MONSTERS VS ALIENS. Grade: B-PLUS

Written March 26, 2009
Based on an ACTUAL advance press preview which I attended last week - this 1hr 35min animated movie has a superbly well-cast voice ensemble. MONSTERS VS ALIENS draws its humor from various TV and big-screen movies - and lampoons/parodies/pokes fun at them. Be sharp or you will miss the inside jokes/references. Although not on par at the stratospheric level of PIXAR's productions in terms of slick story-telling/plot and technical aspects, the high-production value MONSTERS VS ALIENS is definitely worth checking out. Both kids and adults should enjoy its family-oriented wholesome fun. MONSTERS VS ALIENS has the distinction of being the first computer animated movie which was produced ENTIRELY in real 3-D - FULLY 3D from start to finish - meaning EVERY scene is in 3D - unlike previous animated movies which were only 3D in some scenes. It has a budget of $165 million. VERDICT: Go see it! Recommended. Light-hearted healthy hearty family-fare.

O.K. Dreamworks, boobies is a real cute way to describe a woman's breasts, but come on , can you save pointing out a woman's privates for a more appropiate age group? To the Dreamwork writers.....do your kids on the playground point to little girl classmates and talk about her boobies? Is there anyone with talent that can write fun and classic tale without being crude?

Worthy of a family night out, take the kids, this is a good movie and the 'Real 3D' seems better then others

This is a good movie, its 3D is definatly one of the best I've seen for some time and the movie it's self is a fine piece of family fun. Reece plays a good heroine but this doesnt make this a kid friendly 'chick flick' but appeals to both sexes and all ages, its a scifi but unlike 'Witch Mountain' its better cast and the plot humorous, we dont see some actingly challenged main character tying the plot together but a team of fine quality actors, Seth Rogan's blob is a character unto itself. Very kid friendly and people actually stayed past the credits for potential extra scenes, a definate sign of a good movie. Grade: B+

My son and I went to see this movie the other day and we both were not disappointed. The movie had an easy to follow story line, great characters, and the 3D affects were the best that I have seen in any of the 3D movies that I myself have viewed.
