You Won't Believe Your Eye!|From the creators of Toy Story.
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!

Editor's Note
Intelligent, funny, adorable, and beautifully animated, MONSTERS, INC. will delight fans of SHREK and TOY STORY, while drawing a new audience of curious, kid-friendly viewers. Billy Crystal and John Goodman make a fiercely funny comedic team as job partners and best friends, Mike (Crystal)--a little green guy with one huge eyeball, and Sulley (Goodman)--a big purple and blue fuzzy guy with dinosaur spikes down his back. Mike and Sully work at MONSTERS, INC., a gigantic corporation that captures the screams of little children and turns them into energy. To make the children scream, the monsters must enter each child's bedroom through the closet door, then deliver a frightening affront. The only problem is, kids aren't scared anymore. And because of this problem, Monsters, Inc. is in a jam. But when one little girl, Boo (Mary Gibbs), follows Sully through her closet door and into the factory, she brings an even more dire issue to the fore: the monsters are actually terrified of children. From Pixar Animation Studios, MONSTERS, INC. is an exciting adventure with a sweet, happy ending.

Both the DVD and VHS releases include the animated short FOR THE BIRDS and a home video exclusive performance of "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me" created by Mike Wazowski.

Expert Review Monsters, Inc. - DVD Review
By: Christopher Null filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 10/30/2009 11:42 PM
The Pixar boys were at again with Monsters, Inc. taking their computer-animation talents from toys and insects to the magical world of monsters. Magical indeed -- the way it works is that all those monsters that hide in the closet and scare little kids only do so because they have to -- they use the screams as energy to power Monstropolis, which exists just on the other side of every kid's bedroom closet door in the world. And wouldn't you know it if Monstropolis wasn't having a power shortage because kids these days just don't scare as easily....read the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...There hasn't been a film in years to use creative energy as efficiently as MONSTERS, INC.; this is one clean-burning fuel engine that doesn't waste a joke or a thought..." 11/02/2001 p.E17

USA Today
"...This is a standout pleasure trip for preschoolers up through the early grades....The movie is as visually inventive as its Pixar predecessors..." 11/02/2001 p.7E

Entertainment Weekly
"...MONSTERS, INC. has got that swing, that zippity, multilevel awareness of kids'-eye sensibilities and adult-pitched humor..." 11/09/2001 p.82

Box Office
"...Richly original....A story that blends humor, pathos and action into a backdrop as creative as any classic fairytale..." 01/01/2002 p.62

Sight and Sound
"...Beautifully rendered....The alternative universe it portrays has an insulated quality that gives the movie much of its escapist charm..." 02/01/2002 p.54

Total Film
"...Flawlessly animated, MONSTERS, INC. glows with loving care and attention....The humour works as part of a thumpingly good narrative..." 03/01/2002 p.96

Chicago Sun-Times
"...MONSTERS, INC. is cheerful, high-energy fun, and like the other Pixar movies, has a running supply of gags and references aimed at grownups..." 11/02/2001 p.29

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
...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... - Roger Ebert
