Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Monsters, Inc. has got that swing, that zippity, multilevel awareness of kids'-eye sensibilities and adult-pitched humor.  The movie doesn't soar; it does, however, glide and occasionally giggle..''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Very Good "Monsters, Inc. is a triumph of storytelling. Each new movie of this sort raises the bar a little more, and, while Monsters, Inc. doesn't eclipse Dreamworks' Shrek, it comes close.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Monsters, Inc. is cheerful, high-energy fun, and like the other Pixar movies, has a running supply of gags and references aimed at grownups (I liked the restaurant named Harryhausen's, after the animation pioneer).''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Very Good "Monsters begins with a bang, slumps some in the middle and comes back at full force at the end. Though the comedy is sometimes more frenetic than inspired and viewer emotions are rarely touched to any notable degree, the movie is as visually inventive as its Pixar predecessors.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As predicted, THIS IS A MUST SEE FAMILY FILM! These are some extremely high opinions. Adults liked it almost as well as the kids. There were a LOT of very high opinions given by adults, which is rare for an animation. Nearly all the kids rated it "Fantastic"

The only negative comments made were the appropriateness of the movie for very small children. A few thought it was a bit too scary for them and one said a few little ones were taken out crying (which may or may not have been caused by the movie).

TAKE THE WHOLE FAMILY TO SEE MONSTERS, INC.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
This one is a MUST SEE for everyone who enjoyed any of the previous Pixar movies such as "Toy Story." It has lots of humor that everyone will enjoy. I predict this movie will receive some of the highest moviegoer opinions in a long time. TAKE THE WHOLE FAMILY!
