A Monster in Paris Review

I recently had the opportunity in reviewing the movie, “A Monster in Paris.” From the director of Shark Tale, Bibo Bergeron.

An internationally acclaimed motion picture finally arrives in America! Featuring All Star Voice Cast of Vanessa Paradise, Catherine O’Hara, Bob Balaban, Sean Lennon, Adam Goldberg, Jay Harrington, and Danny Houston.


In, “a Monster in Paris” a wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a massive mistake when let loose in a mad scientist’s laboratory. With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally creates Franc, the product of s reaction between a common flea and one of the scientist’s mystery concoctions. What they fail to realize, however, is that this ‘monster’ is actually a soft-centered soul with an astounding talent for music.

With the help of an enchanting nightclub singer, Lucille, Franc becomes the talk of the town, just as stories of Paris’s newest monster attract the attention of the egotistical police commissioner, hell bent on securing a big prizefighter to help hos battle to become mayor. The unwitting scientists and the singer must team up to protect Franc, a monster with more than a musical career to protect!

A Monster in Paris harkens back back to the classic tale of beauty and the beast, and delivers a vibrant storyline packed with elegant characters, unforgettable song-and-dance musical numbers and beautiful CG animation that the whole family will enjoy! This critically acclaimed international major motion picture features enchanting, honey-toned vocals by Vanessa Paradis and Sean Lennonn, with music score by popular French singer/songwriter, Matthieu Cherdid (aka M) and Patrice Renson.

I watched this movie with my two youngest children. And may I say, this movie wasn’t what I expected. It was just magnificent. The animation was great, and I just fell in love with the singing and dancing. The voices were so soothing and soft. I could listen and listen forever! The storyline was wonderful, of course there was a problem, a solution, a villain, heroes, comedy and a little romance.

Truly is it something the whole family will enjoy.

My son already wanted to watch it again, so did I!

The run time for the movie is 1 hour and 27 minutes.
