The Rabbit Film has been re-living the funniest quotes from some of Pixar animation studios best films. And, today, we will be looking at Monsters Inc, which told the heartwarming tale of monsters who scare children, but happen upon the child, Boo, who wanders in to the monster world.
The film was directed by Pete Docter (Up) and starred the wonderful Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally), John Goodman (The Big Lebowski) and Steve Buscemi (The Sopranos)
The film was highly successful at the time of release in 2001, an instant classic, enjoyable for all the family. The film had a reasonable budget of $115 million and grossed a mind blowing, $526,366,597.
And with a prequel planned for release in 2013, we will get to see more of these loveable monsters. This time, at University, keep an eye out for the full trailers.
Perhaps the funniest character in Monsters Inc was Mike Wazowski, the one eyed monster, shaped rather like a chick pea and voiced by comic genius, Billy Crystal.
Check out the quotes below:
[Mike and Sulley watch a commercial featuring them, but Mike is covered over by the Monsters Inc. logo]
Mike: I can’t believe it…
Sulley: Oh, Mike…
Mike: I was on TV. Ha. Did you see me? I’m a natural
Mike: I think I have a plan here: using mainly spoons, we dig a tunnel under the city and release it into the wild.
Mike: That’s it, I’m out of ideas. We’re closed. Hot air balloon? Too expensive. Giant slingshot? Too conspicuous. Enormous wooden horse? Too Greek.
