Monstropolis is a city powered by the screams of scared children. Sulley is one of the colourful monsters who visits their bedrooms, but one night he accidentally brings back a human child with him. This Pixar animation has a wonderfully wacky premise and it looks great, as expected, but its gags are not quite up to the studio's usual high standard. While Scully, Mike and the other creatures are beautifully designed, they are not terribly likeable characters. Followed by Monsters University in 2013.
