Fantastic Movie. I really liked the movie, and I'm hoping my daughter will as well. She really liked Monster's Inc and I'm confident she will like this too. I think its just a little under the original. I think there was a great new idea with Monster's Inc and it was an amazing new concept. There are a few discrepancies in the the 1st one Mike says to Sully something about him doing that since the 4th grade.....but come along to University and they meet in college...not that it matters, but there are a few little things. I don't believe most kids will catch them...but I'm trying to be critical...To finish up, I really loved the movie and I'm sure you will too...its a lot of family fun

This was a cute movie - a little slow to start but picks up after a little bit. I'm a huge Billy Crystal fan, and I was excited that they made a second Monsters movie. I really enjoyed watching them go through each of the obstacle courses - especially the one in the library. I thought they were goners for sure, lol.

Quite frankly, I love this movie. It may be even better than Monsters, Inc., but only because I found the 'baby talk' of Boo annoying.
This is a perfect back story to help us love the characters of Sully and Mike even more (if that is possible). Great story line, great voice acting, top of the line cgi, laugh out loud humor, heartwarming story without the sappy ending - make this one for buying for a collection - albeit a digital one.
Kudos on a fantastic film.
Great for kids and adults alike - can be watched before or after Monsters, Inc

This movie is so cute it is fun for the whole family. Good for adults and kids of all ages. This is defiantly one movie you need to have in your collection. My family and I have watched this movie over and over. The one liners in it is awesome so adults will really enjoy this. I really hope they make another one in the monster series.

This movie just wasn't as funny as we thought it would be. After the first Monsters movie, my family was expecting a lot more.

Really unusually for a second movie of a series, I thought that this was a much stronger story than the first one. Watching Mike and Sulley act like jerks is a little painful after having gotten attached to them from Monsters Inc., but since the story is essentially how they get over it, make friends, and grow up a little, I think it's a worthwhile price to pay.

Most situations and side-characters varied from amusing to hilarious, and you get to see a little more of how the monster world works. There's still a bunch of excitement and action, but it seemed more character-driven and purposeful compared to the sometimes hapless running around of the first movie.

If, like me, you think you know what to expect from standard college coming-of-age stories, dream-chasing stories, or even from a story that has to end up as the world you see in Monsters Inc... this movie will throw you at least three or four serious curveballs. But each one just makes the movie better.

I guess I could live without knowing the backstory of Sully and Mike, but this movie provides their failed attempt at university life and getting over petty differences so their friendship could bloom. Sure, there are lots of gags and humor that adults would enjoy on a different level from kids, but the whole thing was so predictable. I like how they tied things up at the end so that it runs right into Monsters, Inc. storyline. I guess I'm just not enjoying this as much as the original Monsters movie.

One glitch I experienced was with the Dolby HD audio. The HD audio was mixed so high (volume) that it triggered the safe mode on my Sony amp/receiver several times during intense scenes. I didn't have the volume cranked up and no other blu-ray does this, so it must be an issue with the blu-ray. I switched the audio to Dolby Digital and it was fine, but what's the point?

Great film. I really liked this "prequel". Well worth the buy. That said, I watch Amazon Streaming using my Roku player. When I watch it that way, there are no bonus features attached to the video (or at least none that I can find). They seem to be there when I load it in Firefox on my PC (the video length appears much longer), but I prefer to watch movies on the old 42 inch set. Any ideas?

This is probably closer to a 4.5 star flick, but I was a HUGE fan of the original. Given that logic, Monsters Inc was a 5 for me and I felt like this was not quite on that same level. It's got the classic Pixar formula (some action, humor, the heartwarming lesson) with the same characters (as well as a nice spattering of new ones) from the original movie set in their college years. Overall, it works. It's entertaining from an adult perspective as well as for the kids (mine go from early teen to two). Fans of Monsters Inc. as well as new fans will appreciate this movie.

With respect to the package itself, I like to opt for the Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy option as we generally watch Blu-ray at the house, I can use the DVD in the car system, and then the digital copy on the laptop or tablet. I went with the iTunes variant, but it was also available through a few other options (amazon, google play, and one more).
