    Sully and Boo's relationship has some spark, but the supporting characters are unlikable (especially Mike) and the plot is just weak. One of my least favorite Pixar movies.

    It just was as good as it could have been. Take Toy Story, Monsters Inc. just isn't as good.

    What a complete waste of time, at least for an adult. It is totally a children's movie. Yeah the animation is cool and the voices are OK and the premise is amusing -- for the first half hour. After that it's a living hell. Again, recommended for young children with simple tastes ONLY.

    Marvels of animation abound in Monsters, Inc. -- when it comes to irreverent humor and real heart, Monsters doesn't quite measure up.
  2. 80
    Confirms that despite all the technical tools at their disposal, one thing counts head and shoulders above razzle-dazzle eye candy (or anything else, for that matter): the story and characters, and Monsters, Inc. introduces worthy additions to the Pixar pantheon.
  3. But Monsters, Inc. -- directed by Pixar soldier Pete Docter, not by master digital comic John Lasseter -- turns out to be stingy on context, commentary, and the prism-ing view of pop culture that made the earlier films mint.
