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

Very campy!

Everybody needs a good friend at times. In the movie "Munchie", it proves what I mean. You got a kid who lives with a divorced mother(Loni Anderson). They've relocated, he's not popular at school, he doesn't like the new boyfriend, life is bad. Until he makes a friend with a magical creature named Munchie(voiced by Dom DeLuise). Munchie loves pizza, and he is one true friend anyone can have. He helps him with the bullies, get him the girl of his dreams(Jennifer Love Hewitt), and most of all get rid of the jerk boyfriend of hers. It wasn't long when she opens her eyes about her boyfriend after he finds him drunk and passed out. The other star I truly like is actor Arte Johnson playing the kind and helpful Professor Cruikshank. He will be entrusted deep to him. This movie was rather campy. The cast was good, and the storyline is common. Not the greatest thing, but is highly watchable. 2 out of 5 stars.
