PG movies today are hard to come by, at least in my opinion (unless it’s Disney or animated). When a PG movie does come around, it’s refreshing for my family to finally be able to watch something and not have to worry about inappropriate scenes or foul language. It provides for family fun that I can feel good about (and not have to worry about). “Monsters At Large” is such a movie. It’s rated PG and fun for everyone. In fact, “Monsters At Large” is approved by the Dove Foundation for all ages (refer to their review for detailed information about the film’s content, which is very helpful for parents).
A Monsters Movie – In A Nutshell
“Monsters at Large” is about a group of kids who decide to pretend to take on monsters that are frightening the little children around town. However, what starts out as pretend becomes reality and no one knows what to believe. I won’t go into too much detail and ruin the ending for you. I will tell you that it’s a cute movie. It’s kind of a mixture of a little bit of “Ghostbusters” and “The Goonies.” It was funny. Most of us in my household laughed at various parts of the movie, especially at the scenes involving high school life. Those in my household that didn’t laugh are ones that never laugh at movies. Also, we had a 5-year-old neighbor watching it with us. The monster bothered her at first, but, by the end of the movie, she was fine with it. The monster on the cover is actually more frightening in appearance than he is in the movie. In the movie, he’s actually quite cute and quirky looking.
Actors in the movie include Mischa Barton (“The Sixth Sense”), Brooklyn Prince (“The Florida Project”), Austin St. John (“Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”), and Stephen Tobolowsky (“Groundhog Day”).
