  1. As giddy and antic as any great Warner Bros. cartoon of the 1930s and '40s -- it bears seeing more than once, if only to allow for the sight gags that play second fiddle to the plot, a rarity in animation -- but also resonant and real. In other words, it's the perfect movie.

    There hasn't been a film in years to use creative energy as efficiently as Monsters, Inc.
  3. 88
    Movies like Monsters, Inc. literally make you feel like a kid again, marveling at the joyously inventive sights before you, and that's a feat that should not be taken lightly.
  4. 80
    An unprecedented friendship between a monster and a child leads to an amazing chase scene.
  5. The movie's cutest twist is that the monsters are more scared of kids than kids are of them, because they think human children are toxic.
  6. 70
    It's a nice movie. But Disney has never learned that "nice," especially in comedy, is a negative virtue.
  7. 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.

The animation is as beautiful and vibrant as even newer animated films. One of the most original concepts for a film I have ever seen, and great voice acting make this a must-see. One of Pixar's best, and also one of all of animations best films. As will all other Pixar movies, animation is not just for children. This is a wittily funny movie for everyone. Expand
