Plot
Sulley and Wazowski return for a 3D re-release that sees them bump in a little girl called Boo and unwittingly open a monster-shaped can of worms on Monstropolis.


Review
Monsters, Inc. 3D
Pixar’s record for 3D conversion remains flawless with this spiffied-up version of its 2001 hit.

The story and characters, of course, needed no extra oomph.


Verdict
Another chance to see Pixar's most dazzling premise, now spruced up with a third dimension.
