Storyline

Max is an average underdog boy trying to fit in at school but generally being a bit rubbish. During a field trip a statue turns him into a monster. A historian named Synder captures him and his sister but they break out in time to spoil their older brother, Rod's date. The monster scares his date's poodle before the dog show. Skipping on cash they take the dog to a cheap dog salon and the owner steals it and enters it himself. Rod swoops in and stops them from taking the prize and the men are sent to jail. For no logical reason the boy is restored and after begging to the statue the film ends on Synder gaining the power of the monster. Written by Mr. Q. Marx.

Amazing
31 July 2004 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Haven't seen the film in a very long time, so can't really remember too much about it, but I can remember that this is a classic not to be missed.

Growing up this film was one of my favourites, I even had a stuffed toy of the monster, although isn't quite the quality it was originally after using it as an object to replicate certain wrestling moves (I'm past that now).

I don't think much has to be said about this film other than it is GREAT.

If you have never seen this, go out and get it now!
