Die Monster Uni: Directed by Dan Scanlon. With Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Helen Mirren. A look at the relationship between Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sully” Sullivan (John Goodman) during their days at Monsters University, when they weren’t necessarily the best of friends.

“The cruddy trailer hardly filled me with hope for this belated prequel to Monsters, Inc., and the relatively laugh-free first thirty minutes did little to change my mind; however, once Mike and Sully and their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers enter the Scare Games, the film really picks up and the laughs start to come thick and fast. By the time the end credits were rolling, Monsters University had given me lots of giggles and even a few genuine belly laughs and Iu0026#39;d completely altered my opinion: the oft-used u0026#39;under-dogs do goodu0026#39; plot may not be as fresh as the original, but overall I reckon the film is well worth watching.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome of the best moments are clever one-liners and subtle fleeting visual gags which could go unseen, or over the head of younger viewers, but that gives the film repeat value; I hope to catch even more funny stuff the second time around after I proudly add the DVD to my Pixar collection.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eA very respectable 8/10 (If there had been more funny moments in the first half-an-hour or so, this would have been right up there with Pixaru0026#39;s finest).”
