Part musical, part action, all comedy, A Monster in Paris is a fun, yet convoluted, Disneyesque feature directed by Bibo Bergeron and written by Bergeron and Stephane Kazandjian. With the voice talents of Adam Goldberg, as the excitable Raoul, Jay Harrington, as the unconfident Emile, and Vanessa Paradis as the courageous Lucille; the plot follows the group along with their monkey friend, Charles, as they attempt to protect the title character, voiced by the brilliant Sean Lennon, from the police, all while exposing him to song and dance.
