What if a monster truck was actually a truck with a monster powering it? That’s the premise of Monster Trucks, and if you think it sounds like something from a four-year-old’s fertile mind then bingo. It was Paramount president Adam Goodman’s kid and, well, Goodman no longer works at Paramount… The idea makes for a delightfully dumb-fun adventure though, whereby teenaged Tripp (Lucas Till) discovers what’s been stealing the town’s oil – it’s the choice tipple of a monster which suggests that Flipper and The Little Mermaid’s Ursula may have once bumped uglies. Naming him ‘Creech’ (as in ‘creature’), the unlikely pair – and truck – take on big oil to save a very special habitat.
