The film has a good script and some great set pieces, as well as the usual selection of monsters that look like people you know.

It feels like a good Disney movie. It doesn't have that magical spark that we've seen in previous Pixar movies, but it's not bad. It's enjoyable.

Monsters University doesn't keep the faith, laying the creatures on thick and fast. It's not that the new crowd aren't fun, but they're a distraction

This is the ingenuity and warmth we love in Pixar movies, and long may it remain.

Mike and Sully went to college; both "scare majors." But Sully's a talented, no-work-ethic scare-scion, and little Mike's an overachiever with no scare-ability. Teamwork!

Great Randy Newman score, some inspired sight gags, and a sure way to let your 6-year-old learn early on that school is all about cliques, and that the people who tend to run in them are often jerks.

It's like an animated Revenge of the Nerds, but without the vulgarity and compromising situations.

Much to the surprise of moviegoers, the film turns out to be an anti-Disney anti-fairy tale in which you don't get special treatment even if you are special, but you can still achieve your goal even if life isn't the way you've planned.

With their prequel, Pixar creates a respectable and fun companion piece to "Monsters, Inc."

Proof that Pixar still has that intangible magic, and is able to make movies for children, adults - and the adults of tomorrow.

Animated prequel explains how polar opposite protagonists Sulley and Mike met and became the best of friends.

Animated gem Monsters, Inc was so hilariously inventive and original that it's hardly surprising that Monsters University can't quite recapture its predecessor's magic, yet it's still packed with witty dialogue, sly visual gags and boisterous action.

Pixar continues its unabated string of hits with this fascinating prequel to their celebrated "Monsters, Inc." In many ways, this film is better than its predecessor.

Animated film about monster college students competing to become the scariest one of them all.

It is essentially Revenge of the Nerds, with fur. And scales. And whatever gooey, gelatinous substance comprises the outer coating of various other oddball creatures in this crazy parallel world.

Studios don't often seem to be thinking about the ideal moviegoer, just about the maximum number of moviegoers ... Pixar is no different in that regard, but even in this relatively fallow period ... it's never stopped thinking the most of us.

Directed by Dan Scanlon, whose PIXAR association includes stints working on "Cars," "Brave" and the short film "Mater and the Ghostlights," "Monster's University" is a worthy prequel to what is arguably one of PIXAR's greatest achievements.

One day, it will be interesting to see in which order children will prefer to play the DVDs of the two Monsters' films. For now, many adults will find the new version has been 'Disneyfied' at the expense of Pixar's more poetic core values.
