  • ‘Monsters University’ Review

    Monsters University proves to be as spiritually-uplifting and pleasant as Monsters, Inc., but isn’t equally strong as a creative accomplishment – and might not be as well-remembered in the long run.

Monsters University, Pixar Animation Studios’ long-awaited prequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc., takes viewers back in time before James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) and Michael “Mike” Wazowski (Billy Crystal) formed the most successful “scarer” team in Monsters, Inc. history. The film chronicles the pair’s Monsters University origins, where 18-year old Sulley and Mike first meet and become competitive rivals. However, as the two monsters go one eyed head-to-furry head, a larger dilemma forces them together – forging a lifelong friendship and setting the stage for their future adventures.
