During the final challenge of the Scare Games, Arlo from The Good Dinosaur (2015) makes a cameo along with some other dinosaurs as a toy on the floor. At the time of this movie's production and release, The Good Dinosaur (2015) was supposed to be Pixar's next movie, but after its eighteen month delay, it instead became Inside Out (2015). See more »
In the house party scene, a modern dance song is played. Assuming that this movie takes place years before Monsters Inc. (which was released in 2001), this song shouldn't even exist. See more »

A prequel to one of Pixar's most beloved films, Monsters Inc. In all honesty, I wasn't looking forward to this one too much. A sequel would have been a better option. Like the Toy Story movies, it should take place a long while later, and Mike and Sully should meet back up with a teenage Boo or something. Boo was the soul of that movie, and, of course, in a prequel, Boo can't exist. Instead, we get the story of how Mike and Sully met in college. The story is made up of a ton of college movie clichés in the Monsters world. And it's fine. Not great, nothing really special, but it's very enjoyable and the animation is gorgeous. The last time I revisited Monsters Inc., the animation seemed a little primitive, but Pixar has more than perfected it now, and I loved seeing the wonderful monster designs. Steve Buscemi, the villain from the first film, is prominent in the cast again. Other famous cast members include Nathan Fillion, Sean Hayes, Dave Foley, Charlie Day, Aubrey Plaza and Alfred Molina. The most memorable new character is Dean Hardscrabble, played by Helen Mirren. The design, kind of a centipede dragon, is extremely cool and actually pretty creepy.
