It's hard to review a pixar movie. The benchmark is set too high that you don't expect anything but the best. MU suffers from the same kind of expectations that pixar fans carry with them. No doubt, movie is nicely built college rivalry story with some funny moments, some heart rendering moments. But this is not enough for pixar fans. Movie has conventional treatment and very few funny moments in first half. Most of the fun is generated by how monsters carry themselves as if they are humans. Second half is much stronger with supporting characters providing lots of fun, movie not following the usual underdog’s story pattern and lead characters getting enough screen time alone. At the end, you won't be able to say that it is The Incredibles or Up in the series of pixar movies but it is definitely Brave or Monsters Inc.
