"The Blue Umbrella" Theatrical Short

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Disney Pixar proudly presents the hilarious story of how two mismatched monsters met and became lifelong friends in a movie screaming with laughter and oozing with heart. Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he dreamed of becoming a Scarer - and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike's plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot, James P. Sullivan, "Sulley" (John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair's out of control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University's elite Scare Program. With their dreams temporarily dashed, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right. Pull an all-nighter with hours of exclusive bonus extras, including an inside look at the world of monsters and the animated theatrical short film The Blue Umbrella. Monsters University opens the door to huge laughs on Disney Blu-ray.

Amazon.com

Ever wonder how Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan paired up to become the top scaring team at Monsters, Inc.? Somebody at Pixar did, and it turns out that the seemingly made-for-each-other partnership had an unexpectedly rocky beginning. Wazowski's childhood dream was to become a professional scarer, and his acceptance into Monsters University was a dream come true--until an unfortunate encounter with "Jimmy" Sullivan ignited a rivalry that threatened both monsters' chances of success. True opposites, Wazowski is studious, uptight, and completely intent on learning the history and theory behind scaring, but lacks any semblance of actual scare factor, while the boisterous Sulley relies on natural scaring ability and his family's reputation, but devotes virtually no time or attention to his studies. When an argument between the two classmates gets out of hand, they are expelled from the scare program, and the fraternity-sponsored Scare Games offers them one last-chance opportunity to get back into the program. Wazowski and Sulley reluctantly join forces with one another and a hodge-podge of other misfits out of sheer necessity, but they are a team in name only, with each of the two monsters vowing to pull the "team" to victory through his individual efforts and sheer willpower. What the pair discovers is that only by working together and taking advantage of each member's individual differences do they have a chance of winning the contest. The animation in this film is absolutely stellar, the story is intriguing, the development of favorite characters is believable, and the foreshadowing of Monsters, Inc. events is skillful and subtle. Humor abounds throughout the film and the jokes and gags flow freely on a variety of levels, ensuring that kids and adults alike are kept laughing and wondering what's coming next. Returning voice talent Billy Crystal and John Goodman are joined by Nathan Fillion, Helen Mirren, and Julia Sweeney, among others. While the film lacks the sweetness of Boo's relationship with "Kitty" in Monsters, Inc., Monsters University is a prequel that complements the original film well and will weather repeated viewings. --Tami Horiuchi

UPDATE 11/4/13: Blu-ray details review.

QUALITY: Unsurprisingly, the video quality is stunning. Little else needs to be said about the transfer. It's flawless.

EXTRAS: There are a TON of extras!

If you like the behind-the-scenes process of filmmaking, the extras here are about as extensive as I've seen before. Not only do the shorts give a background of life on Pixar's campus (Campus Life), but plenty of dedication to each aspect of making the film. Of course, there's also some deleted scenes.

What's nice about the scenes is that director Dan Scalon talks you through the scene in detail and why it was cut. They are of course unfinished, but still interesting to see what could have been part of the movie.

If I have one complaint, it's the layout of the bonus features menu. Despite the features being on a blu-ray disc, the menu does not operate like a blu-ray menu. Typically, you're able to operate within the menu while the movie (or features) are playing on screen. Instead, you need to return to the menu screen to select the next option. It's a small caveat, but there we go.

SPOILERS BELOW. DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE FILM.

If you don't care about the end being discussed, then by all means read on...

My wife and I saw Monsters University and both loved it. Many of the Top Critics on Rotten Tomatoes however, seemed to miss the point of the film entirely.

"This is a safe, predictable, edge-free, nearly bland effort from a studio that rarely hedges its bets." - Richard Roeper

"[It] conforms to [Pixar's] apparent drift toward the average, with toy sales taking priority over originality.

Format: Blu-ray
Dumb me! Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb me! All summer I put my faith and hope in the big blockbuster films, the Iron Man 3's and Star Treks of the world. And from Man of Steel to Pacific Rim almost without fail these over budgeted, underwritten explosiony action films left me feeling disappointed and underwhelmed. Except for World War Z there is not a single movie I've seen this summer that I can truly say was a great film. Some were better than others (Oblivion and Pacific Rim were both pretty good) but considering their competition was Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness that's not saying much. All the while I put off seeing Monsters U for weeks. "It looks silly" I said, "Pixar has lost its mojo" the idiot side of my brain insisted. Well, that sure teaches me. I will never doubt Pixar again. Even if they make another mediocre film like Brave, they have more than proven themselves still capable of making a damn good film.

Wall E will always be my favorite Pixar film, and Toy Story 2 will always be my second, but fighting for third place for a long time has been Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, the original Toy Story, and Up. That is the kind of company Monsters U is keeping. It does everything right, from delivering plenty incredibly funny moments balanced with the kind of emotionally powerful and heartfelt scenes that have made Pixar a household name. This movie is so funny I chocked on my popcorn. I haven't laughed this hard in a movie since 21 Jump Street. And it wasn't that cheap appeal to the lowest denominator type humor either. There aren't any fart jokes, poop jokes, inside innuendos about sex or drugs. None of that nonsense here. This is good old fashioned honest to God comedy that's drop dead hilariousness and perfectly appropriate for all ages.

This is such a fun movie for all ages. Most sequels ( or in this case, a prequel), just aren't as good as the first movie. This story, however, is just as good as the first! My son begged for this for Christmas, and this is one movie I feel completely comfortable letting my kids watch!

You can't go wrong with Sullivan and Mike they are just too funny. I was hoping that they would have a second Monsters release and here it is. Everyone who has gone to college will get a kick out of this - It really isn't only just for kids.

I noticed some good growing up lessons in this movie so I would recommend it for children and young adults alike.
One character learns that no matter how much you work at it, you might still fail (a good lesson on how to handle failure). Another learns that cheating doesn't pay and is in reality just another type of failure. Another character veers in a bad direction, illustrating that revenge isn't worth it. At the end the characters show that working hard at something is a good way to get where you want to go, even if it's not what you planned in the first place.

My favorite Pixar characters are back and better than ever. Monsters INC is a classic film. I think everyone can agree with that. So I was nervous while watching Monsters U but it did not disappoint at all. Such a pleasure to watch. It's basically an animated, family friendly, remake of Revenge of the Nerds, and as a child of the 80s that was really fun to see.
