Maurice: I mean...
Brian Stevenson: I know, you're going to grant me three wishes, right?
Maurice: 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.

Alternate Versions

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 »

A great comical movie for kids and adults to in joy.
22 December 2016 | by c_taylor-60553See all my reviews

Like a funny movie once in awhile. Well the movie Little Monsters is an amazing movie that will make you laugh. Between comedy, old special effects and actors it's great. The 27 year old movie Little Monsters has special effects are OK but they are nothing like the special effects today. In one of the scenes a the main character falls through his bedroom floor. You can tell that he had something on him bringing him though the floor but you don't know what. In another scene A fire is started. Instead of the writer using a green screen they use real fire. Between Howie Mendel, Ben Savage, and Fred Savage. Most of the actors in this movie ended up making it big in Hollywood. For example Howie Mandel is one of the main judges on America's got Talent. Ben has been in Girl and Boy Meets world. The rest of the actors either are dead or not acting as much anymore.

The language and script is one of the funniest. The movie is 27 years old and is still is one of the funniest. Howie plays one of the main characters and he is the funniest. The main monster makes fun of himself and acts like a teenager. The main leading lady makes fun of the leading male saying he was to stupid to understand one of their science projects.

I recommend this movie to anybody who has kids age 10-12. I give this movie a 9/10. If you like a comical movie I would go and buy this movie.
