As far as underdog tales go, “Monsters University” lands above average, with no huge laughs, but plenty of chuckles throughout, matching the tone and emotion of “Monsters Inc”. Focusing more on the child laughs rather than aiming any at the adult groups that will see the film, this Pixar film gears at toys and Disney sales, rather than creating a completely memorable experience like say “Up” or “Toy Story” perpetuate. The voice acting is impeccable, with John Goodman remaining one of the best voice actors of all time. Piling on a few too many characters and not reaching the creativity of the original, the film falls a bit flat in certain areas, but combines enough premises in one film to keep things interesting along the way.
