The university movies are a dime a dozen. A bit formulaic. The monsters have to prove themselves to be scare worthy. It's a prequel so the monsters had not yet found that laughter was paying more. Whatever... it's watchable and the animations are really getting great. Textures and all.

A really thrilling prequel, always funny and exciting, that takes the clichéd premise of overcoming our own limits and turns it into endless fun - and it will leave you sure that Pixar is finally back on track after its two previous weak, forgettable entries.

Monsters University uses the familiar conventional plot formula used for the sports and games genre, making it less exciting and energetic than the original, much better Monsters Inc.

Exactly what you'd expect it to be: a colorful dip into nostalgia, with little surprises and college humor around characters you already love.

A great prequel to Monsters INC. Full of lovable characters, and really shows how Mikes life started.

10/29/2016: Not quite as good as the original, but still pretty good!

Monsters University was a fun movie that I think does have the usual Pixar life lesson and promotes themes like friendship and self belief while encouraging you to go further than anyone expects and to prove people wrong. Most of the jokes are very funny but only on the first (maybe second occasion) and the voice acting and chemistry from Crystal and Goodman is superb as you'd expect. Solid.

Engaging and entertaining prequel to "Monsters, Inc."

Not as good as the first one but a very creative movie that I believe is underrated

Monsters University is a hilarious movie. the film in my opinion couldn't follow up to the original 2001 film. but still a funny movie. Great for all ages

I think this movie was panned unjustifiably. It's not their best film, but it's miles ahead of the previous two and is even better than some of their "golden era" films. It does a good job of giving origin story to Mike and Sully (and a couple other MI favorites) and delivers perhaps one of the best last thirds in any Pixar movie. Some of the college humor is corny I'll admit, but I don't think it ruined the movie by any stretch.

It may not be as original or as thought provoking as other animated films, but Monsters University is still 5 star entertainment which may be typical in story it does it to the highest quality, with its marketing being its only major downfall; promoting too many golden moments of the film

Not as heartfelt as the original, but probably more entertaining. Great movie. Bring on #3!

Monsters University is a cute film. It is about the look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at Monsters University. John Goodman and Billy Crystal give terrific performance as their respective characters. The screenplay is well written. Dan Scanlon did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the adventure and drama. Monsters University is a must see.
