'Monsters University' is a Pixar prequel to their film 'Monsters, Inc.'
As prequels go, “Monsters University” is pretty nifty. Blue-furred Sulley and big-eyed Mike (voiced again by John Goodman and Billy Crystal respectively, and respectfully) meet up as students at college and discover that being scary isn’t their strong suit.
As directed by first-timer Dan Scanlon, this Pixar picture manages to be sportive and funny while also imparting a nice life lesson for the young 'uns: Dreams don’t always come true. Old ‘uns could learn something from that, too.
