Generally good, but not great

Parents will want to discuss why, at the end of the movie, when the plant was closing and workers' job were threatened, the workers didn't organize to operate the plant collectively, but allowed Sullivan to (mysteriously) become CEO.

best pixar yet!

I think monsters inc. is a film of magic and surprises. It's a little scary because there jobs are to scare children. But, i love it!

Pixar's Monsters Inc.

I love this movie on of the best Pixar movies, it is funny and the ending is good. It is very good and highly recommend for children! The movie is about Monsters, young children might be scared to watch it at first but it isn't scary, just little children watch it without knowing it is about monsters.

My 4 year old son was scared when he saw the monsters trying to scare the kids, even though he knew the monsters were nice. I think it seemed scary to him to think of being in the kids' place. He has woken us up 4 nights in a row saying he was scared of Monsters Inc., but not about anything specific. Just "the scaring."

Great movie, but may be scary for young ones.

This is a cute movie. It's about a monster named Sully and his friend named Mike and they work at Monsters Incorporated. It's the monsters' jobs to scare kids. So, this might be a little scary when a child sees a monster coming up from the shadows of a kid's bedroom and scares the kid, if your child is sensitive to these things. The kids scream in terror when they're scared, so kids may be frightened about that too. Anyway, Sully finds a human girl and eventually becomes her friend. I don't want to spoil the rest, but it ends wonderfully. Despite the scary parts, kids will enjoy this movie.

Everyone Will Love It!

This is a great movie for kids. There's no real bad stuff in it, and it definitely deserved its G-rating. Go see it.

Charming and funny!

My 2 year old daughter loves each and every character in this movie. She really identified with Boo.

Great movie...

This is a great movie, nothing too scary, great for young and old alike. There is one part when they are on doors and it looks like they may fall, that scared my at the time 5 year old and it was 2 years before he would watch the movie again. But then again my 4 year old loves the movie and didn't have a problem. So it depends on your child. Except for the one part above, nothing else bothered my kids. We have the DVD and my children watch it all the time (now that the 7 year old got over the falling part).

A charming story -- some scary parts need reassuring parental presence

This is a charming story. Boo captures the energy and unconditional acceptance of a preschooler is a charming way. Sully and Mike are great pals and support each other through thick and thin. My 2.5 year old loves the movie but does get scared and has added the phrase scary monsters to his vocabulary. I highly recommend that parents stay with their kids as they watch and reassure them that the monsters will not get them. In a strange way this movie has helped with fears. My son talks about what is and what is not scary now.
