Disney Pixar’s Monsters University opens TODAY in theaters! Parker and I got a chance to see the movie early so I thought it would be fun for him to give you his review of the film! (He’s 10)
First here’s a bit about the movie:
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer– and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.
I (as an adult and a Mom) thought the movie was great! It definitely had a different feel than Monster’s Inc both in the scaring (I felt like you were more involved in the scaring instead of watching it this time) and in the lessons learned. I LOVED grade school Mike (so cute) and the issues that Mike and Sulley faced during college. I think it was definitely appropriate for all ages and think kids will love it as much as adults! It was fun seeing how Mike and Sulley’s relationship formed to make it what it was in Monsters Inc.
I loved the animated shorts before the films almost as much as I love the film I am there to see in the first place (and this one was no exception – wonderfully done and so cute)! The short this time is called The Blue Umbrella
Now on to Parker’s review:
Disney Pixar’s Monsters University was really funny and entertaining. It ranks up with some of my favorite Disney Pixar movies. There are a lot of funny parts. My favorite part was in the library. I think everyone will enjoy this movie no matter what age they are. My favorite new character was Art. I liked how it showed them when they were in college and they made it so different from Monsters Inc.
Who is excited to see this movie?!
