Monsters vs. Aliens site
MONSTERS VS. ALIENS loses a ton of respect points for running away from AVATAR. So what if it's basically the most anticipated movie ever? I say you man up. You can say what you want about MAMMA MIA but at least that bad-boy is man enough to stand its ground. Fortunately MONSTERS earns back all of the lost respect points for packing a glorious cast.
When California girl Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk on her wedding day, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall and is instantly labeled a "monster" named Ginormica. The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie); the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link (Will Arnett); the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. (Seth Rogen); and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.
As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland), on a desperate order from The President (Stephen Colbert), the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction.
|Extra Tidbit:||Rainn Wilson also plays a part in the movie, as 'Gallaxhar'. Let's hope the writers managed to work a short rap into his role because he is dope at it.|
