About the Movie

Set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside, the film follows the monstrous misadventures of James P. Sullivan (John Goodman), known to all as "Sulley", and his best friend, roommate and co-worker Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Both work at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory in the monster world, where Sulley is the top kid Scarer and Mike is his enthusiastic Scare Assistant. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children. At Monsters, Inc., an elite team of Scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources. Believed by monsters to be toxic, human children are strictly forbidden from entering Monstropolis. When a little girl named Boo (Mary Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. Assisted by Mike, he schemes to rectify his mistake but the trio becomes caught up in a series of complications and unexpected intrigue beyond their wildest dreams.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It may be harder nowadays to dazzle audiences with fancy visual effects, but Monsters, Inc. 3D proves that smart, imaginative storytelling still does the trick every time. – Stephan Lee, Entertainment Weekly, Dec 19, 2012

Fresh: The good guys are those who realize that laughter is stronger than fear. That's a message worth taking to heart these jittery days. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The excellent basic ideas have yielded too few twists and dramatic junctures to keep the picture flying at the level at which it starts. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: If history is any guide, you and your family - whether young or old - will probably want to see "Monsters University" over and over. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Dec 18, 2012

Great Movie for Adults and Kids!

Monsters Inc is one of my most favorite movies EVER and I'm so glad it is on iTunes. It has great messages, it's funny, witty, and NOT a predictable film. And being Pixar, high expectaions are preceeded. This Academy Award-Winning film is such a great pick. Other than Disney's Hercules, this is the best movie on iTunes; so glad they have it. Hilarious! I would reccomend this to anyone who likes funny disney-like comedy movies!

Boo is a Cutie

Boo is my favorite....and Mike is funny.....Sully as a good heart....this is a very good movie 'cuz we see what is on the other side of the door....=)


I am so glad this movie is available! This is my 3 year old daughter's favorite movie and I often let her watch movies on my iPod during our long car rides. She will be so excited.
