From Nina:  Actually, the funniest device in the movie was every time the geeky lead main male character took off his glasses, he became cute and everyone fell in love with him - including the monster.
Frank Ashmore  
"I don't think it's ever been explained where this monster comes from but he has a thing about closets.  He hides in them.  There's a real thin line which runs through this story, though.  For instance, the monster takes off for San Francisco and in the end, rather than capturing the leading lady, he . . . well, you'll see.  They don't hammer you over the head with it but it's cute." ( from 'The V-Files')

Comments: From the Webmaster:  Thanks to Albert on Vsitters, I was able to catch the second episode when it was rerun.  Frank's part (as the husband of a babysitter accused of killing her charge) is very small.  He had only a few lines and has put on a bit of weight.  Did a fine job though.
