A great portrayal of "Munsterness," with the wonderful comedic team of Gwynne and Lewis.
16 December 2000 | by phoebemunsterSee all my reviews

I wrote this review 16 years ago as a freshman in high school, so please forgive me. I just re- found it while looking at my profile for the first time in years, but I thought I'd leave it up for fun. I still find the movie mildly amusing, but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone but dedicated fans of the Munsters (and even they might not like it).

-------- Original review: This movie has one of the cheesiest plots I have seen. For me, that's what makes it so awesome! Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis are very good at what they achieved in the original Munsters series. While there was less slapstick, they still worked wonderfully together "comedically." I wish Yvonne De Carlo, as Lily, would have had more plot involvement. She showed that she could do comedy in the original series, but it was mostly wasted in this movie. This movie also stars the great Sid Caesar, but sadly he doesn't have any interaction with Gwynne and Lewis. I think some better work could have come out of that.
