Sweet-natured animated film from Pixar that's geared more towards the younger end of the family spectrum than films like "Toy Story." Monstropolis is a town that is powered by the screams of human children, which are captured in tanks thanks to "scarers" who invade the kids' bedrooms via their closet doors. Sully (Goodman) is the best there is, with the help of buddy Mike (Crystal), but he has a problem when human toddler Boo (Gibbs) accidentally gets loose in monster town, which is a big no-no, and Sully has to get her safely home. There's also some sinister goings-on at a company level causing problems for our boys. Very colorful and more silly than scary (what's scary is the familiar toddler behavior).

This is one of my favorite animated movies. The monsters are so cute! I wish I had my own Sully! The monsters go to work and drive cars just like people do, but their jobs aren't like our kind of jobs, their jobs are to go through doors and scare little kids. They are actually really friendly, for the most part. When Sully meets the little toddler after she came running through the door after him, they become very close throughout the movie. He doesn't know her name so he calls her Boo. Sully's partner and friend Mike tries to convince him to send her back and wants no part of being around the girl. All the monsters think that people can kill them with one touch. The mean monster, Randall, tries to get Boo, but not for a good reason. Sully and Mike try to keep Boo away from Randall and get her back to her door that leads to her room.
