18 Funny review of U RATED PICTURE
Inc is a company which scares children to get their screams to convert
best scarer in the company, blue and purple-fluffy Sulley, meets
little girl (Boo) who is not scared of him. Sulley and Mike Wazowski
(green one-eyed monster) attempt to get her back through the door
from which she has escaped, but are hindered by the machinations
of bad monster Randall who sounds irritatingly like Sherman in American
suitable for all - includes monsters, some comic violence, warehouse
machinery and swinging from heights

I don't remember Monsters scaring children in the movies. In my
day they concentrated on scantily clad teen girls. Kids just grow
up so fast these days."

there, bought the bendy toy, bought the happy meal, saw the movie
at the cinema, bought the DVD, bought the book, lost the book, bought
the book again, bought the DVD with the extra special super premium
content they brought out 6 months later, went to the web site, downloaded
the screen saver, bought the computer game for both the PC and PS2,
bought the VHS just in case the DVD ever broke, bought the breakfast
cereal, ate the breakfast cereal, tried a new breakfast cereal I
would never have tried before had a character from this movie not

the merchandising that annoys me so. When they brought out Jaws,
had McDonalds done a happy meal of that we all would have been too
frightened to ask for one! Damn the kids today."
tell me the ending
an attempt to cover up the disappearance of Boo, and the bad publicity
it would bring, the owner of the company, Waternoose, catches her
with the intention of killing her.
and Mike save Boo and return her to her house. The door is then
'shredded' to prevent any further problems. Sulley has a splinter
from the door and manages to secretly go back to see her... "Kitty!"
harmless movie which will probably make children slightly less scared
of monsters. This could be a bad thing if you are using this to
keep them off the roof, still, hey this is a market economy and
there was money to be made.
most Hollywood mainstream cinema today is focused on making a turn
on the investment, there can be fewer movies more designed for sell
through marketing than this movie. Shame the story still needs a
bit more to it.
is a simple tale told using nice characters. Still not a patch on
Toy Story which is brilliant.
