Deliberate mistake: When Boo laughs repeatedly while playing hide-n-seek with Sully in the men's room, nothing happens to the electricity - no surges as with all other times she laughs. [In the audio commentary by the directors, they explained that it would've been distracting if an energy surge occurred every time Boo laughed, so they simply didn't address the issue. A reasonable course of action, but still a mistake.] (00:37:30)
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Directed by: Pete Docter, Lee Unkrich, David Silverman
Starring: John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Frank Oz, Billy Crystal, James Coburn, Jennifer Tilly, John Ratzenberger, Bob Peterson, Mary Gibbs
You know when your were little, and you thought monsters came through your closet and scared you? Well, don't take it personally. It was just a job. Monsters depend on the screams of human children to power their city, Monstrapolis. So they climb through the closet doors of kids around the world, and store the screams at Monsters, Inc. This is dangerous work, as every little monster knows that nothing is more toxic than a human child - "a single touch could kill you!" So when the city's top scarer Sully and his friend Mike accidently let in a human child named 'Boo', they'll do anything to get her back into the world she came from.
Trivia: Mike and Celia have dinner at Harryhausen's. This is a tip of the hat to Ray Harryhausen, the great stop-motion animator.
Question: At the end of the movie, Fungus is seen amongst the employees promoting doing fun stuff, but since he is seen assisting Randall, and generally helping him and Waternoose with the scream machine earlier on, shouldn't he have been banished (like Randall) or hauled off by the CDA (like Waternoose) when the whole plan came to the CDA's attention?
