Product Description

Leap into a fantastically monstrous world where hijinks become high art, curfews and chores vanish from sight, and a wacky, irrepressible monster can become your best friend! Eleven-year-oldBrian (Fred Savage, "The Wonder Years") knows that there's a monster under his bed. And when he sets a trap for ithe captures an experience beyond his wildest dreams! Led by Maurice (Howie Mandel), a horned, blue-green prankster extraordinaire, Brian discovers the vast subterranean hideout of the "Little Monsters"and the best friendship he's ever had. But soon, Brian realizes he'll have to shut the door on this dream come true...or risk the nightmare of becoming a Little Monster himself!

Amazon.com

Kind of a demented Monsters, Inc. meets Oliver Twist, the 1989 live-action film Little Monsters takes every child's nightmare of a monster under the bed and spins it into a dark tale of a secret underworld where children and adults turn into monsters and run wild without rules or any sense of social niceties. Maurice (Howie Mandel), the monster under Brian's (Fred Savage) bed, is not an average monster, but a hyper-talking, mischievous, blue-faced boy who disappears from inside his clothes when exposed to bright light and who says he wants nothing more than to be Brian's friend. As the new kid in town with parents who are constantly fighting, Brian is in desperate need of a friend and is easily lured into the underworld of the Little Monsters. There he learns to spy on his classmates as they sleep and raise havoc around their homes and lives. At first, his escapades make him insanely happy, but soon his exploits take a toll on his performance in school, his interaction with family, and his friendships with other kids. Brian eventually discovers that all is not quite as simple and free in the monster's world as it appears and that perhaps total freedom from societal rules isn't quite as good as it sounds. The pace of pranking is frantic in this film, the images can be disturbing, and some of the jokes, antics, and language are downright crude, so it's definitely not appropriate for children who are easily scared or those under age 10. --Tami Horiuchi

Have you ever wondered what goes on under your bed at night? Did you ever think for a second that there might be something living under your own bed? Well, this young boy, whom is played by Fred Savage, (the Wonder Years), soon discovers a whole knew world under his bed. He then meets this friendly young lookin' monster, named Maurice, helps him use his imagination and be able to do the impossible. If you're asking me, I think this film has so much imagination and wonders in it, anyone whose anyone, will enjoy this childlike fantasy. So, take my advise, buy this film, you won't regret it. Or you probably could catch it on cable. This is one magical movie that you could not miss!

Fred Savage and Howie Mandel star in this 1989 fantasy.
A boy befriends a monster from a magical world under
his bed. I've loved this since I was a kid and so glad
to have it on dvd that has good picture and sound,
but only the trailer. I recommend this great 80's
kid fantasy.

This movie was amazing even though i am really mad that this movie didnt come on dvd, this film was about a kid that moves, and comes upon a friend late at night only he is a monster from under the bed. Well when word of this gets to the underworld(under the bed) the guys in charge try to trap brian(main character) down there until day where he eventually will become a monster, in order to do that they kidknap his brother. ...try and get this movie onto dvd its amazing and worth to be on it.

I remember when this movie first came out. Snooty critics ripped it to shreds but the kids loved it. Two critically acclaimed critics did a scathing review of the movie but the movie still had its fan base. Besides who cares about the wayward opinions of the same high brow Beavis and Butthead critics that gave Speed 2: Booze Control two thumbs up? Exactly, now lets move on.

Story: Eric Stevenson(Fred Savage) moves into a different state and has a hard time adjusting there. He later on befriends a mischievous monster named Maurice(Howie Mandell) that is easily harmed by bright lights. Eric and Maurice become friends and they visit Maurice underworld home. Later on Eric's brother is kidnapped by the same creature that bullies Maurice as well as the ruler of that underworld and now has to rely on the help of Maurice as well as a friend and a former bully to help him retrieve his brother.

This movie brings back a lot of memories and after seeing it recently it still holds well after all these years. Howie Mandell is hilarious as the wise-cracking but fun-loving Maurice. Fred Savage as well as the rest of the cast is good also. I love the imagination of the writers also. Sure the movie has some dark undertones but as I kid I loved it and as an adult I still love it. The sets are creative down to the monsters. Now for the people that are comparing Maurice to Beetlejuice, there is a stark contrast there: Maurice is a likable doofus with a heart that sometimes takes his antics to far(like using hands to chew up an unlucky person's homework). Beetlejuice, on the other hand is an unlikable creep that put his ulterior motives before anything else. There is a very big difference in character there.

Little Monsters is a funny and slightly moving family comedy that reminds me of my childhood days when I first saw the movie - I just wanted to share it with my daughter =-D It is not for everybody though. My daughter thought that is was a good movie and wanted to watch it again...she is 4 years old any movie that she finds entertaining we have to watch at least 3 times; it may have been a little "mature" for her but I watched as a kid too and I turned out alright.

To sum it up. Fred Savage plays Brian who moves into a new town; he keeps getting into trouble and blamed for things that he didn't do. He eventually captures Howie Mandle who plays the monster Maurice. Maurice introduces Brian to the monster world and secretly tires to convert him. They become friends in the meantime. Brian has a disagreement in monster morality and decides it is not for him. Boy (<---Creepy bad guy monster) kidnaps his little brother Eric (who is Matt Savage) and Brian and Crew go to save the day. Maurice is a true friend and helps them get Eric and get out of monster world. At the end of the credits is the best when the call and tell their parents that they are in Malibu...

I still love this movie and I am 25 now. Although, it is not as funny as it was when I was a kid. After I watched this movie back in 1989 - 1990 I put the sarin wrap on the toliet...thought it was so funny...ended up being grounded. If you are one of those very overprotective parents I do not recommend you let your young one watch this movie. If you don't think putting sarin wrap on the toliet is a funny childish prank...you should probably not watch this movie...
