Monsters vs. Aliens [DVD] [Canadian; French]
Region 1 USA/CA (
When a radioactive meteor hurtles into Susan Murphy (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) on her wedding day, she is transformed into a towering, platinum-haired giant. Taken away by the government and dubbed "Ginormica," Susan is introduced to other scientific oddities, including the amphibious Missing Link (Will Arnett), the dim blob B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), and the brilliant, bug-headed Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie). These "monsters" are released from captivity when a massive alien robot sent by the scheming Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson) appears in San Francisco and clearly does not come in peace. With little time to adjust to her new stature, Susan must learn to work with her strange allies to avoid an all-out extraterrestrial invasion.
Co-directed by Rob Letterman (SHARK TALE) and Conrad Vernon (SHREK 2) for DreamWorks Studios, this enjoyable animated production riffs on 1950s sci-fi movies while also playfully referencing everything from DR. STRANGELOVE to CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. The vocal talent, which also includes Stephen Colbert as a daft, keyboard-playing American president, is top-notch, adding plenty of personality to the super-sized visuals and eye-popping effects. Conveying an easy-going sense of humor that will delight kids and amuse adults, MONSTERS VS. ALIENS is fun family fare that is sure to leave everyone thoroughly entertained.
"An animated funhouse that delivers on its title and ups its scary-comic impact....There's enough merry mischief here to satisfy..."
"The clean lines of the film's 1950s retro look work well with the uncluttered, straightforward tale, and the filmmakers' nod to the era's B-movies is a nice one."
Los Angeles Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "Dazzling colors, winning characters and energetic visual effects all work in concert....Witty dialogue enhances the lively story."
"MONSTERS VS. ALIENS has bells and whistles, superb technical sophistication and dazzling visual effects, sound, fury, and Reese Witherspoon..."
"Directors Rob Letterman and Conrad Vernon have created a clever entertainment that with its onscreen battles and old movie references spans several generations of moviegoing."
"[T]his why-didn't-anyone-think-of-this-before dust-up involving one-of-a-kind mutants and space invaders boasts sufficient jokes and eye-popping action..."
3 stars out of 4 -- "Looks like DreamWorks finally figured out that when you have a good script, a great voice cast and fun characters, you will have a great movie on your hands. This is a pleasure to watch for everyone."
"Stephen Colbert gets in some laugh-worthy deliveries....The banter between the monsters, Ginormica included, is generally clever and snappy..."
