"It worries me when people use MU as an excuse that it’s okay to drop out of college or university. Disney provides morals and life lessons, but you need to remember that they still had to work their bums off for years before either of them got where they wanted to be. The real world isn’t like the monster world either. It’s much much harder. Please stop comparing yourselves to a cartoon. It’s unhealthy and you don’t want to make a mistake you can’t take back"

I think you might be misunderstanding what those people are taking from the movie. As someone who fits into that category, who did have to drop out of school, I know the characters worked their tails off to get to where they were in the first movie. I know life isn’t going to drop my dreams into my lap and I’ll have to work for them.
But a movie showing that characters we know get the job they want actually didn’t finish school, in a world where all of our parents, teachers, counselors, etc are telling us that if we don’t graduate university, we’ll be nothing in life? That’s great.
Not all of us can afford college or uni. And those who did manage to get in, don’t always get to stay there. The world, especially the US, is cruel to those in college and uni. That school I dropped out of? Over half my classmates had to to do the same. When I told my parents that I had to leave, for financial reasons and health (I would rather not be in school and have a place to live and get treatment for my jaw, than go to school and live in a cardboard box and starve) they told me I should hurry back because without a degree I would never achieve my dreams.
And this movie said it was okay if I couldn’t finish school.
We’re not thinking “Oh it’s fine if I drop out because I’ll still get what I want, easy-peasy.” We’re thinking “Everyone who said we were nothing but failures if we dropped out, everyone who said we could never get anywhere no matter how hard we tried if we had no degree, everyone who said that without college, all we could be were burger-flippers were wrong.”
That’s the message we’re taking from this, that we can still be someone without a degree and that dropping out does not define us or keep us from getting anywhere. We still have to work hard, but it doesn’t slam every door.

emphasis added. you go, person. that was amazingly well said.

Don’t forget that the church was literally so impressed they gave him a medal instead of imprisoning him or executing him

Mozart only needed to hear a piece once to play it better than the original. And on top of that, they believed all his music to have been created by someone else, not this kid, so they locked him in a tower for a period of time (forget how long) with only music paper. When they came back all the paper was filled and he had written on the walls as well. AND ALL THE MUSIC WAS PHENOMENAL. how much more perfect can you get than Mozart? If you want to know more: watch the movie Amadeus. It’s historically accurate but also funny at times. Watch. it.

so he was the first to illegally download a song

And for those of you that would like to hear the first illegally downloaded song that the Vatican kept a secret for so long because it was “too beautiful for human knowledge” You can find it here.

It totally is. Smoking is super gross and it smells bad and (this is probably tmi) tastes bad but its attractive.

YES! It is very aesthetically pleasing. I personally blame black and white movies and Johnny Depp. 

Yes. Johnny Depp in Cry Baby was my introduction to that kind of character and it has ruined me ever since.
