Monsters University

MPAA Rating: G

Entertainment: +3

Content: +3

Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley. 3D animated family comedy. Directed by Dan Scanlon.

FILM SYNOPSIS: Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. Monsters University unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

PREVIEW REVIEW: Colorful. Creative. Stylish. Silly. Funny. Family-pleasing. Devoid of suggestive and crude elements. What else needs to be said?

One small warning. Though nothing will be scary to those over the age of three, there were at least two wee-ones who vocally aired their displeasure at being spooked by growling creatures who evidently enter our rooms when we sleep. Parents, if your children begin to cry hysterically at something they see on the silver screen, take them out of the theater. They are being traumatized. Show some understanding for them and also some regard for fellow movie-attendees. I only mention this because some people do neither. They just wait until the management escorts them out, as was the case during one instance at the screening I attended. I kept thinking, good luck kid.
