really cool

I completely forgot about this movie until I saw it on Netflix not long ago. Definitely worth watching again! I love those fun animated movies that slip through the cracks of your memory only to be rediscovered and enjoyed again years later.

She would never have been hit by the asteroid if she did not move. :)
8/10 stars.

After a meteor turns an innocent woman named Susan Murphy into an absolute giant, she is taken away by the government to live alongside fellow “monsters” as deemed by society. After aliens land on Earth and begin wreaking havoc, a scientist convinces the government to release Susan and the fellow monsters so that they can fight the aliens and save the fate of the humankind. This cartoon was fairly funny and action-packed for a children’s movie and had many fun parts that a young child would enjoy. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars and recommend it to young children and their families. @The_Review of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

When a UFO lands in America and it is found out that the aliens inside are hostile, who can stop this alien threat from taking over America? A group of monsters consisting of a mad scientist cockroach humanoid, a dino sized insect, a fish creature, a blue slime, and a giant human girl. I thought that Monsters vs. Aliens was a funny movie and really enjoyable to watch. Good family movie and my rating for this film would be 4.5/5

Funny at times, but not enough to make up for the lack of a decent story arc. There were characters I could've loved if they only had been written in with some heart and a story that made them more than pieces to project the plot. Many kids will enjoy it; some parents might; neither camp will probably remember it for more than a few days.

Amazing and awesome animation!

I watched some of this. I find this more aimed at kids. I will only add that the animation in it is more like contemporary with other Saturday morning shows.

(The President puts his hand on a large red button)
Everybody: No! NO! That's the button that launches all of our nuclear missiles!
President: Then which button gets me a latte?
Guy: Uh, that would be the other one sir.
(President looks and sees another button exactly the same)
President: Who's the idiot who designed this thing?
Guy: You did sir.
President: Fair enough.

Clone: “All right then. Be on your way. (To B.O.B.) Would you like a gun?” B.O.B. “Sure! Hey guys, watch this!”

B.O.B.: And I'll go back to my lab and finally finish my experiments.

Dr. Cockroach Ph.D.: No no, that's me, B.O.B.

B.O.B.: Then I'll be a really giant lady.

Dr. Cockroach Ph.D.: That's Susan, B.O.B.

B.O.B.: Fine. Then I'll go back to Modesto and be with Derek.

The Missing Link: Ah, that's still Susan B.O.B.

B.O.B.: I think I at least deserve a chance to be with Derek!
