A Funny Little Family Film, Despite Predictability...
Howie Mandel and Fred Savage star in "Little Monsters," a tale that features the "Monsters under the bed" delusions and reality.
In 2001, the world witnessed a great monster tale unlike any other: "Monster's Inc.," a computer-animation film featuring the voice talents of Billy Crystal and John Goodman, as well as James Coburn and Steve Buscemi.
"Monsters Inc." achieved what "Little Monsters" was trying so obviously to do. Make a funny and endearing monster film. Unfortunately, due to too much "cuteness" and predictability, "Little Monsters" was sadly left to gather dust by most people.
I'll admit, "Little Monsters" is nowhere near as fun, entertaining or smart as "Monsters Inc.," but it still deserves more credit than it receives.
So it's predictable and cute: I've seen worse. Howie Mandel is pretty funny, and Fred Savage is a lot better of a child actor than Macaulay Culkin ever was.
I recommend "Little Monsters" to you, because despite its flaws, it's still a good, clean family film.
