Whilst my movie crying ability takes on epic proportions in KDL lore, one must admit that “Up” is a doozy of a tear-jerker! From the charming courtship montage of Carl and Ellie, through the goofy antics of Dug, to the plight of poor, hunted Kevin; I cried, and cried, and cried. And Loved Every Minute of this delightful movie.
Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios take moviegoers up, up and away on one of the funniest adventures of all time with their latest comedy-fantasy. Up follows the uplifting tale of 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip an overly optimistic 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. Their journey to a lost world, where they encounter some strange, exotic and surprising characters, is filled with hilarity, emotion and wildly imaginative adventure.
