Rotten: It] conforms to Pixar's] apparent drift toward the average, with toy sales taking priority over originality.

The prequel to Pixar's 2001's roaring-CGI-concoction is fun and entertaining. Even though it doesn't measure to the amount of sentimentality or heartfelt nature from Inc. Monsters University is still able to deliver visually and harmoniously. The film's charm and modernization is a slight boost to propel Pixar from some of its slight slumps over last few years. 4/5

I wasn't a huge fan of the original Monsters Inc, or any of the other new wave of Computer animated 3D type films of the l;ate 90's. This was down to them all being preachy and telling the same story over and over again. It's like every American cartoon has to teach values on acceptance and individuality. It's tiresome, yeah it looks good and the people who made it are very clever etc but the story should be key. I'm a firm believer that cartoons of this ilk should just play for laughs and I really thought this one would, it's what the trailer suggested anyway. Overall I'm disappointed, it's better than the first but I certainly didn't love it.

School Never Looked This Scary. Monsters University is a great film. It's both funny and sentimental in all the right places. Fans of the first movie will see a lot of cameos in this one. The story ends when Monsters Inc. begins. I will even advise the next generation to see Monsters University first and then go on to Monsters Inc. Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other. "Monsters University" unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
