Monsters, Inc. Audience Reviews

Clevercell Very disappointing...
AniInterview Sorry, this movie sucks
Pluskylang Great Film overall
Baseshment I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
venus-43937 In this loving, yet fun kid's movie, the main characters change their world through friendship, justice, and sacrifice. One of the main characters is Sullivan. Sullivan is a big, tall, furry, blue and green monster that has a loving heart for a different creator than himself. His best friend, Mike, is a short, round, all green, one-eyed fellow who only cares about himself and not the world around him. Mike drives a sports car and inspires to climb the corporate ladder. Sullivan, also referred to as Sully, walks to work, and genuinely cares about the environment and the creators being harmed by the creation of their energy supply. Mike and Sully work for Monsters, Incorporated, who power the world of Monstropolis with the screams of human children. When a child named Boo enters the monster world, a panic is created. Human children are poisonous to monsters, or so they think. A series of events happen that lead the monsters to capturing the child and realizing her laughs supply more energy than her screams. At the end of the movie, Sully and Mike take over the Monsters, Inc. and use the newly found energy source (laughs) as their only energy source. The children are no longer scared of monsters in their closet but get a laugh when monsters enter into the human world. A friendship like Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, Mater and Lightning McQueen from Cars, or even Remy and Linguini from Ratatouille, all show that true friends can overcome obstacles in life. It also shows that one outgoing friend and one conservative friend can join forces and change the world they live in for the better. Even above friendship, justice, and sacrifice, I think the overall picture is saying we need a better energy source that doesn't harm the environment. It's a long shot, but it makes sense to relate their story to ours. They go against the grain to fight for better energy sources that give them more energy in the long run.
bobby-maddox Monster's Inc. is just pure brilliance. Not only is it my favorite animated film of all time, but now its one of my favoite 3D MOVIE ever. In my opinion the jokes are screamingly (no pun intended) funny, and the dialog is one of my favorite ever. I love every single character (Mike is my favorite), and all the voice acting is superb. The animation is fantastic and the cool twist on "the monster in the closet" is fun and very clever. One of my favorite scenes is when Mike and his girlfriend Celia are on a date at Harryhausens (a restaurant in Monstropolis) and Sully comes in with Boo and unintentionally crashes their date and Boo gets loose, it's hilarious havoc, and I love every minute, and of course every other scene in Monster's Inc. Like I said before, I love this movie, it's hilarious, creative, original, featuring awesome characters, this is a great film that everyone can enjoy. Also it was one of the first movies I ever saw, so it has a special effect on me, and always will.
TheBlueHairedLawyer Much of Disney's stuff is just too hokey and childish for its own good, but Monster's Inc. provides not only a sweet and sentimental story for viewers and some comic relief for children, but for adults this timely early 2000's story offers a chilling commentary on the corruption in modern corporate culture. The animation is flawless, the voice acting is superb, characters are alive right from their facial expressions to their unique monster appearances and the story itself opens the door for a lot of complexity. Benevolent ol' Mr. Waternoose might just be a common criminal, Randall is socially awkward beneath his evil workplace jerk exterior and Mike is more selfless than Sully gives him credit for. The charming scenery of Monstropolis is intricately detailed to boot. All in all this is a terrific film and probably one of the best of 2001.
