Monsters, Inc.

The secret lives of monsters that hide in kids bedrooms at night has been explored before, but Pixar Animation keeps coming up with new ways of keeping the plots fresh.

It shows the softer sides of the big scary monsters, with just enough savvy to keep adults engaged.

There's an enjoyable cartoon at the beginning of this film called For the Birds--it's the funniest five minutes of laughs I've seen in a long while.

This is a really good, fun flick to treat the whole family to.

Monsters, Inc. is about two working-class guys doing what they do best, scaring the dickens out of young children.

And they do it without any cutesy songs.

What? you say. Don't worry, there will be plenty of product tie-ins before Christmas.

Slick, funny, and very entertaining.

Monsters, Inc. is a computer-animation buddy movie built around the star power of its celebrity voices, and a little girl called Boo, who is voiced by a real five year-old charmer named Mary Gibbs, who's the daughter of Pixar story artist Rob Gibbs.

The picture is funny and sweet enough to delight kids and inventive enough to satisfy adults.

This is a light, cute bedtime story about the secret life of the monsters in every kid's closet. The film cleverly finds a way to tell children there's no reason to be afraid of the dark.
