I'm a parent. I referenced this film in a job interview when asked " how would I describe teamwork?" I remember the first film came out while I was in my first years of college. Huge gap like the next film I plan to review. In this pre-quel we go back to Mike's childhood and why he wanted to become a scarer. He goes to Monster's University to become the scariest monster. While, in school he meets his friend from the first film Sully and they bump heads. They get kicked out of the scarying program and compete with a fraternity of un-scary monsters to get back in the program. The film was great I really enjoyed it. It was colorful, humorous, and a good follow-up.
