Has anyone here seen Monsters U yet? What did you think?

I saw it a few weeks ago when I was driving home and hit a tornado warning in rush hour traffic. I pulled off the highway when I saw a movie theater and luckily this was playing.

I enjoyed it, although the premise of the movie really bothered me, considering this is a children's movie. Kids have no context for what college is, so I felt like a lot of the movie went over their heads. Maybe the film was geared more towards school aged kids, where as the original Monsters Inc is more for the pre-k crowd?

I have not seen it ... but yeah, it seemed a bit odd. Looked like maybe it was meant for older kids or maybe even adults, like The Simpsons or something.

It is such a bummer when "kid movies" aren't really for kids at all

I saw an ad for "Planes" the other day. DH is a pilot and Claire loves airplanes, so I think we will take her to see it. We watched the trailer on my Kindle and she was literally shaking with excitement. She has never seen a movie before, so it will be quite the experience for her!

All of my siblings loved it! We have a copy of it and they have been watching it almost every day lol. They are 12, 8, and 5. I thought it was really cute.

I really want to see it, but Elijah is too young to go.

Did you take your baby or get a babysitter? How did they do?
