When I heard that Pixar was coming out with a prequel to Monsters Inc. I was apprehensive. I loved Monsters Inc. and found it to be one of the most original films (family oriented or otherwise) I'd seen in many years. Plus, the film ended on such a positive note that seemed to make any prequel unnecessary and even regressing. But, I was very pleased with this film. My two year old daughter adores it while it had me laughing throughout much of it. I especially enjoyed the Scare Games challenge where they weren't supposed to scare teenagers--"but, Daddy! I love him!"
