Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 11/02/2001
"...There hasn't been a film in years to use creative energy as efficiently as MONSTERS, INC.; this is one clean-burning fuel engine that doesn't waste a joke or a thought..."
USA Today - 11/02/2001
"...This is a standout pleasure trip for preschoolers up through the early grades....The movie is as visually inventive as its Pixar predecessors..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/09/2001
"...MONSTERS, INC. has got that swing, that zippity, multilevel awareness of kids'-eye sensibilities and adult-pitched humor..."
Box Office - 01/01/2002
"...Richly original....A story that blends humor, pathos and action into a backdrop as creative as any classic fairytale..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2002
"...Beautifully rendered....The alternative universe it portrays has an insulated quality that gives the movie much of its escapist charm..."
Total Film - 03/01/2002
"...Flawlessly animated, MONSTERS, INC. glows with loving care and attention....The humour works as part of a thumpingly good narrative..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/02/2001
"...MONSTERS, INC. is cheerful, high-energy fun, and like the other Pixar movies, has a running supply of gags and references aimed at grownups..."

Product Description:

Intelligent, funny, adorable, and beautifully animated, MONSTERS, INC. will delight fans of SHREK and TOY STORY, while drawing a new audience of curious, kid-friendly viewers. Billy Crystal and John Goodman make a fiercely funny comedic team as job partners and best friends, Mike (Crystal)--a little green guy with one huge eyeball, and Sulley (Goodman)--a big purple and blue fuzzy guy with dinosaur spikes down his back. Mike and Sully work at MONSTERS, INC., a gigantic corporation that captures the screams of little children and turns them into energy. To make the children scream, the monsters must enter each child's bedroom through the closet door, then deliver a frightening affront. The only problem is, kids aren't scared anymore. And because of this problem, Monsters, Inc. is in a jam. But when one little girl, Boo (Mary Gibbs), follows Sully through her closet door and into the factory, she brings an even more dire issue to the fore: the monsters are actually terrified of children. From Pixar Animation Studios, MONSTERS, INC. is an exciting adventure with a sweet, happy ending.

Both the DVD and VHS releases include the animated short FOR THE BIRDS and a home video exclusive performance of "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me" created by Mike Wazowski.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment:

Monsters, Inc.
From the Academy Award(R)-winning creators of TOY STORY comes the computer-animated film that captured the hearts of fans and critics everywhere. MONSTERS, INC., is "visually dazzling, action-packed, and hilarious" (Boston Herald), featuring groundbreaking animation, imaginative storytelling, and unforgettable voice talent. John Goodman stars as the lovable James P. Sullivan (Sulley) and Billy Crystal as his wisecracking best friend, Mike Wazowski. Top scarer Sulley and his enthusiastic Scare Assistant Mike work at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory in Monstropolis. The main power source of the monster world is the collected screams of human children. Monsters believe children are dangerous and toxic, however, and they are scared silly when a little girl wanders into their world. Sulley and Mike do their best to return the girl home, but they face monstrous intrigue and some hilarious misadventures along the way. MONSTERS, INC., is "supremely clever -- fun for kids and adults alike" (CBS-TV). Treat yourself to the most entertaining movie of the year with all-new exclusive bonus features and animation for monster laughs and monster fun.
