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.

In this mind thrilling adventure through the underworld; a boy named Brian gets challenged to sleep in his brother’s room where there is a so called monster. Brian gets so worked up trying to catch the monster he makes a trap. When Brian catches him, he convinces him to go to the underworld with him. In the underworld he meets some funky and radical monsters. After some cool adventures Brian’s brother gets kidnapped by the evil ruler of the underworld. Brian and his friends save him by using one power that can kill the monsters, but you have to find this power out by watching the movie.

COMPARISON: I would compare this movie to Harry and the Henderson’s.
• ACTOR/ACTRESSES: Brian Stevenson – Fred Savage
• Maurice – Howie Mandel
Their performance was amazing.
THE GOOD: It’s one of those movies that you can watch over and over again, it won’t get boring, and if you by it you will never regret your decision. The range of age is from 5-unlimited in my opinion.
THE BAD: It could be frightening for some younger viewers.
THE UGLY: The visual effects weren’t the best I’ve seen but made the monsters look realistic.

I watched this movie as a kid (it was my favorite). I'm 29 now and it's still my favorite. It's so funny and cute you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it! I love all the different little monsters through out and I love the friendship that they end up having. Great movie!! :)

This movie is apart of my child hood! And I bought this movie for my kids to have a piece of my child hood. They like it too. Kids around 7 years old and older. it's a good movie for that age range. Kids younger don't get 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.
