The final 'Monsters University' trailer is here and it gives us our best look yet at the latest film from Pixar. Although we're still not completely sold on this one (more on that in a bit), a Pixar release is generally a cause for celebration and animation fans will find much to appreciate here.

Having returned to the public sphere with his most recent Academy Award hostings and the upcoming 'Monsters University,' legendary comedian Billy Crystal will next head to TV full time. The 'When Harry Met Sally' funnyman will headline a new FX single-camera comedy pilot 'The Comedians,' but what about the creative team has the TV industry already buzzing?
'Monsters University,' Pixar's prequel to 'Monsters Inc.,' brings back Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowkski and John Goodman's James P. Sullivan to tell the duo's awkward college stories. But we get to go even further back in time in the brand-new 'Monsters University' trailer to see the moment when little toddler Mike first wanted to attend college. The only downside, for non-Japanese speakers at least, is that the trailer's all in Japanese.
2013's big summer Pixar movie is 'Monsters University,' the prequel to their hit 'Monsters Inc.,' and a film that we're a little nervous about. Some Pixar sequels are good ('Toy Story 2' and '3' come to mind), but then there's 'Cars 2.' But a new featurette gives us a little more information about the plot, and yeah, it sounds a little bit like 'Revenge of the Nerds.'
I was worried 2012 would end and there wouldn't be a clear winner for the prize of Worst of the Year. 'Parental Guidance' was worth waiting for. It isn't just the worst film of 2012, it's the worst film of 2011 and probably 2013, too. 'Parental Guidance' is a cinematic hemorrhoid throbbing on the screen, its only purpose in life to cause pain and discomfort.
We've seen competing asteroid pictures, competing "Friends with Benefits" films, competing destructive volcano pictures, but in 2012 we're getting competing "Bonding with your parents" movies, both within a week of each other. First comes 'The Guilt Trip' on December 19, and then 'Parental Guidance' on December 25. Now there's a new trailer for the latter.
Despite whatever flaws we may have, our parents are there to support and help us whenever they can. At the same time they can crawl under our skin a little too much, a bothersome predicament that happens in the new 'Parental Guidance' trailer.
