Up



We took the girls to see "Up" yesterday. We really didn't know a whole lot about the story or what to expect, but we heard on the radio that pluggedinonline gave it a great review so we were confident it would be fun!

This movie was fantastic! The first 10 minutes or so are truly touching, establishing that this movie is not just a bunch of empty-headed humor to make kids laugh.

The characters of Carl & Russell are wonderful, the dog Doug is hilarious, and the floating house is just too fantastical for words! If you want a good movie with great content (not just pratfalls and potty jokes) take your kids to see "Up"!

This was a truly touching movie. Pixar has never disappointed. And yes, I took the 2 year old! The short with the cloud was just as sweet.
