howie mandel is the only thing in this movie worth watching for. I'll admit that i watch everytime it's on...but it's only because its so stupid. I guess 5th grade humor still has a place in my heart. A young boy (savage) finds that monsters (mandel) are real..and discovers their strange silly world. and umitimtly gets tricked by his new monster friend into becoming one...wackyness insues
