Don't feed them after midnight

Two years after E.T., Steven Spielberg gave it a mischievous sibling in Joe Dante’s anarchic creature feature, a subversive parable on the dangers of irresponsible pet care that doubles as an antidote to small-town Americana and Yuletide sentimentality.

Built around a cutesy furball that spawns an army of uncontrollable ids when allowed to get wet, it’s as much a Freudian nightmare as a celebration of monsters behaving badly.

More than either, it’s a treat for movie buffs, Dante peppering it with filmmaker cameos, cartoonish slapstick and satirical swipes at Hollywood classics from yesteryear.

      TF, if you insist on reviewing old films, at least have the decency to give them an indepth analysis it deserves. You can go on for paragraphs about some old nonsense that came out last week, but with the classics you only give them lip service.
