Common Sense Media reviews Monsters vs. Aliens for kids and families.
Imagine if you had a six-foot tall monster-like pal to help you through the rough times when you were a kid!
Willy (Matthew Knight) is terrified about moving into the family's new house. He's convinced it's filled with evil space aliens out to get him. In response to his longing for someone to save him, Gooby (voiced by Robbie Coltrane, Harry Potter's Hagrid) comes to life as a big, lovable, scruffy creature who quite possibly may be more frightened of
the world than Willy. The two new pals embark on hair-raising adventures and learn about courage and the power of friendship all the while with Eugene Levy (Night at the Museum) on their trail. In the end, Gooby fulfills Willy's wish by bringing Willy and his dad (David James Elliott, JAG) together in a heart-warming and exciting climax.
When California girl Susan Murphy is unwittingly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk on her wedding day, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall. Alerted to the threat of this new monster, the military jumps into action and Susan is captured and secreted away to a covert government compound. There, she is renamed Ginormica and placed in confinement with a ragtag group of other monsters: the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement is cut short, however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country. In a moment of desperation, The President is persuaded by General W.R. Monger to enlist the motley crew of Monsters to combat the Alien Robot and save the world from imminent destruction.
