Today was a snowy day in Michigan and the roads were bad, so I elected to stay home and watch a great Pixar movie.
If you are looking for a clean family friendly movie to watch, Pixar gives us great movies without all the raunchiness that is usually in movies nowadays.
This article is meant to give you information about one of the best movies for kids, UP. I will start off by giving you a brief summary, review, and conclusion.
Carl Fredricksen, 8 years old at the time, looks up to the famous explorer, Charles Muntz. After playing and imagining that he is Charles Muntz, young Carl meets another Muntz fan known as Ellie.
This fascination that they both have turns into a relationship that lasts a lifetime. It seems like Carl is at his happiest with Ellie. They also try and save their money to go to Paradise Falls, which is where Muntz went, but they never end up saving enough money due to unexpected events happening that drains their savings.
This is where the really emotional part comes, where we see Ellie getting sick and unfortunately passes away. Now poor old Carl is a widower and lonely in his his. What a sad story? It makes me really hate when people get old. But, unfortunately you can’t avoid it.
To make matters worse a construction crew is trying to get Fredricksen to move to a retirement home, Shady Oaks.
He then encounters a wilderness explorer, Russell, that comes to the door that seeks to help Carl in any way necessary. But, he sends him away in search of a Snipe that is not known to exist.
When Carl had a disagreement with a construction worker, who accidentally ran into his mailbox, Carl accidentally struck him with his cane. It is then that the court forces him to go to the retirement home.
But, Carl tries to escape to Paradise Falls by attaching a lot of balloons to his house, causing him and his house to fly away.
However, unknown by Carl, Russel stows away on the house. After a storm, Russel is able to steer the house near Paradise Falls. Unfortunately upon arrival, they get knocked out of the house, but are able to hold on to the house by a hose, and then decide to take the house to Paradise Falls.
Join in this awesome adventure as Carl and Russel encounter different wacky characters along the way to Paradise Falls. They may also find the Snipe. There is also a surprise villain in this movie. If you watch this movie you also find out if Russel gets the assisting the elderly badge.
I know that this trailer will get you hooked on this movie. Enjoy.
This movie has some comedy and emotion in it. I love the characters in it, especially Doug and Kevin. Pixar makes the best movies, since Disney has acquired Pixar, their movies are getting better year after year.
I give this movie a 10 out of 10, it became a box office hit by grossing a worldwide net $735.1 million out of a budget of $175 million. That kind of profit can certainly pay off your debt and mine too.
I have also include a video for easter eggs below for your enjoyment.
Thank you for reading this article. I hope it piqued your interest in another fantastic movie by everybody’s favorite studio, Pixar.
