Performance

Must admit that between Monsters, Inc. and Shrek it was a close call which I liked better. I would say that Shrek was the right choice for the Oscar. Nevertheless, I loved this movie through and through. Have seen it twice and loved it more the second time. It is refreshing to see a movie that is clean and good fun and still enjoy. Too many movies seem to end in a disappointment but this one ended the way you wanted it to. It certainly is not on the same planet with a Steven Segal kick-butt type movie but this is for a different audience for sure - and I am not ashamed to say I liked every minute of it - so take that Rambo!

-Anonymous quote

This movie has often been compared to Shrek because of the Oscar race, but you couldn't compare the two otherwise. Monsters, Inc. is a wonderful, upbeat movie that children will love and parents will adore. This movie doesn't have to be edgy or gross to capture the attention of it's audience. Just being light hearted and funny keeps this movie entertaining throughout. I would recommend it to anyone!

Product Overview

Since the very first bedtime, children around the world have known that once their parents tuck them into bed and shut off the light, monsters lie waiting behind closet doors, ready to emerge. But what they don't realize is that these monsters scare children because it's their job.

Monsters, Inc. is the largest scream processing factory in the monter world. The key to this operation is a group of elite Kid Scarers. One of the top Scarers is James E. Sullivan, AKA Sulley (John Goodman), a laid back monster with blue fur and purple spots. His Scare Assistant - also his best friend and roommate - is Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal), a green fiesty little one-eye monster.

Since children are considered a threat to monsters, it is absolutely forbidden for anything from the human world to cross into the monster world - even a stray sock alerts a task force. But one night after work, Sulley accidentally lets in a little human girl!

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review ...stars like Goodman, Crystal, Coburn, Buscemi and Bonnie Hunt bring a dimension to the film that both borrows from their screen personas and kids them. As for the invaluable Tilly, she has the only voice that has ever made me think simultaneously of Mae West and Slim Pickens... Monsters, Inc. is cheerful, high-energy fun...
