For a movie that was made for children, there were TOO MANY previews (my 5 yr old was bored before the animated short started) THEN the animated short, The Blue Umbrella, was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG!!!! Pixar needs to take into consideration their target audience and cater to them. Once the movie started, my little one really liked it. It was just getting to that point. I would say Rent it or Dollar Theater. I would NOT pay to see it in 3D (a ploy to make more $$$)

From the very beginning this movie had me captured. It's great for any age; several in the theater were cheering and clapping at the great parts and I didn't see a person in there under 15 years old. It easily made my top 5 favorite movies and I highly recommend everyone go see it!

Took my children and two others. There were a total of nine, five adults. All of us enjoyed the movie. There is a huge variety of different and new monsters in this movie. We were amazed at the creativity of the various characters. The plot is very cute, but reminded us of the old "Revenge of the Nerds" underdog storyline. Still, very unique and different. The kids were mesmerized and had big laughs with some of the key scenes. Helen Mirren does the voice of the Dean of Monsters University. She is by far the scariest monster and it was great hearing her do a project with leviety. Billy Chrystal and John Goodman will always be Mike and Sully! If you have children that have not seen the first Monsters, Inc. it won't be an issue. The movie stands alone.

Took my daughter to see Monsters University last night and I thought it was simply ok. Not a bad movie if you're just looking to do something for a family night. I think I was more impressed with Monster's University than my daughter.

EXTREMELY GREAT FAMILY FILM - EVEN FOR THOSE WHO DON'T USUALLY LIKE KID MOVIES. IT WAS WELL THOUGHT OUT AND A GREAT MESSAGE FOR ALL AGES. I'M GLAD MY SON MADE ME GO.
