Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Monsters, Inc..
New Times (L.A.) - 10/10 by Robert WilonskyAs 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.
Rolling Stone - 10/10 by Peter TraversIt's the Pixar animators who keep grown-ups as riveted as the kids with visual marvels that dazzle and delight.
Big Hollywood - 10/10 by John HanlonRemains as wonderful and remarkably charming as it was when it was first released.
L.A. Weekly - 10/10 by Hazel-Dawn DumpertThe story's charming, the set pieces are wildly inventive, and even the throwaway one-liners, about everything from movie-animation pioneer Ray Harryhausen to the old Oscar Meyer jingle, are hilarious.
Time Out - 10/10 by Tom HuddlestonIt's in the visuals that 'Monsters Inc' comes to life, from the jazzy, Norman McLaren influenced opening to the hilarious, shakycam amateur-dramatic recap over the closing credits.
Miami Herald - 9/10 by Rene RodriguezMovies 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.
New York Post - 9/10 by Lou LumenickSmart, funny and ingeniously detailed with terrific vocal teamwork.
Baltimore Sun - 9/10 by Michael SragowThe movie may not be perfect, but it's jam-packed with goodies -- like a breakfast cereal fun-pack with a prize on every box-top.
Antagony & Ecstasy - 9/10 by Tim Brayton[A] fixedly sweet bedtime story and exercise in imaginative possibility.
Slant Magazine - 9/10 by Nick McCarthyNot even the opportunistic 3D-ification can squander the pure delight of the film's meticulously detailed world of ragtag creatures.
Wall Street Journal - 9/10 by Joe MorgensternWho doesn't need what this movie has to give?
