'Monsters University' Review

Those precocious Pixar monsters are back -- this time in college. The adorable (yet not-so-ferocious) Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) takes center stage in Monsters University as a determined little monster (we see him as an eager but left-out grade schooler) who goes off to MU to major in scaring.

But instead of being BFF with James P. "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman), as he was in 2001's Monsters, Inc., this time the guys are monstrous rivals who try to one-up each other in the scaring department.

Check out my review of the Disney*Pixar film on mom.me. While the movie itself is gorgeously animated, I thought some of the themes were a little over the heads of the typical younger audience. Also, CC got scared at a particular sequence toward the end. That surprised me, too.

Take a look! The film also screened this week at the LA Film Fest, which is running through June 23.
