| One of the most endearing animation films created
Pixar is the best! Of them all, Monsters, Inc. takes the cake. The realism of the characters' movements & feelings is perfect. The ending is a tear jerker on a happy note. At first I was concerned with the plot of monsters scaring children with a "business as usual" attitude, but right away you discover that the monsters are as terrified of the kids as the kids are of monsters.... wonderful juxtaposition throughout the film... a totally enjoyable, feel-good story. Buy it for the kids and let them watch it over and over. (adults may want to sit-in on more than one occasion themselves). Personal Note: For me, a mystery about this film was "Roz"; the voice reminded me so strongly of the grandmother in "Dinosaurs", and I thought the character drawing was similar as well; upon researching the two, I found they are definitely different actors.

Trivia

Bob Peterson, the movie's story supervisor, provided the temporary voice of Roz, the green secretary, during production. The nasal, sing-song voice proved to be such a success that they kept it in the final film.


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

When Mike and Sulley enter the Scare Floor the morning they sneak Boo into the factory, the clock says 8:50. Barely a few minutes pass before Mike is chased by Randall. They stop at a clock which then says 11:55.


Crazy Credits

"Outtakes"/"Bloopers" are played during the credits, such as Sulley tripping over the top scarers. Also some of the cast do a performance of "Put That Thing Back Where it Came From or So Help Me"


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.
