Venture into the delightful Parisian cityscapes 1910s and spellbound by the visually opulent family adventure of A MONSTER IN PARIS, directed and written by Bibo Bergeron (Shark Tale) and produced by world renowned filmmaker Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp and Bergeron’s Bibo Films. A MONSTER IN PARIS harkens back to the classic tale of beauty and the beast, and delivers vibrant storyline packed with elegant characters, unforgettable song-and-dance musical numbers and beautiful CG animation that the whole family will enjoy!
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 a 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 prize to help his 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!
The only way to really tell if you want to check out a movie is to watch the trailer. I love trailers so much that when I see movies in theaters I always get there in time to see the previews.

This is a super cute movie that the whole family enjoyed. I liked it because it was something different than the same old movies I have been watching with Big Sis lately. It is a slower movie but for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, maybe our attachment to the characters, the slowness did not bother us. I have a special place in my heart for Paris which can probably be contributed to my husband and I visiting it twice now and as we left I could only hope we get to go again some day. This movie can best be described as unique but in a good way. After Big Sis first watched it she immediately wanted to watch it again which is her way of saying two sticky thumbs up.
