A feisty septuagenarian teams with a fearless wilderness ranger to do battle with a vicious band of beasts and villains in this computer-animated adventure scripted by Pixar veteran Bob Peterson and co-directed by Peterson and Monsters, Inc. director Peter Docter. Carl Fredricksen is a 78-year-old balloon salesman. His entire life, Carl has longed to wander the wilds of South America. Then, one day, the irascible senior citizen shocks his neighbors by tying thousands of balloons to his home and finally taking flight. But Carl isn't alone on his once-in-a-lifetime journey, because stowed away on his front porch is an excitable eight-year-old wilderness explorer named Russell. Later, as the house touches down on the world's second largest continent, Carl and his unlikely traveling companion step outside to discover that not only is their new front lawn considerably larger, but that the predators therein are much more ferocious than anything they ever faced back home.~Jason Buchanan
This movie is several years old now but if you have not seen it you must. It starts out funny but then the next few minutes really pull at your heart strings. I found myself weeping the first time I watched it and if you don't at least get choked up when you watch it for the first time you must have ice water in your veins. The voice acting is excellent and the movie is a fun adventure with action packed final act. The 4K video presentation is outstanding as well as the Dolby Atmos audio. I highly recommend this movie for kids of any age!
Possibly Pixar's greatest masterpiece. The first 10-15 minutes are unequaled in animated cinema. Powerful, Emotional. The simple story of a couples life laid out with almost no dialog. Not a dry eye in the house. The rest of the story is just a fun and joyous romp of memorable characters. There are so mainly complex themes involving life and living and aging that you could write a careers worth of college papers on it. But at the end of the day it is just wonderful. The movie that gave 'Cone of Shame" to the pop culture lexicon.

Wonderfully heart warming!! We have been looking forward to getting this movie for some time and it did not disappoint. Watching the characters grow in their own ways and realize what is truly important in life brings so much hope for the future. The ending is just what it should be. Won't spoil it for a first time viewer but Mr. Fredrickson and Russel make a great team!!! Highly recommend this movie!
