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. It seems that the denizens of their realm thrive on the screams of kids spooked by monsters lurking under their beds and in their closets. It's the job of Sully, Mike, and their co-workers, including sarcastic Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi), crab-like CEO Henry J. Waternoose (James Coburn), and lovely snake-headed receptionist Celia (Jennifer Tilly) to keep the frights flowing. When Sully and Mike are followed back into the monster world by a very unafraid little human girl named Boo (Mary Gibbs), they are exiled to her universe, where they discover that such a modern-day mythological specimen as the Abominable Snowman is a fellow refugee.

When I first went out to see this movie, I could hardly wait for it to come out. When we got it, we watched it nonstop. I watch it when I come home from school, and every Friday and Saturday night. Sulley, Mike, Randall and cast rock!

This was hands down THE FUNNIEST MOVIE OF 2001. Give yourself a great gift and BUY IT NOW!!! You will not be sorry you did. I LOVE IT!!!!!!! Shrek, shmeck...

I love this movie everytime I watch it! I love the story of the 'top scarer' in a big industry in the town of Monstropolis showing a softer side to a little girl. This story shows how important love and friendship truly are and how you can accomplish anything when you have your friends by your side. I enjoyed watching how Sully and his partner and friend Mike try to think of ways to get rid of Boo. I loved the way Boo made her way into the hearts of Mike and especially Sully and she sure made her way into my heart. I will cherish this movie for years to come!

I saw this movie with my sister-in-law and we both loved it!! The animation is spectacular and it is so funny as well as heartwarming. I just fell in love with the little girl Boo. As soon as it came out on video I knew I had to have it for my collection. I told my husband I was buying it for our 20 mos old son but I know I will be getting alot of enjoyment out of it as well!! The added features and outtakes are hilarious!! I would recommend this movie to everyone!!

The movie is based on Monsters from the closets that make a living in making children scream for energy in their own city. Yet, even though they scare kids, they are also afraid of the children themselves, making their job very difficult. This movie is one of the greatest Disney movies around and is a must see; it has won many awards for creativity and graphics. If you are a Disney fan and enjoyed movies like ''The Toy Story'' or ''Shrek'', then you will fall in love with this one. It is very funny, and is good for anyone at any age.

Without question, this is the finest animated film in my considerable collection. Indeed, I would watch this in preference to most of Hollywood's dire output. I have read dozens of reviews of this film, some questioning the characters' motives etc. but for me this is a masterpiece. I have seen and own all of the titles often mentioned in the same breath such as as Finding Nemo, Ice Age, A Shark's Tale, A Bug's Life, Happy Feet, Toy Story etc. but for me, none have that ineffable beauty of dialogue and action as Monsters Inc. Others, such as Ice Age (first one) and Finding Nemo are very, very good but none can touch the sublime, Monsters Inc. I am particularly fond of the soundtrack, which, in places, especially Sully and Mike's walk to work, is very Wagnerian and utterly beautiful.

Monsters Inc., starring the hilarious John Goodman and the equally hilarious Billy Crystal, is the story of James P. Sullivan (Sully) and his one-eyed pal, Mike Wazoski. One day, Sully accidentally lets a child, the most 'toxic, vile thing known to monsters' into the monster world. It is up to them to return the child, Boo, back home before she is discovered. I was amazed by the design of this film. The environment is incredibly crafted and the characters are unique and original. Another amazing part was Sully's fur, which moves like real animal fur with wind and movements. The music is catchy and upbeat, the plot is deep and competely original, and all the characters are loveable. Pixar and Disney hit the nail on the head with this classic. It is my favorite animated film of all time.
