Description

A city of monsters with no humans called Monstropolis centers around the city's power company, Monsters, Inc. The lovable, confident, tough, furry blue behemoth-like giant monster named James P. Sullivan (better known as Sulley) and his wisecracking best friend, short, green cyclops monster Mike Wazowski, discover what happens when the real world interacts with theirs in the form of a 2-year-old baby girl dubbed "Boo," who accidentally sneaks into the monster world with Sulley one night. And now it's up to Sulley and Mike to send Boo back in her door before anybody finds out, especially two evil villains such as Sulley's main rival as a scarer, chameleon-like Randall (a monster that Boo is very afraid of), who possesses the ability to change the color of his skin, and Mike and Sulley's boss Mr. Waternoose, the chairman and chief executive officer of Monsters, Inc.

Synopsis
Intelligent, funny, adorable, and beautifully animated, MONSTERS, INC. will delight fans of SHREK and TOY STORY, while drawing a new audience of curious, kid-friendly viewers. Billy Crystal and John Goodman make a fiercely funny comedic team as job partners and best friends, Mike (Crystal)--a little green guy with one huge eyeball, and Sulley (Goodman)--a big purple and blue fuzzy guy with dinosaur spikes down his back. Mike and Sully work at MONSTERS, INC., a gigantic corporation that captures the screams of little children and turns them into energy. To make the children scream, the monsters must enter each child's bedroom through the closet door, then deliver a frightening affront. The only problem is, kids aren't scared anymore. And because of this problem, Monsters, Inc. is in a jam. But when one little girl, Boo (Mary Gibbs), follows Sully through her closet door and into the factory, she brings an even more dire issue to the fore: the monsters are actually terrified of children. From Pixar Animation Studios, MONSTERS, INC. is an exciting adventure with a sweet, happy ending.

Both the DVD and VHS releases include the animated short FOR THE BIRDS and a home video exclusive performance of "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me" created by Mike Wazowski.

"...Richly original....A story that blends humor, pathos and action into a backdrop as creative as any classic fairytale..."
Wade Major (1 Jan 2002, p.62)
Chicago Sun-Times
"...MONSTERS, INC. is cheerful, high-energy fun, and like the other Pixar movies, has a running supply of gags and references aimed at grownups..."
Reinhard Ebert (2 Nov 2001, p.29)
Entertainment Weekly
"...MONSTERS, INC. has got that swing, that zippity, multilevel awareness of kids'-eye sensibilities and adult-pitched humor..."
Lisa Schwarzbaum (9 Nov 2001, p.82)
New York Times
"...There hasn't been a film in years to use creative energy as efficiently as MONSTERS, INC.; this is one clean-burning fuel engine that doesn't waste a joke or a thought..."
Elvis Mitchell (2 Nov 2001, p.E17)
Sight and Sound
"...Beautifully rendered....The alternative universe it portrays has an insulated quality that gives the movie much of its escapist charm..."
Crash Leyland (1 Feb 2002, p.54)
Total Film
"...Flawlessly animated, MONSTERS, INC. glows with loving care and attention....The humour works as part of a thumpingly good narrative..."
