The story is all about Determination and Positivism. How you can fight the odds when they're all against you. And how you can make things work to your advantage as long as you have the drive. I didn't quite like the cliche 'Nerds Fight Back' theme that went on. But the scene where Mike and Sulley first worked together to scare human adults instead of children is definitely our favorite ever. That was the best scaring scheme! And adult screams generate more energy than kids'. Who knew?
Lastly, when Mike finally accepted the fact that he couldn't be a scarer... he went on and became a scare coach. How's that for making your weakness work for you!
My kids got a different message though.
"So let me get this straight. We don't need to finish school to get a job?"
Ugh. Thanks a lot, Disney Pixar.
