Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other. "Monsters University" unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends. -- (C) Walt Disney

Pixar's ''Monsters University'' might not be as gifted as some of its other movies, but sometimes it's alright to be OK.
This minor film with major charms still deserves to have kids dragging their parents to the multiplex for one more peek at the monsters in the closet. With Pixar, familiarity breeds content.
Scanlon deals honestly and inventively with the hard reality that some talents can't be taught and some dreams remain unfulfilled.
It should be remedial school, not an institution of higher learning, for Monsters University, an alarmingly lame effort from Pixar, the Oxbridge of animation studios.
Falling squarely between the studio's classics and its decidedly lesser work, Monsters University is a solidly average Pixar effort, one that brings laughs to the kegger, but you'll be hard-pressed to remember it at the reunion in 10 years.
On the evidence of Pixar's latest cartoon, 'Monsters University,' the studio's brain trust is beginning to run thin in the ideas department.
The Pixar themes may be present and correct, but its values are sorely lacking.
It is the sheer wit and charm of Pixar's quirky, multi-coloured characters that make this cleverly conceived prequel such an enjoyable romp
It is ultimately a kids movie through and through and one I can't wait to show to my kid.
It's the perfect summer movie for kids; the monsters on campus won't scare anyone in real life...problem is they won't make you laugh much either. - See more at: http://schmoesknow.com/the-schmoes-review-of-monsters-university/#sthash.eDnbFn1k.dpuf
It's not Pixar's most innovative or clever movie by any means, but it ultimately delivers in terms of offering something to entertain everyone.
... at least it feels like they tried to take creative and thematic advantage of the opportunity here, and that's more than is true of most sequels.
Continues Pixar's tradition of hearty laughs and character rich stories, yet cannot contend with the mighty weight of high expectations brought on by its superior original.
One of the funnier films the studio has ever produced. Once upon a time, however, Pixar could also be relied upon for drawing a tear or two...[and] this is basically an animated spoof of Animal House.
Pixar's emphasis on character and story made (and could make again) worlds that we fell in love with. Monsters University - a fun, disposable watch - has taken one of these worlds and repeated it to formula.
A bright, breezy, funny and beautifully presented film that will slug it out with Despicable Me 2 for the animated hit of summer award.
The latest Pixar offering charms in an excessively familiar way that illustrates a troublesome eventuality: Pixar has lost its edge.
