After exploring the worlds of toys and bugs in the two Toy Story films and A Bug's Life, the award-winning computer animation company Pixar delves into the realm of monsters with its fourth feature. Hulking, blue-furred behemoth James P. "Sully" Sullivan (John Goodman) and his one-eyed assistant Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) are employed by Monsters, Inc., a scream processing factory.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's in the visuals that 'Monsters Inc' comes to life, from the jazzy, Norman McLaren influenced opening to the hilarious, shakycam amateur-dramatic recap over the closing credits."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"If history is any guide, you and your family - whether young or old - will probably want to see "Monsters University" over and over."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Remains as wonderful and remarkably charming as it was when it was first released."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"While nippers will love the colourful creatures and their slapstick antics, grown-ups will find less humour and layers than in the likes of Toy Story, meaning less overall appeal as a result."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"Monsters displays wonderful imagination which makes it worth reliving in an extra dimension - particularly the energetic chase scene along a conveyor belt of doors."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"It may be harder nowadays to dazzle audiences with fancy visual effects, but Monsters, Inc. 3D proves that smart, imaginative storytelling still does the trick every time."
‑ Stephan Lee, Entertainment Weekly
"The movie itself stands up well, even from an adult, two-dimensional perspective."
‑ Rob Salem, Toronto Star
"[A] fixedly sweet bedtime story and exercise in imaginative possibility."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"[I] really don't see the point of paying extra for children under eight. Their eyes are still developing, their noses are still small for slippery glasses, and... isn't a trip to the pictures enough for them in any case?"
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Pixar's soaringly lovely fourth feature ..."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Most of the charm of "Monsters Inc." comes from its vocal cast."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Its reassuring message is more relevant than ever."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"...the movie becomes a giddy, kiddie inversion of time and space."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"If anything, it improves with age."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"[An] exciting, imaginative and very likable adventure."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
