Other than the creature, who is quite amazing, I enjoyed this even less than when I saw it 28 years ago. I just couldn't get over the utter destruction that this creature causes. He eats everything. Somehow, the young woman, played by Hayley Mills, finds him cute and eventually puts up with his horrible behavior. I guess we're supposed to feel anger toward her because she threw away all her son's treasure because she feels it is time for him to grow up. Before he can eat the entire house she drives him to the city dump. The all-you- can-eat buffet. When she returns, he is back. At this point I've tired of it and don't really care.
