My husband and I tried taking my 6 month old baby boy to see it he enjoyed the first 30 minutes and we enjoyed the entire movie. Must see and must buy the dvd.

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

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, although I feel like enjoyed it more than my kids. Great family picture with something for everyone. I took a 2yr old, 3 yr old, 8 yr old, and 12 year old, and all of us laughed out loud at some point in the movie. And my little kids were not frightened of the monsters - they handled that part of it very well.
