Funny and cool. Another movie I can't stop watching.

Not as great as the original, but just funny and endearing enough to be worthwhile.

Mike Wazowski y James Sullivan, los adorables monstruos de Monsters Inc. regresan en una precuela divertida. En esta ocasión ambos asistirán a la Universidad para formarse como 'asustadores', pero pronto se verán relegados en el grupo de 'perdedores' y aunque al principio no son amigos, deberán unirse para vencer las dificultades. La película tiende a caer en los clichés propios de las comedias universitarias norteamericanas, pero aún así mantiene su encanto y diversión

Didn't need it. And the continuity is off. C'mon, Pixar. It was one of the first lines in the first one; "You've been jealous of my good looks since the FOURTH GRADE, pal."

A clichéd money grab movie which nobody ever asked for.

Parfois drôle, souvent plate, jamais aussi bon que Monsters inc. Chou Pixar.

In 2001s 'Monsters, Inc', Sully and Wazowski are the best of friends, who work at the prestigious Monster, Inc of the title collecting the screams of children that powers their world.

That's not the case in this prequel, which actually goes back to how they first met, at the 'Monsters University' of the title. Of course, they are immediately rivals, with this story detailing how they came to be the best of friends (along with the usual moral lesson along the way) ...

Personally, I felt that this wasn't quite as good as the original, but it was better than some of Pixar's other more recent outputs.

Loved this. Thought it was better than the original Monsters Inc and it had a good message to kids, never give up on your dreams no matter what others tell you you can't do

Okish prequel to Monsters Inc. Bit boring at times. Snail post credits missed all the classes of the year arriving in summer!

Wonderful entertainment.
Schooling monsters was ever so much fun.
Nice chance to spot the future monsters in the background.

This is a prequel, the ending has been set. Just when I thought they have painted themselves in a corner. Boom, they made it fresh again. It was the ending and credit scene that plused it so much more. well done.

Cute and colourful.. However, it's mainly aimed at kids and the jokes, in my opinion for adults, fall flat.. Doesn't live up to Monsters Inc.

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.
October 31, 2016
Exactly what you'd expect it to be: a colorful dip into nostalgia, with little surprises and college humor around characters you already love.
½ October 30, 2016
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!
October 25, 2016
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.
