Monsters University

Dan Scanlon (2013)

U Certificate


Our Score
This gag-packed prequel takes the heroes of Pixar's Monsters, Inc back to their college days, before Mike (voiced by Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) became best buddies. Thrown together in a fraternity of cowardly nerds and misfits, they're set a series of tasks under the watchful eye of Dean Hardscrabble (Helen Mirren) to prove they're worthy of graduating with the scariest of the scarers. Mirren is a glorious addition to the cast, her stony-faced dean a ringer for Mrs Danvers in Hitchcock's Rebecca. Director Dan Scanlon relishes placing the beloved characters in a fresh environment, and, while the nods to live-action frat comedies down the years come thick and fast, they never detract from what Pixar does so well time and again: telling a great story.


Premiere. Student creatures Mike and Sulley attend university to learn how to be scary, but their rivalry gets them both kicked off the course. The monstrous duo must learn how to work together if they are to realise their dreams of terrifying children. Animated comedy prequel, with the voices of John Goodman, Billy Crystal and Helen Mirren.
