Experience the film that captured the hearts of critics and fans around the world. MONSTERS, INC. is "visually dazzling, action-packed and hilarious," raves the Boston Herald. Lovable Sulley and his wisecracking sidekick Mike Wazowski are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the scream-processing factory in Monstropolis. When a little girl named Boo wanders into their world, it's the monsters who are scared silly, and it's up to Sulley and Mike to keep her out of sight and get her back home. Open the door to phenomenal world of excitement and imagination that will have you screaming for more.|MONSTERS, INC., shattered every DVD-era home entertainment sales record when 11 million DVD/VHS copies of the film were sold during its first week of release. Only THE LION KING, released in the "pre-DVD" era, sold more units when it debuted on VHS in 1995.|Typically, voice actors record their parts individually and never meet their costars -- but John Goodman and Billy Crystal broke animation protocol for MONSTERS, INC., and recorded their parts at the same time. Says Crystal: "I did the first session alone ... and I said, 'You know, this is terrible.'" Director Pete Docter "kept wanting all different line readings of the same line," Crystal says. '"Why am I doing all of these?' I asked. He said, 'Well, in case I change the scene around, and I'll get John to do it.' I said, 'Isn't that just silly? When we can be together and do it together and play the scenes?' And that's what we did.
