    A ton of fun, Monsters vs. Aliens is both a hilarious parody and homage to the monster movies of old while also giving us a lighthearted and enjoyable tale about acceptance - even if it appeals more to kids then adults.

    It returns the idea for something never been done a long time ago, but clearly it wasn't what I wanted but it still works anyways.

    DreamWorks Animation presents the ultimate no-holds-barred contest in Monsters vs. Aliens. The story follows a group of monsters hidden away at a top secret military base who get a chance at freedom when the U.S. government calls upon them to stop a giant alien robot that's attacking San Francisco. With the voice talents of Reese Witherspoon, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen, and Kiefer Sutherland, the cast is pretty impressive. However, the characters are a little cartoony and played more for laughs than storytelling. But this works for the style of comedy that the film is going for, and the jokes are rather good; mixing parody and slapstick quite well. Though it tends to be a little silly at times, Monsters vs. Aliens is a brawl not to be missed.

    As exciting as the 1st monsters animation plus a wide spectrum of celebrity voices.
