Movie Info

A family finds themselves on the run from danger both on earth and from outer space in this sci-fi comedy for the family. Joe Yeagher (Terry Kiser) is a plumber from Brooklyn who is placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program after testifying in court against some wise guys from the neighborhood. Joe, his wife Marilyn (Joanne Baron), and their kids Charlie (David Wagner) and Dena (Leigh Ann Orsi) are moved to Cactus Flats, a small town in Arizona, one step ahead of Mafia hitmen Babe (Nino Surdo) and Curley (Leonardo Vincent Surdo). Lonely in their new town, Charlie and Dena visit a local pet shop run by Mr. and Mrs. Zimm (Jeff Mitchalski and Jane Morris), where the kids discover a number of strange and wonderful animals for sale. But they soon discover that the Zimms and their critters are all visitors from another planet, and that the humanoid aliens plan to take the Earth children back to their planet and sell them as pets. Can the alien animals and FBI keep Charlie and Dena safe?

Audience Reviews for Pet Shop

Basically the love child of E.T. and Prehysteria. Fans of either would probably find this entertaining. The animals were so weird and it's just a weird movie period, but what do you expect? It's almost like an Invasion of the BodySnatchers for tweens.
