John Ratzenberger , Julie Blichfeldt - World premiere of Disney-Pixar's 'Finding Dory' at the El Capitan Theatre - Arrivals at El Capitan Theatre, Disney - Los Angeles, California, United States - Wednesday 8th June 2016
What would the world be like if dogs turned into super heroes? On a regular day at Fernfield Farms, five Golden Retriever puppies named Budderball, Rosebud, B-Dawg, Buddha and Mudbud discover some intriguing coloured rings that, when worn as collars, grant the wearer an extraordinary super power. Mudbud, for example, is given the power of invisibility, while B-Dawg becomes super stretchy and Rosebud super speedy. Like any young thing gifted with enormous power, they need a mentor and when comic book hero Captain Canine comes to Earth to explain about the Power Rings of Inspiron, they find themselves banding together to become the most powerful puppy litter ever - which is just as well, because an evil shape-shifter is on his way to destroy the planet once and for all.
Mike and Sulley haven't always been the best of friends that we know they were working at Monsters Inc. When they were amateurs and roommates both majoring in 'scaring' at the Monsters University, there was constant competition between the pair as Mike struggled to keep up with Sulley's natural big, hairy monster persona; Mike and his small physique and rather unscary retainer made him the favourite subject of mockery by Sulley and his friends despite their being in the same fraternity. It soon becomes clear, however, that they are better off together than alone while Mike has the brains and Sulley has the brawn.

'Deliverance' star Jon Voight and 'Cheers' actors Kelsey Grammer and John Ratzenberger attend a presidential campaign at Mitt Romney's campaign office in Las Vegas to show support for the republican presidential candidate.
The fallout from Danny Devito's divorce continues this week, with several of the New Jersey actor's showbiz pals apparently in shock over the breakdown of his marriage to Rhea Perlman.
John Ratzenberger, a friend of both stars but who appeared opposite Rhea in 'Cheers', was astounded to hear the news when approached by TMZ.com. "I didn't know. Are you serious? Oh that's sad. We were just with them the other night. They'd been together a long time - oh that's sad." Danny and Rhea were considered to have one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood. They wed in 1982 and have three children together, Lucy, 29, Grace, 27 and Jacob, 25. The pair worked together on television show 'Taxi' but are both perhaps best known for their turn as a squabbling married couple in the movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's 'Matilda'. They are yet to provide any more information on the reasons for their split.
DeVito has recently been promoting his movie The Lorax, though it's his forthcoming project that will be of most interest to fans of the star. The 67-year-old is to reprise his role alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Triplets', a sequel to their hit comedy 'Twins'.
Professional 'scarers' at Monsters Inc., Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (nicknamed Mike and Sulley) haven't always been so scary. 'Monsters University' tells the story of the duo's time at the University of Fear, about ten years previous, where they took their education in scaring children and often practised on each other with various college pranks that obviously united them in the end.

Andy (Morris) is getting ready to go to university, so the toys are preparing to be deposited in the attic. But a mix-up sees Woody (Hanks), Buzz (Allen) and pals sent instead to Sunnyside Daycare, an apparently happy place with no end of children to play with them. Except they're put in the terrible 2's room. And the leader of the Sunnyside toys, Lots-o-Huggin Bear (Beatty) is more like a prison warden. After a series of adventures, the toys must plot an elaborate escape.

There's an odd sense of dragging in the middle, and some of the action sequences feel like they never quite crank up to high gear.
On the other hand, the film is a series of gorgeously conceived set pieces and terrific character interaction and, unlike newer films, it's not afraid to get a bit grim. Stinky Pete's character is especially well-realised, right through to the anarchic closing-credit outtakes. As with most good sequels, the secret is to create strong new characters, and Stinky Pete certainly does that. It's also great to have Barbie in this world.

Right around the time Pixar Animation Studios released its fifth feature, Finding Nemo, conversation shifted from "Is it any good?" to "Just how amazing is it?" Quality was assumed, and rightfully so. The studio's creative directors helped redefine the animation genre with the Toy Story franchise, A Bug's Life and Monsters, Inc. Subsequent Pixar stories were measured against their predecessors and ranked accordingly.

Thank God! Almost as good as the original, Toy Story 2 is an unabashed crowd-pleaser to children and adults. With enough (non-offensive) adult humor and plenty of good-natured kid stuff, this film had our tiny audience in stitches from start to finish.
