Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Fans of the TV series which spawned it will appreciate Munster, Go Home, if for no other reason than it affords them the chance to see the settings and characters in color rather than black-and-white. And those who are truly devoted to Herman, Lily, Grandpa and the rest will undoubtedly enjoy their big screen shenanigans. However, it's likely that even the most devoted fans will admit that the movie does go on a bit too long and that perhaps it's not quite as funny as it might have been. Naturally, those who think that there is definitely a law of diminishing returns in seeing Universal-style horror figures treated as comic types and in the old "ugly is beautiful and vice versa" reversal will find Munster more than a bit much. The movie does retain the series' giddy innocence and sense of fun, although it gets stretched a bit thin, especially toward the end. And, of course, the actors here give the same performances that they do in the small screen version (the major exception being Debbie Watson, who did not play Marilyn on TV). They're supplemented by delightful character actors Hermione Gingold, John Carradine and Terry-Thomas, who all add somewhat to the fun. The screenplay is very hit-or-miss, with the latter outweighing the former, and the drag race that fills the final third is decidedly a mistake. Munster fans -- and very young children -- will enjoy it; others should give it a pass. (But then, those others most likely already know that.)
