A NICE LITTLE MADE FOR TV CHRISTMAS MOVIE

"Faring a little better than Edward Herrmann, but still no Fred Gwynne. Then again who ever could be? Sam MacMurray turns out a heartwarming childlike performance as he tries to bring the meaning and spirit of Christmas to his family. Especially Eddie. I will be picking this one up. And I hope they'll release the predecessor HERE COME THE MUNSTERS also. You know and I know nothing can ever come close to the original series. But at least their hearts are in the right place."

"My son loves the origninal Munsters - and I ordered this just for fun. I knew it was not the original cast, but I still had reasonable hopes. This was very disappointing. While the actors did a good job of filling their roles - the story was much edgier than any other Munster show I have seen. Santas elves were portrayed as selfish little horny brats, there were several instances of inappropriate innuendo, and there was foul language. Had I known I would not have bought it for my son. I dont think the original cast would have approved of what was done - I know I didnt."
Not Flawless, But An Enjoyable Movie

"Sam McMurray as Herman is likable (looking and acting alot like Fred Gwynne), although he is a little less energetic than Gwynne, who really threw himself into the role of Herman Munster. The jokes and plot resemble the old TV show, which is a good thing. The only cast member that doesn't really seem right for the part is Sandy Baron is Grandpa. He doesn't seem endearing and is stiff in the role. If they were to recast Grandpa and take out the few "off-color" jokes, this would be an above-par movie. As it turned out, the movie is still recommended and should be recognized for staying true to the original Munsters for the most part. None of the Munsters re-makes have equaled the original 1960s TV series, but it seems that there is a fondness for the original show in this movie. It doesn't feel like the filmmakers are just "cashing in" on the Munsters franchise, it feels like they are Munster fans too."
Munsters + Christmas is a great deal!

"I love the Munsters and having them "drop in" for Christmas isn't a bad way to celebrate. Although this movie is not hosting the original cast it is still worth the time, money, and the laughs. Grab a chair, some popcorn, and a snuggly monster to sit by the fireplace with you, and enjoy ringing in the holiday spirits with the Munsters!"
