For twenty years the government has been capturing and locking up Monsters in a secret Government facility - Wall Street. Now, it's time they work off a little of that $6 trillion dollar dinner tab and fight for our ever-toasty earth.
Suitable for kids 6-90. More suitable for kids with dreams of escape and live in a fantasy world, say 22-26.
But who can deny the allure of our lovable earth-grown outcasts saving the day? A 50-foot woman? Can she save California - maybe not, can she kick some corporate alien butt - you bet'cha.
This is a fun movie - even the most jaded teenager is going to come away with a smile on their face. Monsters may hide under the bed most of the time, but when their universe is threatened, there is no holding the Oooze back.
Dreamworks is no Pixar, but then again, Pixar is no Pixar after the Disney assimilation. The story is right, the message is right, the monters are ripe - what else could be better pre-taxes and post-wallageddon (We hope it's post...).
3d? That's another matter. The glasses are better this time around and this is a good movie for 3d, unlike the disaster Hamlet 2 (which might as well have been 3d for some semblance of a marketing hook).
It's more than fun, it's three-dimensional fun.
