Movie Info

Ever since he was a kid monster, Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) has dreamed of becoming a Scarer. To make his dream a reality, he enrolls at Monsters University. During his first semester, he meets Sulley (John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. Sulley and Mike engage in a fierce rivalry that ultimately gets them both kicked out of MU's elite Scare Program. To make things right, Mike and Sulley -- along with a bunch of misfit monsters -- will have to learn to work together.

    A vaguely amusing sequel!

    It may fall into old and tired cliches at times, but Monsters University still keeps the Pixar charm with fun new characters, funny and witty dialogue and a surprisingly poignant ending.

    I thought this cash grabber gave a little bit back. It was a good show. Gives a lot of hope to those college viewers out there too. Completely captures the feel of college academia in a family film, which is fine since the kids that watched the original are now probably in College. The story is tight. not a stitch. and the visuals Pixar delivers just get better and better.

    For the children a morality tale told cute about never giving up, perserverence. For the teens to adults crowd eplentiful (yet little) jokes referencing school days, sold with familiar, if cartoon, faces and voices. All in all not a bad way to spend some time though nowhere near the masterpiece Toy Story 3 turned out to be.
