The world's most unlikely heroes are on a mission to save Earth in DreamWorks Animation's Monsters vs. Aliens – "The year’s funniest comedy" (Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com). Ginormica, Dr. Cockroach Ph.D., The Missing Link, Insectosaurus and B.O.B. join forces to fight back when aliens attack. With an all-star cast and amazing animation, this ginormous adventure is "a monstrously good time for all!" (Bill Bregoli, CBS
Monsters don't exist, right? If they did, they'd be locked up in some secret government location so the general population wouldn't know of their existence. But what if monsters do exist... and they aren't evil, or even particularly scary? What if they're funny... and smart... and what if they might just be the key to man's survival? When a meteorite crashes in California on Susan Murphy's (Reese Witherspoon) wedding day, Susan is struck by a dose of otherworldly quantonium, her bridal glow becomes decidedly green, and she suddenly swells to a gargantuan 49 feet-11 inches tall. The Feds swoop in and whisk her away from husband-to-be Derek (Paul Rudd) to a government concealment agency where they dub her Ginormica and leave her to bemoan her losses and spend the rest of her days with strange creatures like B.O.B., the brainless blob (Seth Rogen), mad professor Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie), the half-fish and half-ape Missing Link (Will Arnett), and the overly huge and strangely silent grub Insectosaurus. Next, Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson), ruler of an alien civilization, sends a huge robot to attack Modesto, Calif., to recover the quantonium released by the fallen meteorite. Under the ineffective leadership of President Hathaway (Stephen Colbert), the government embraces General W. R. Monger's (Kiefer Sutherland) suggestion to pit the imprisoned monsters against the robot in exchange for their freedom. The monsters are no match for the robot until Susan begins to really believe in her own abilities and embrace the power of her friendship with the other monsters. B.O.B is absolutely hilarious with his consistent propensity for misunderstanding, indiscriminate digestion of anything and everything in his path, and witless adoration of his fellow monsters. The crazy exploits of Dr. Cockroach inspire lots of laughter, Insectosaurus proves his worth in the end, and Ginormica serves as the glue that holds the whole film together. The InTru 3-D format is highly effective and if you like animation; visual, verbal, and action comedy; references to past science-fiction films; and lovable monsters; you'll enjoy Monsters vs. Aliens.

The good guys - the "monsters" are typically-likable as you see in other animated films of today. They are pretty funny, too, diverse "monsters" like "Dr. Cockroach, B.O.B and The Missing Link. They, along with "Ginormica," who does her impression of the 1950s sci-fi character, "The F-Foot Woman," are appealing and fun to watch.
I'm tempted to describe this movie as "innocent," because it's such a nice story that doesn't have all the innuendos some other animated films have, yet still will make most adults laugh in many spots because there is some good humor that kids wouldn't get. "Monsters Versus Aliens" shows one doesn't need "edginess" in every movie to have adults enjoy the kids' film, too.
Chances are you'll find this movie a lot better than you thought. Give it a shot.
This is a very funny video. Seth Rogan's signature laugh is contagious. Everyone will love this DreamWorks picture. Looking forward to a part two.
Acting wise, I adored Reese Witherspoon (Susan) and Seth Rogan (Bob). I though they were perfect in their roles. I thought Raine Wilson (Galentor sp? evil alien) was ok, He came off as a generic cartoon bad guy for the most part.
The movie is decent. The visuals look amazing. They did a great job in the edit room. The script and film design is obviously for the whole family as there are comedy bits for kids and some for adults. Seth Rogan (Bob) was funny I enjoyed when his character was on screen. Otherwise it's a pretty predictable comedy action. It's not a bad movie but it's not one I am so in love with I'm going to desire to watch again.
I've always said that getting the Blu-Ray versions of animated films is a MUST. To get the clarity of this is the most important thing. You're cheating yourself, unless you only own a DVD player. I got a great deal on this, at $5, and couldn't pass on it. I like that it comes with the DVD because i can let friends borrow it so that they can enjoy it as well.
