Monster House is a 2006 computer animated and motion capture film. It was produced by Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis and written by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab.

The movie focuses on DJ Walters, a boy who believes the house across the street from him is actually a monster. When his parents go away for the weekend, he tries convincing his babysitter that there is something wrong about the house. She does not believe him, so DJ enlists the help of his best friend Chowder and Jenny, a girl selling Halloween candy (and who nearly gets eaten by the house). Together, the three of them try to destroy the monster house, along the way figuring out its secret.

Tropes used in Monster House include:


 Chowder: Oh, so it's a girl house...


 DJ: Questions?

Chowder: Yes, umm, are you nuts? I don't wanna steal drugs from my Father, I don't wanna go inside a monster, and I don't wanna die!

Jenny: I say its worth a shot.

Chowder: Yes I agree. Let's do it.


 Chowder: Whoa. Look at all these toys!

Jenny: This must be where Nebbercracker keeps his stash.

Chowder: (under breath) Heh. Stash.

    • In the scene where Elizabeth's boyfriend tackles her, he appears to be trying to "have his way with her."
    • Chowder's parents. Very subtle.

 DJ: Chowder, where are your parents?

Chowder: My dad's at the pharmacy and my mom's with her personal trainer at the movies.
