Monsters University
Mike's first day

As a child, you'd lie in bed listening for any scary noises. You would peer out the window, but nothing was there. You would listen for footsteps and watch the shadows to see if they moved.

If this was you, the chances are you were being scared by one of the finest. It might have even been Mike Wazowski or James P Sullivan working on techniques.

For those who grew up with the Monsters Inc characters or have more recently been introduced, Monsters University takes us back to the beginning. From the first moment little Mike decided he wanted to be a scarer, to the moment he and Sully first met.

The brilliant voices of Billy Crystal (Mike Wazowski) and John Goodman (James P Sullivan), bring this world of monsters alive once more.

Told with the style, humour and energy of the first movie, Monsters University lives up to the Monsters Inc name.

The story begins with young Mike realising his dreams.

We all know from the first movie that he managed to fulfil those dreams, but it wasn't all smooth sailing and easy grades; it was a journey discovering what he really wanted out of life - with a lot of laughs along the way.

Monsters University gives lovers of the film, and those new to the scene an insight into Monsters University life.

Viewers will meet some great new, endearing (if a little strange) characters and get to know the old favourites on a new level.

With school holidays fast approaching I would suggest this movie is fine for young children, especially those already familiar with the franchise.

Young or young at heart, this movie is for anyone looking for a nice story, some cheesy jokes and brilliant colours and detail.

Whether it's nostalgia from the first movie, the bad jokes, or the story of friendship, I think you will leave the movie theatre smiling after seeing this one.
