-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

From the revolutionary minds of Pixar Animation Studios and the acclaimed director of Monsters, Inc. comes a hilariously uplifting adventure where the sky is no longer the limit.

Carl Fredricksen, 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 Wilderness 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 meet fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allos him to speak, and Kevin, a 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 looking for.

Including the hilarious short film "Dug's Special Mission," Up reaches new heights on DVD. "You will want to see it again and again," raves Christopher Kelly of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. It's an adventure that will send your spirits soaring!

My Comments:

Probably Pixar's funniest movie and a great adventure with a lot of heart and some very memorable characters. Most memorable of all is Dug, a sweet natured - though not too bright - dog. If real dogs were all like Dug, I'd want a whole pack of them.

Also, be sure not to miss the wonderful short "Partly Cloudy."
