This is one of the most underrated comedies of the past 10 years. I love this movie. It ranks just under Shawn of the Dead.
My toy shop once had a booth at a horrible show that had a few radical human beings in the celebrity area; Danny Hicks was one of them.
I heard people didn't like this movie but its Spielberg, kids and monsters; what could go wrong? Plenty, plenty could go wrong and some does but some goes right. I'd say you should get out there and watch this on a Saturday night in.
