Mini Movie Review: Monster's University

Finally got to see Monster's University this past Friday (I was cheap and used scene points :) haha) and it did not disappoint.

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.

The movie starts with a young Mike Wazowski (so cute!) on a field trip to Monster's Incorporated. This is what fuels his desire to go to MU and become a scarer, even though pretty much everyone tells him he isn't scary enough.

The two monsters met in class, and Mike instantly hated Sulley. Everyone else loved him because he's related to one of the famous Sullivans and that made Mike hate him even more. They competed with each other all semester, and then an accident leads to both of them getting kicked out of the scare school. They spend the rest of the movie trying to get back in and eventually start working together and then become friends.

You're introduced to a variety of different monsters, including Randall from Monster's Inc. Some monsters are the jocky frat boys (one of which is voiced by Nathan Fillion, who I love haha) and some of the monsters are the dorky and not so cool students.

I loved learning about how Mike and Sulley became friends, and the few references to the first movie. It was a really funny movie, and I think kids and adults alike will love it (especially the now adults who were kids when Monster's Inc. came out). I really wish Boo could have been in the movie (she was my favourite), but obviously since it's a prequel that's not possible. Though I do feel like the sorority PNK was a nod to her, because they were pink and purple.

Hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did, and as always stay tuned for more misadventures.
