From Disney-Pixar comes "Up," a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But, he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic eight-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Funny and poignant and full of life, Up easily qualifies as one of the best movies of the year so far. Go with someone you care about."
‑ Tom Charity, CNN.com
"This is really special."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Up is breathtaking in its imaginative detail and astonishing in its emotional range."
‑ Alan Jones, Radio Times
"There might not be a more dependable name in all of Hollywood than Pixar, and their tenth animated feature, Up, continues the studio's remarkable hot streak."
‑ Perry Seibert, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Quintessential Pixar."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"The movie is packed with lovely jokes, some of them funny in inexplicable ways."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"An exquisite work of cinematic art that also happens to be the funniest, most touching, most exciting and most entertaining movie released so far this year."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"I challenge you not to tear up."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"What makes Up such a satisfying film is the story of an old man deciding that he still has life left to be lived. And that life is an adventure."
‑ Josh Jackson, Paste Magazine
"Has more heart and soul in its tiniest pixel than most competitors' movies can boast in their entirety."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"The key to Pixar's success has always been the perfect blend of heart and humor -- and they've certainly done it again here."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Its charms appear to have been applied with surgical precision; by the end, I felt expertly sutured, but not much else."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"The first 10 minutes of Pixar's fantastical 3-D animated adventure Up are a sublime testimonial to the purity and magic of the cinema. I know because I was a sobbing basket case by Minute 11."
‑ Dann Gire, Daily Herald (IL)
"The glory of Pixar's films as that they touched on universal themes, all the way through, that just happened to also tickle kids. This one starts out that way, and then settles comfortably into being a kids film."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The pacing is perfect, the animation looks terrific, the emotional range is wide, and there are a few sly jokes you might not catch the first time around. That's okay; you'll want to see it a second time anyway."
‑ Hank Sartin, Time Out Chicago
