A Monsterous Holiday


Andy is a young scientist who can’t keep from blowing things up.
When his dad sticks him on the football team to keep him out of
trouble, he’s soon miserable… and sore. Determined to win the
science fair, which is the same day as the Halloween football
game, he ditches practice and ends up at the house of Doctor Frankenstein. There he
encounters Frankenstein’s monster, who is young, strong, and green. He prefers the name
“Frank” and loves football. Frank and Andy come up with a scheme—Frank will trade places
with Andy on the team, while Andy uses the doctor’s lab under Frank’s guidance. The only
problem is that Andy ends up creating a real monster that threatens to destroy the town.
It’s up to Frank and Andy to work together and save the day!

Dove Review

This spooky animated movie will put you in the mood for Halloween. It features terrific voice work from Drake Bell (Andy), Sean Astin (Spencer), Brooke Shields (Betsy) and Jon Heder as Frankenstein’s monster.

The animation is colorful, the theme of a fun Halloween is delightful, and the story of a son making his dad proud is wonderful. The movie takes place in Transylvania, Pennsylvania. Andy wants to prove just how good a scientist he is and when he gets a chance to show that a teen monster named Frankenstein can play football, he just might succeed.

We are pleased to award this entertaining fright-filled-movie our Dove Seal for all ages. Enjoy some wholesome and fantastic fun.
