Monsters University | Ratings & Reviews

"With Brave not living up to its many expectations and Cars 2 being straight-to-video rubbish (yeah, I said it), the prospect of another Monsters Inc. film came with its own set of fears. But despite the hefty pressure from pessimistic naysayers (myself included), Pixar has created a cinema rarity: a great prequel to a beloved property."

Flicks, Liam MagurenFlicks

"Zippy, bright-minded prequel scarcely needed to exist, yet makes for perfectly agreeable entertainment now that it does... Deals honestly and inventively with the hard reality that some talents can't be taught and some dreams remain unfulfilled."


"Pixar falls back on the tried and tested in an entertaining caper that will be a surefire kid pleaser this summer. Old favourites are always welcome, but it would have been nice to see some more new ideas too."

Total FilmTotal Film

"If the film lacks the heartbreaking quality of Pixar's revolutionary best, there's no demerit in playing it solid and safe for a change."

Time OutTime Out

"Both the originality and stirring emotional complexity of "Monsters, Inc.," with its exquisitely painful and touching parallels with the human world, are missing ..."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"A fun, disposable watch."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Mostly memorable for being fine but forgettable."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"An alarmingly lame effort from Pixar... The third consecutive less-than-first-class Pixar entry."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Dazzlingly clever and hugely funny, it succeeds both as a broadening of the Monsters universe and as a film in its own right. Monsters University had a tough task, and it’s passed with honours."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"A gentle, poky riff on college-comedy clichés, complete with a villainous, snobbish fraternity, a heroic, outcast fraternity, and a stuffy, intimidating dean (Helen Mirren, wonderfully severe)."
