My Monsters University Movie Review: 7 Not-So-Scary Things I Loved About Monsters U

I’m not usually one to write movie reviews. Heck, I don’t even see a ton of movies in the theater (we usually rent) but my family and I had the opportunity to see Monsters University (thank you Disney) and I am quite compelled to report that I LOVED it. My whole family loved it. Monsters University is by far one of the Clark family’s all-time favorite animated films. For reals. I wouldn’t write it if I didn’t mean it.

Here’s a few things about the movie that I found particularly noteworthy:

  • For the love of Monsters U 1 of 8
  • Little Mike 2 of 8

    Getting a glimpse into Mike Wazowski's childhood was the cutest thing ever.

  • Color power 3 of 8

    The use of color throughout the movie (monsters, landscapes, and architecture alike) made it a true visual delight.

  • 3D 4 of 8

    I've never seen 3D done like this. It might sound overly dramatic but it really made you feel like you were actually in the movie. Did I say a visual delight?

  • Diversity 5 of 8

    The diversity of the cast. I so appreciated that every single monster was unique. The imagination!

  • College-bound 6 of 8

    The University scenes actually got me giddy for my daughter and her soon-coming college experience. I didn't see that coming.

  • Pure comedy 7 of 8

    My entire family laughed out loud throughout the whole movie. No easy feat with ages spanning 10-45.

  • A great mom 8 of 8

    Squishy's mom, Ms. Squibbles cheered on the OK Fraternity team the whole time. And drove them around, among other mother-like stuff. A mama after my own heart.


If you haven’t seen the movie yet and want more info, take a peek at the official Monsters University website. And be sure to see the movie in theaters while you can.

As a side note, my 10 year old would like to recommend the Monsters University Storybook Deluxe app. She’s got it for her iPad mini and thinks it’s a blast.
