When California girl Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is unwittingly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk on her wedding day, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall.
The military jumps into action and Susan is captured and put into a secret government compound. There, she is renamed Ginormica and held along with a ragtag group of Monsters: the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie); the macho half-ape, half-fish, The Missing Link (Will Arnett); the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. (Seth Rogen); and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus.
Their confinement is cut short, however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country. In a moment of desperation, The President (Stephen Colbert) is persuaded to enlist the motley crew of Monsters to combat the alien robot and save the world from imminent destruction.
Other stars in this out-of-this-world ensemble include Rainn Wilson as Gallaxhar, the megalomaniac responsible for the alien robots and looking to replicate a new world in his own image; Kiefer Sutherland as General W.R. Monger, an armed forces lifer who's finally found a use for his collection of detained Monsters...battling the alien invader; and Paul Rudd as Derek Dietl, Susan's selfish fiance, who has outgrown his current weatherman position and aspires to network news greatness.
