slew of subliminal dirty jokes and cleavage shots thrown in for the dads. The bouncin' soundtrack of farting tubas and tinkling synths whenever Munchie gets into mischief. Munchie is pure, unadulterated comedic genius, perhaps only surpassed in brilliance by the 1994 sequel, Munchie Strikes Back. Where is the triple-disc Criterion Collection version?
