Hey, dude. Come here bud. You don't know it yet, but tonight is your lucky night.
What do you mean?
I know, you're going to grant me three wishes, right?
Wishes? Wishes? Wishes are bush-league leprechaun, pal. I'm a monster, okay. Listen to this. I'm a monster and monsters don't do wishes.
Then what do monsters do?
Good question. I have the time of my life.

In the DVD and theatrical cut, when Brian is first in the monster's world, he runs into a creature that has long legs and says, "Trick or treat, smell my feet." For some reason, in most television airings, this is changed "Anyone who is a friend of Maruice's is mine." See more »
An astounding film like this should be in the top fantasy and family lists, and I'm shocked that it isn't. I first saw it actually about a year ago, but completely forgot about it after that until about a month ago. Since then I've probably watched it 7 or 8 times. It just plunges you into believing in magic. Kids movies are NOT made like this today...and I wasn't even alive in the 80's. But this movie has more substance, more of a story and reason to being made. It starts off showing what kind of life Brian has, but quickly picks up when Maurice enters the scene. And it all turns to fun and games. But just as quickly it turns serious, but I won't give that away. The sets are amazing, the acting is great, the costumes are fun and wild looking. The swearing caught me off guard, but it's nothing kids haven't heard already. Either this movie was rated by another system or the MPAA just overlooked it since it did have such a small release...sadly. This film has to be the most underrated film I have ever wathced...It has quickly become one of my favorites and probably will always be...
If you're a fan of quality movies then watch this one because it will blow you away.
