Since I'm looking to stay far away from possible spoilers, could you just tell us if it's a good or bad review?

I didn't really see anything that would qualify as a spoiler...read more like a PR promotional piece! The "reviewer" gave it an A+ rating, and predicts it will beat Shrek in box-office take.

I don't see it beating Shrek but I will probably the boys to see it, so there are 3 guaranteed ticket sales.

I think it might actually topple Shrek, hard to say though - a certain trailer might help

We have preview tickets for my two sons (we couldn't go to the preview, since we're hosting a showing of 2001 as a fund-raising party the same night, unfortunately).
It will take something to top Shrek, but the sneak previews looked very good.

It will not be like Shrek; no fart jokes or double entendre jokes. A friend in Hollywood saw Monsters, Inc. a few days ago and said it was funny, kind, uplifting and reassuring in its message. That will probably mean less box offiice then Shrek which was just the opposite in my opinion.

Even through I can't wait to see Monsters, Inc., the film will not make that much money in the long run here in the states. November 2nd isn't that good of a weekend to release a big profile family film and two weeks after the film's release, (one of) the biggest film of the year comes out (Harry Potter).

Am I the only one who sees that to be disturbingly true?
You're not the only one. I haven't read the books (and as of now, I still don't want to read them), but due to all the hype I may have to check out the film.

If you haven't read the books, I would highly recommend that you read them. I personally read a wide range of books, including both fiction and non-fiction and was skeptical at first, but I loved these books. If you like to read, and you're thinking about seeing the movie anyway, there's no reason not to give them a try as they are thouroughly enjoyable. You can always put them down if you don't like them. As much as I love movies, how often is a movie better then a truly great book anyway? Kind of of funny thing to say on this forum I know.
