First off, I would like to mention that on the box of this movie it clearly states that Munchie: "Delivers flying pizzas and brings on the parties!" but after i viewed this film I noticed that not only did he only deliver ONE flying pizza, but he also only brought on ONE party. That said, I would like to say that this was an excellent movie that all people should see if not buy. Munchie (whose voice is done brilliantly by Dom Deluise) is a wacky character who despite his rather corny appearences turns out to be an ancient creature of great wisdom. But Munchie is not the important character: this is the story of a young child who has just moved and is having a hard time meeting any friends. His mother is engaged to a jerk (who is not a lawyer despite the box advertising his occupation as such). His life can't get any worse... that is until he meets Munchie!! This is a wonderful and timeless tale for all children as well as the young at heart. Munchie becomes his only friend, but turns out to be much more trouble than he's worth. This is a coming of age story that teaches a valuable lesson but is fun all around! In conclusion, the only thing that could have made this movie any better would be if Munchie had delivered multiple pizzas and brought on several parties as was promised. I can let the lie about the 'lawyer' pass.

This movie was listed under the horror category. DEFINITELY NOT! This is a COMEDY. Even Munchie himself wasn't "Horrible". Mischievous, YES! Horrible, NO! For some undisclosed reason, a man had Munchie locked in a box, and was running from the police. When he finally elude them, he threw Munchie into a "Bottomless Pit". (As it turns out, not so "bottomless" after all! He is found and released by a troubled youth, and the fun (And Comedy),begins!) Munchie begins helping the young man with Bullies and other problems, using magic. I don't want to spoil it, so all I will say is this, Now it gets funny! (I wish I had a friend like Munchie when I was young!) I am going to add this one to my collection!

I've never enjoyed a movie more. It's enjoyably terrible and creepy and very fun to watch. I highly recommend this.

Hilarious movie. Great for children or adults of the stoner persuasion.

Back in those magical halycon days that are known as the "Mid-80's," a movie about a species of ghouls run amuk from late-night snacking was released to the North American public. That movie was Gremlins. It was quickly embraced by the public as a masterpiece and subsequently became a well-loved and undeniable classic. Not surprisingly, other movie companies and producers, seeing the huge success of Gremlins, were anxious to get in on the action and "munch" a piece of the lucrative cinematic pie. A whole slew of movies about small, terrifying, bloodthirsty, yet cute, cuddly critters inundated the public. The most popular of these was Ghoulies--like Gremlins, a trilogy. Until 1992, Hollywood and the public mistakenly thought that this genre was dead. But then came Munchie, which set movie-making special effects back at least twenty-years. In many ways, Munchie was both a spring-board for the actors involved and a coup d' grace. As you may already know, this was Jennifer Love Hewitt's first movie. And it may have been Loni Anderson's last. After Munchie, not even network televsion was willing to cast Amderson in a saturday night made-for-tv flick. Dom Deloise, who lent his fresh wit and unmistakeable voice to Munchie, was little affected in the way of his carrer. It seemed that he was too far removed from the American public's mind. After all, he hadn't appeared to a mass-audience since he occupied one of the squares on Hollywood Squares. That was some time ago. I don't believe that, at the time of its release, the public was ready for Munchie. Despite its painfully obvious influences, in many ways it was ahead of its time.Read more ›
