In some ways, Dean Hardscrabble appears to be the complete opposite of Henry J Waternoose. While Waternoose appears friendly and kind-natured but is actually cruel and evil intent on extracting screams out of children due to the Scream Shortages, and is, therefore, the original film's main antagonist as revealed during the climax. Hardscrabble on the other hand appears stern and unpleasant, seen being dismayed each time Mike's team don't get eliminated from the Scare Games, but is actually caring and benign, and therefore eventually became an ally to Mike and Sulley in the end of the film.

The cruddy trailer hardly filled me with hope for this belated prequel to Monsters, Inc., and the relatively laugh-free first thirty minutes did little to change my mind; however, once Mike and Sully and their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers enter the Scare Games, the film really picks up and the laughs start to come thick and fast. By the time the end credits were rolling, Monsters University had given me lots of giggles and even a few genuine belly laughs and I'd completely altered my opinion: the oft-used 'under-dogs do good' plot may not be as fresh as the original, but overall I reckon the film is well worth watching.
Some of the best moments are clever one-liners and subtle fleeting visual gags which could go unseen, or over the head of younger viewers, but that gives the film repeat value; I hope to catch even more funny stuff the second time around after I proudly add the DVD to my Pixar collection.
A very respectable 8/10 (If there had been more funny moments in the first half-an-hour or so, this would have been right up there with Pixar's finest).
