Technical Specs


Did You Know?

In the scene where Daniel Stern is asking Fred Savage to get the monster's autograph, the tickling was improvised and Savage's reactions are genuine.

Plot holes: When Brian opens the baby's door to let the light in, his arm turns to clothes. The rest of him should have turned to clothes when he stepped into the lit hallway.

Maurice: You got your stupid remote control back. Now how about lighting a candle or something? These lights are painful.
Brian Stevenson: [studies remote] Hey, what about the batteries?
Maurice: I ate 'em for breakfast. I'd give 'em to ya right now but double A battries constipate me, ok? How bout a little later?
Brian Stevenson: That's gross.

Unforgettable childhood film

Rating: 7/10

I thought this was the coolest movie back when I was a kid, I recently watched it again after many years, I introduced it to some of the younger kids in my family and they loved it. Fred Savage and his not as great little brother, Ben really related well with kids, I really didn't care for Daniel Stern in this film and Howie Mandel was super as the monster Maurice. I recommend this to kids who would like to see a good kids film for once, I know this is out of date for todays kiddos, but worth watching over and over again as the years go by. I really miss films like this and never will forget this film.
