Billy Crystal has hosted nine Academy Awards ceremonies and starred in box office hits like "When Harry Met Sally," "City Slickers" and "Analyze This," but even that resume wasn't enough to earn the 65-year-old respect from his grandchildren.

In a recent interview at the Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, Calif. to promote the upcoming "Monsters University," Crystal told a group of reporters what cool customers his four grandchildren are. They didn't know that their grandpa had any kind of special status until a paparazzo was following the actor and kids around The Grove, an upscale outdoor mall in L.A., taking pictures, prompting the kids to ask what the fuss was about.

'Monsters University' Clip Brings Out the Squeals


Unlike most movie follow-ups, "Monsters University" takes its main characters James "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) back a phase to show how they became the pair of lovably scary scamps we got to know in 2001's "Monsters, Inc."

As the title suggests, the story takes place at the college where the two first meet (lucky this is an animated world where they can easily age in reverse) and from the looks of this new clip, their initial encounter is just as festive and messy as one might expect. Get More »

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?

When Harry Met Sally MGM

Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect. Get More »

'Parental Guidance' Recommended For This Billy Crystal Trailer

Fox

Okay, let's get this out of the way right up front: No, "Parental Guidance" hasn't yet been given a rating by the MPAA, so it's not actually rated PG.

But while it doesn't have that bit of industry synergy going for it (yet), it does have the kind of synergy you get when you put Billy Crystal and Bette Midler together in a comedy about grandparents trying to adapt to, you know, being grandparents.

And it's also got a new trailer you won't want to miss. Get More »

'Monsters, Inc. 3D' Trailer Scares Up Some Laughs

Pixar

With just about every movie studio on Earth trying to wring a few extra bucks from their film catalog by reissuing their movies with hasty 3-D transfers, fans can become a little jaded. But there are two things about the new 3-D re-release of "Monsters, Inc." that buck that trend: The movie is awesome and it was pretty much made to be shown in 3-D anyway.

And just to make sure you remember how cool "Monsters, Inc." is, Pixar has just released a brand new trailer.

Start printing money now, Disney. Get More »
