Monsters Inc

Monsters Inc (2001) is the coolest movie. I watched it last night for the first time and wished I'd seen it when it first came out. As with all the computer-animated Pixar movies, Monsters In has a delightful balance of humour aimed at both kids and adults and a real "ohhhhh" moral to the story (without being cringe-worthy). This is a great story and John Goodman and Billy Crystal are in fine form as the two lead monsters.

I love the story about Mary Gibbs (Boo). Apparently, she was so young (2 1/2 years) that it proved difficult to get her to stand in the recording studio and act her lines. (funny that.) Instead, the crew simply followed her around with a microphone and cut Boo's lines together from the things she said while she played. Imagine what her school friends will say when they find out she was Boo!
