YMMV / Little Monsters

  • Designated Hero: Brian (though he eventually has a Heel Realization), as Something Awful had noted in its review:
    reviewer: (Brian) finds himself being blamed for things he hasn't done. However, as we get to know Brian, we discover that there are tons of things he does that he actually should be getting in trouble for, so I figure it's about even.
    • The Nostalgia Critic also took Brian to task for being way too into Maurice's vicious pranks in his review:
      Maurice: (on Brian worrying about his crush not liking him) Why would she hate you, buddy?
      NC: Oh I don't know, maybe because YOU'RE AWFUL!
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Monsters live in a world where it's their job to scare human children? Every child's room contains a portal to the monster world? At one point, the friendly blue horned monster scares his human friend and questions his job? Monsters, Inc., is that you?
  • Nightmare Fuel: The movie is relatively free of scary imagery, right up until the scene where Snik suddenly pulls a kid's head off his shoulders and tosses it in a basket.
    • The special award for this goes to Boy, the leader of the monsters. His human child form is creepy and unsettling all by itself but when his face comes off... *shudders*
  • One-Scene Wonder: Boy, the leader of the monsters, appears in the film at the last minute, but is one of the most memorable parts of it all the same due to how damn creepy he is.
  • Special Effect Failure:
    • The CG shooting stars occasionally flying around the monster world, which were added to try to make it look otherworldly, but failing.
      • It appears to be implied near the end (after they kill Snik) that the shooting stars are either the souls of the monsters or their energy.
    • Snik's wig slightly sliding up his head in one scene.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Imagine if Monsters, Inc. were a live-action 80s films with A-list celebrities, that badly suffered from a case of severe uncomfortable pranks and humor.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Swearing, gory deaths, and verbal abuse. You know, for kids!
