Up is an Upper!
9 January 2010 | by ROC-7See all my reviews

What a wonderful,touching,beautiful and fun film..if you ever feel down in the dumps this little gem will lift your spirits and set you right again.

After some dismal items with other so-called animated films with Jr.High School toilet humor this production is A++ and is intelligently crafted and cast with Ed Asner,Christopher Plummer and John Robert Thompson supplying the magic of their voices and the great Pixar troupe that would make Uncle Walt smile with approval.

This is a high water mark for others who wish to entertain with a well rounded and moving story that will take you on twists and turns and put the perennial "lump in the throat" and a smile in your heart. Walk into the story not knowing a thing like I did and you will be amply rewarded. Check out the short subjects,too
