Mike Wazowski – Monsters Inc.
By Kevin Montes
As a huge fan of comedy, and as a huge unconventional fan of Billy Crystal, I think this character hits all those beautiful Crystal notes. City Slickers and Mr. Saturday Night are two classics of his that hit the nail on the coffin for me. As much as I loved it as a child, now, as a grown man, I consider this film my favorite Pixar film (outside of the Toy Story trilogy) based upon my love of Billy Crystal and comedy. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard (in a non Toy Story film) with any other character. His neuroticism as a character also made me feel like this character itself is like an animated Woody Allen. Also, the pepper spray to the eye still gets me.
