Coming to theatres this Friday from director Dan Scanlon, Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animated Studios comes the prequel with MONSTERS UNIVERSITY.
This film tells the story of Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sullivan (John Goodman) long before they worked for Monsters Incorporated. Instead we go back in time a little to when these two best friends first met.
It begins with both attending Monsters University! Mike begins to attend scare classes and feels a tad out of place. When Sullivan walks into the room its hard not to notice him. Coming from a scare family Sullivan is the laid-back college guy who is always in the mood for a good time.
Mike, however, is a different story. Wanting to be the best student at Monsters U he doesn’t grab the concept of having a good time. Roommate Randy (Steve Buscemi)
FINAL WORD: It seems that Crystal slid back into the role of Mike with complete ease and doesn’t miss a beat.
Goodman as Sully gets a chance to have a good time this film around.
It was hard to watch Buscemi be a total 180 of his Randal character from MONSTERS, INC.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give MONSTERS UNIVERSITY three tubs of popcorn out of five. This is definitely a family film and one everyone will enjoy. It is cute, adorable, funny, with a story, which is everything Disney/Pixar is known for.
That being said be aware that it’s all pretty much predictable.
In the end – it’s back to school at Monsters U!
