| Nothing To Criticize Here - Very Solid Animated Film
This is a very entertaining animated film. I've seen it twice and enjoyed even more the second time. Billy Crystal said he enjoyed making this film as much as any film he's ever done, so that's a good testimony that you'll get some laughs and enjoy this movie as an adult, too.

Kids will love it, I am sure. The "monsters" in here are funny-looking and almost lovable, nothing that would scare your kids (or you). Crystal has a bunch of funny lines but overall I found this to be as much if not more of a human interest story than a comedy.

There is a lot of sentimentality to it, even overdone a bit at the end, but that's okay. There is absolutely nothing offensive in here, either. The colors look spectacular, too.

Quotes

Flint: All right, Mr. Bile, is it?
Bile: Uh, my friends call me Phlem.
Flint: Uh-huh, Mr. Bile, can you tell me what you did wrong?
Bile: I fell down?
Flint: No, No, before that.
Flint: Can anyone tell me Mr. Bile's big mistake? Anyone?
Flint: Alright let's check footage, right there. The Door! ...


Goofs

In the commercial, we are told that Monsters Inc. matches children to the monster that is likely to scare them most. The monster in the beginning who demonstrated the 'dead door' said that his child was only six. Wouldn't they cut down on dead doors if they matched the door to a different monster who'd scare it more?


Crazy Credits

No monsters were harmed in the making of this motion picture.


Alternate Versions

Starting 7 December 2001 outtakes were added to the end credit sequence of the theatrical release, showing bloopers such as Sulley tripping over the top scarers, and a new scene at the very end of the credits in which Mike makes good on his promise and produces the company play, "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From or So Help Me", a musical version of the entire film. Both endings are available in the collectors edition DVD: the original credits are on the widescreen version of the film, the bloopers and company play on the fullscreen version.
