Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this short animated film that comes packaged with the Monsters vs. Aliens DVD combines the same goofy characters with conflict and cartoon violence that might be disturbing to very young children. Two creatures attempt to blow up their friend with a bomb. The trio fights against an evil military foe by throwing gelatinous blobs at him and engaging in angry (though funny) exchanges, and a jet goes up in flames. Viewers can choose 2-D or 3-D, and the latter cranks up the intensity.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


The conflict between the monsters and the general ranges from slightly tense chase scenes to angry exchanges to getting trapped and hit by blobs. The fiery crash at the end might disturb sensitive kids.


The characters mildly insult each other and use words like "stupid" and "party pooper."

Social Behavior

Not much of a message in this short film, though what little there is tends toward the negative. Friends insult each other (though humorously), and the general criticizes another's athletic ability by saying, "You throw like my 12-year-old niece."


The high profile of Monsters vs. Aliens means kids will see these characters as toys and other merchandise.
