Set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside, Disney/Pixar`s latest hit follows the hilarious misadventures of James P. Sullivan (known to all as "Sulley") and his best friend, roommate, and co-worker, Mike Wazowski.

Both work at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream processing factory in the monster world, where Sulley is the top kid scarer and Mike is his enthusiastic Scare Assistant. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children. At Monsters, Inc. an elite team of Scarers is responsible for gathering these precious natural human resources.

Complicating matters is the fact that monsters believe human children to be toxic and direct contact with them is forbidden. When a little girl (named Boo) accidently follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. Assisted by Mike, he schemes to rectify his mistake but the trio become caught up in a series of complications and unexpected intrigue beyond their wildest dreams!

9 / 10
Disney and in particular Pixar these days signify quality. Monsters Inc is another quality production. I wont go into the plot much but basically a baby girl enters the world of monsters by accident and this causes havoc.

The movie features stunning animation from pixar and the picture is absolutely flawless. The sound also is a DD 5.1 and sounds brilliant. This 2 disc set is packed full of extras and there is plenty for everyone.

A great package from the house of disney. I got this for around £10 from dvdimport and at that price I think everyone should have this dvd.
