We scare because we care.
Monsters Inc is the largest scare factory in the monster world and James P Sullivan (John Goodman) is one of its top kid scarers. Sullivan is a huge, intimidating monster with blue fur, large purple spots and horns. His scare assistant, best friend and room-mate is Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal), a green, opinionated, feisty one eyeball of a monster. The cast of characters also includes the factory's CEO, a crab-like monster named Henry J Waternoose (James Coburn) and the snake-headed, beguiling receptionist Celia (Jennifer Tilly). One of the top scarers is a sarcastic chameleon monster named Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi). Visiting from the human world is Boo (Mary Gibbs), a tiny girl who goes where no human has gone before.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
Monsters Inc is a film that you don't have to see but if you do see it, you will bloody well enjoy yourself. You will be safe volunteering to take the kids to see it because there's as much in it for you as there is for them. It's funny, it's clever, it's witty and it's on over the Christmas break.
You don't need to know anything more, just enjoy!
