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.

The children's play thing that you could buy at Toys r Us for like $15, is a better special effect, then this animatronic chuckie cheese nightmare!?!?!
10 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie once and I thought is was good, but I just recently saw this movie and WOW now I know how bad this is.

The biggest problem I have is that it's about a boy who becomes a monster. That's a problem because it's called My Pet Monster, NOT A boy who became a monster. On top of that, it suffers from lazy writing, lazy directing, lazy animatronics and lazy editing.

Also, the movie has a very VERY creepy ending that ends on a cliffhanger, with no spin off show or a sequel, so long story short, its like the director is basically telling us that you have wasted an hour on a really bad movie.

All an all, the movie is bad, but not the worst thing i've seen.

4/10
