Too predictable! Too overrated!

Last time we saw Billy Crystal in a movie, it was 2012's Parental Guidance, which was not great. So let's see if MU brings the actor back on his feet. To be honest, I was quite surprised at how predictable the movie was. I literally predicted the entire movie. Monsters University also loses points for being super boring until the third act (Much like Oz the Great and Powerful.) Not only that, but the story and characters are so cliched. However, the animation is good (Surprise, surprise) and the voice acting is good, and the humor works, and as a result, that is what saves the movie from being bad. For me, this is one of those visuals over writing movies, which there have been A LOT of those this year. Anyone who knows me knows that I haven't liked much of Pixar's recent films, starting with Toy Story 3 (I know, shocking.) Even if the humor works, the visuals are good, and the acting works, it's just okay. Critic Eric Kohn stated that "Pixar has lost it's edge." Unfortunately, I agree

It is definitely important to watch Monsters inc. so that you can gt some of the jokes in MU. You learn why Randall hates Sully and Mike, and how they got into the Scaring Business. This movie is great for all ages and just AWESOME!!!!!!! Well done Pixar! The Short before was really amazing as well it almost looked real. I'm pretty sure that was the work of Pixar Vancouver, I loved it. For those that read this, STAY UNTIL THE VERY END!!!!!!!! There is an important ending after the credits to understand the entire story.

It had some great funny parts, the kids enjoyed it. I'd give it 3.5 stars Not as good as the first one, but the story was good and glad they kept the original cast. ;)

I took 3 of my grandchildren today to the 3D showing, ages 4, 7 and 11, we all enjoyed! The kids stayed in their seats with their eyes on the screen, there was none of the wiggling or is almost over. They could follow the storyline and even commented on the way home how some of the things tied into the 1st movie and made more sense to them. Very nice.

Took too long to get to the actual Movie

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 $$$)
