Carl Fredericksen is a 78- year-old curmudgeon. He used to enjoy his modest life as a balloon seller when his adventure-loving wife Ellie was still alive. When she died, Carl was left with his memories and the awareness that they never made their dream journey to Paradise Falls in South America. When well-meaning officials consign Carl to Shady Oaks Retirement Home, he rigs thousands of helium balloons to his house and floats away. He discovers that Russell, a chubby Wilderness Explorer Scout has stowed away. In the tropical jungle, Carl and Russell find more than they bargained for. Charles Muntz is a crazed explorer whose newsreels once inspired Carl and Ellie; Kevin is an exotic bird with a weakness for chocolate; and Dug who is an endearingly golden retriever fitted with a voice box. More importantly, Carl and Russell discover they need each other.

The first impulse is to simply call this a "cute" movie. And it most definitely is that. But there are also a few deeper life lessons tucked inside the adorable exterior for those who care to look. A very enjoyable way to spend 90 mins.

I don't understand the hype of "Up". It's cute and all, but I prefer "real" animation, the way Disney used to do it. Not really impressed with this one. I've only seen this once, and that was really enough.

Up is an instant classic that I can watch over and over and still find something new to enjoy each time I see it.

For adult and child alike. A coming of age story both for a child and a elderly reclusive. A truly enjoyable film.

A contender for best animated feature ever, Pete Docter's co-written story and direction both touches the viewer and offers smart, mature comical moments. In watching the film, I realized that most animated works just don't really say much about our society as a whole. This one does and, I feel, handles it even better than Docter's co-written story from the previous year, "WALL-E".

Just a clash of a series of events. To make the story more meaningful it could have included more about the loving relationship between the main character and his wife. Less than a 1 star.

Carl Fredricksen: This is crazy. I finally meet my childhood hero and he's trying to kill us. What a joke.

Dug: Hey, I know a joke! A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, "I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead." Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.

Charles Muntz (yelling): "Does anyone know WHERE THEY ARE?" (Russell bangs into window and slides across it, making an annoying squeaking sound.)
