From Disney Pixar comes "UP", a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredericksen, 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 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. From the Academy Award-nominated director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.), Disney Pixar's Up invites you on a hilarious journey into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth.

I saw "Up" a couple of weeks ago with my son and grandchildren, and I feel it's one of the best animated films I've ever seen! It's funny, unpredictable, and heart-warming. I will buy the DVD as soon as it comes out.

I loved the movie. I saw it on Father's Day while I was hiding from my family. No, too much of a good thing is NOT a good thing. I digress. Funny, I missed all the Viagra references. Guess some of us are a little more sensitive to that issue than others. I'll buy the DVD when it comes out and watch it again.

Hoon is talking through his hat, as usual! There were NO Viagra references in that movie, Ducky!

Good to have you back to the Blogosphere! You've been SORELY missed!

GOAT.....you missed it again. Even the title is a subliminal tip of the hat to one of the best meds of all time!

Shame on you, HOONOWSKI! You'll be the first blogger to get yourself kicked off the MOVIE REVIEWS!!

Don't fuss at Hoon too much Goat. He's obviously a little touchy on the ED issue and sees references to Viagra where none exist. It's a perfectly normal psycological response to a physiological problem.

Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh! Thank you for the enlightening explanation, Dr. Ducky!

Reading the entertaining comments posted here made me curious enough to take my youngest to see this movie. At no point in time did I see any Viagra references. I do have to agree with goat lady and Dr. Ducky on that one! The movie itself was okay. I however did not like the beginning. It was just too sad!

Sorry, teach, there are those of us only too aware that "till death do we part" is a fact of life. Eventually you learn to accept the death of a spouse and move on. The little old man in the picture was finally able to do that - in a big way. It's actually reassuring, though it's just a cartoon. The message is that you shouldn't just give up on life when the love of your life passes away - There are still people out there to love (the little boy) and a contribution you can make (saving that big, silly bird!).

There's also the idea that, even if you're beset with problems (construction threatens to wipe out his home), you can tackle these issues with creativity and determination (thus the balloons!!).

I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this sweet little film!

And, yes, there was NO VIAGRA!!! Hahaha! That was just a "Hoonerism"!
