**Monsters University** is the prequel and puts the focus upon the one eyed midget Cyclopes Mike (voiced by Billy Crystal). While buddies in **Monsters Inc.,** we discover that Mike and Sullivan (John Goodman) were undergraduate rivals. In their petty rivalry, Mike and Sully run afoul Dean Hardscrabble (Helen Mirren), the hardnosed administrator who is part dragon.
**Monsters Univeristy** is a fun motion picture with an upbeat musical score. However this sequel lacks the heart of the first motion picture, which induced some tears. In fact, the short subject that preceeds **Monsters Univeristy,**, **The Blue Umbrella** contain more heart than either **Before Midnight** and **Monsters Univeristy.**
