Storyline

Earl Williams is a dreamer teenager obsessed with monsters, who fantasizes his life as if he were living in the world of the monsters of the Universal Studios. Although being an excellent student, his intolerant and nasty school teacher Mrs. Perdue does not like him and punishes him for any minor fault. His supportive father Les Williams is also a dreamer, who has never been successful in life. When his father dies, his mother becomes lost with two boys, and tries to change the behavior of Earl. One day, the boy finds the "true Frankenstein" lost by a Carnival, and decides to bring the monster back to life. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Les Williams: You know, I went to Hollywood once, tried to make it in show business. It was a long, long time ago. Long time ago. Now that I think about it, I had a lot of courage, you know? Go out to Hollywood from a little old town down south, see all them beautiful people, beautiful lights. You know there's a big ol' hill, on top is a big ol' sign that says Hollywood; it just sort of lords over all them people. Yep, I was gonna paint my dreams right across the silver screen.

Above Average Family Entertainment
17 March 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Earl Williams (Jamieson Boulanger) is a dreamer teenager obsessed with monsters, who fantasizes his life as if he were living in the world of the monsters of the Universal Studios. Although being an excellent student, his intolerant and nasty school teacher Mrs. Perdue (Louise Fletcher) does not like him and punishes him for any minor fault. His supportive father Les Williams (Burt Reynolds) is also a dreamer, who has never been successful in life. When his father dies, his mother becomes lost with two boys, and tries to change the behavior of Earl. One day, the boy finds the "true Frankenstein" lost by a Carnival, and decides to bring the monster back to life. "Frankenstein and Me" is a story with ups and downs, but it is attractive most of the time, having a great message in the end. I saw it in a VHS horribly dubbed in Portuguese, with mistakes in the translation, but anyway this movie is an above average family entertainment. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Frankenstein"
