Does Monsters, Inc. have what it takes to scare the "S" outta Shrek when it comes to digital animation supremacy? Visually, yes. Every blue hair on John Goodman-voiced lead beast Sully effortlessly flows, and those nerds at Pixar (Toy Story, A Bug's Life) get more emotion out of sidekick-y Mikey's one eye than most live actors offer with twice the socketry.
But while obviously cute, this tale about a sweet girl who creates chaos in the boo crew's alter universe is no Toy Story. It would have helped to replace a few of those pixels and substories with more heart and comedy to appease the little animals in the audience. That's only a minor quibble, though, for a film that continues to take our visual fascinations beyond anything we could've ever imagined--whether it be under our bed or on the screen.
