Friday Flicks: UP


About the movie: Carl Fredicksen, a retired balloon salesman, is part rascal, part dreamer who is ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year old Wildnerness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time - Carl's front porch! The world's most unlikely duo reach new heights and meets fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, the rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life's biggest adventures aren't the ones you set out for.

From me: Cute movie! Pixar has done it again! Up didn't hold the boys' attention as hard and fast as Toy Story or A Bug's Life did, but they still really liked it. It will be added to our list of movies to purchase (as all Pixar movies are). (I loved Dug!)

Disclaimer: This movie was rented, by me, for my enjoyment and sharing it with you was my idea. I have not accepted anything in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
