Ending
Young Max spends most of his home life alone with his imagination (his mom is dating some guy and his sister mostly ignores him). After causing a scene demanding dinner, he runs from the house, hops into a sailboat (like his toy boat) at a lake he happens across, and finds himself passing through a storm and into a strange island. There, he finds a group of monsters (the Wild Things), smashes thing a bit and then earns their respect when he claims to be a king from another place; the one Thing, Carol, crowns Max with a crown they apparently ate. He helps them make a large fort, but when Max suggests a dirt clod war (similar to the snowball fight that went poorly for Max in the real world), things get heated. One of the others realizes Max wasn't a king, but he promises to keep it a secret from Carol. Max tries to build a secret room in the fort, which upsets Carol (he wants no secrets in the group's home), and that night Carol tries to destroy the fort, given it's drifted from how he dreamed of the place. They all ask Max to use his claimed magical powers to make everyone happy, but he can't, and they all realize he's not a king. Carol gets depressed, Max realizes he didn't make things any better for the Things, and is ready to return home. Max tries to make peace with Carol, can't find him, and prepares to leave by the same sailboat. Max heads out, Carol arrives, and can only howl a goodbye to Max, who howls back; the other Things howl, too. Max runs home, gets a hug from mom, and is glad he's back. Moving film reel
