One of my all time favorite Pixar movies, a sweet story about the Monsters who are in our closets.

Absolutely one of the best Pixar movies ever! A great film for the family.

Truly a Pixar classic. A little girl escapes the real world and into a monster world, where the screams of children are used to power the city. The plot is straight forward, but somehow the characters are so complex for a children's movie, making it equally loved by parents. The comedy is prime, the animation is stellar, ad the voice actors match the characters perfectly. Not one thing is out of place for Monsters, Inc., making it easily my favourite children's movie.

When it comes to "coming-out-of-the-closet" (Ha! Get the pun?), you can be sure that a star "Monster Incorporated" employee, such as Sulley or Randall, are the type of monsters who don't mess around. No. These guys mean business when they step out from behind a child's closet door.

For the most part, I enjoyed Monsters Inc. and found it to be quite imaginative as it told its cute, little tale of forbidden friendship and defying authority.

Set in the make-believe world of Monstropolis, where everyone's a literal monster (but usually a nice monster), we find that this urban centre's electrical power is generated from harnessing the screams of human children who are, nightly, scared out of their wits by the hideous, growling creatures who emerge, like demons, from out of their darkened, bedroom closets.

As we soon discover - A monster is, of course, forbidden to ever come into direct contact with a child, as the touch of these beings is both more toxic & deadly than any plague or disease imaginable.

Directed by Pete Docter (writer of Toy Story, Wall-E, Up), Monsters Inc. is a delightfully colourful, CG animated tale which tells us, plain & simple, that laughter is, indeed, 10x more powerful than a scream.

2 thumbs-up to Pixar Studios for delivering this good-natured, little gem that's sure to entertain audiences of all ages.

i love monters inc i remember at my school the whole school was watching this movie in the gym that was in 2002 when we watched it at school it was really funny but back than i didn't like the movie but i had to watch it cause everyone was watching and i had to watch it and the lights were off in the gym cause we were watching in the gym .

Sulley: (slams a door shut and Boo, Mike, and Sulley end up in a tropical land like in Hawaii)
`Mike: Wow! Why couldn`t we have been banished here?

Sulley: Mike, I don`t think it is dangerous.

Henry J. Waternoose: There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you. Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory; right into the monster world.
Trainee: I won't go into a kid's room. You can't make me.

Monsters generate their city's power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, top scarer Sulley finds his world disrupted.
