Audience Reviews for Monsters, Inc.

    While it's concept is nothing new, Monsters, Inc. still manages to be a fun and very clever take on the concept of monsters - with a storyline that is both emotionally charged and incredibly funny at the same time.

    One of the best of the Pixar line up! Monster's Inc is funny, smart, charming and a great film to pop in every once in a while!

    Basically just a great kind of a world simulator only filled by friendly monsters scaring us to get to the box office.

    Pixar comes up short in Monsters, Inc., an imaginative but overly sanitized kid film. When a child accidentally crosses over to the monster world, best friends Sulley and Mike find her and attempt to return her back to the human world before a panic sweeps Monstropolis. Though the idea of a Monsters, Inc., a company that collects children's scares as a source of energy, is incredibly interesting, Pixar veers away from it and instead focuses on the shenanigans of chasing around a toddler. Additionally, the message of the film is extremely preachy and does so at the expense of the storytelling. Still, John Goodman and Billy Crystal deliver the comedy especially well and elevate the material. There's some fun and excitement to Monsters, Inc., but it's trying too hard to be cute and goofy.
