A monster of a movie

Made for the sci fi comedy loving family crowd. The cartoony animation makes it looks like an old school sci fi cartoon. It is a big monster movie so there are lots of destruction. There are still lots of Monsters Vs Aliens specials to spend your money on with your Amazon and other HD streaming services.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
