'Up' Review By Josh
I would expect nothing less from Pixar ... Up is one of the best films of 2009.
While the plot is fairly predictable it is also a pretty inventive premise and works well as a backdrop on which to lay out its balance of wild adventure and hilarious slapstick. I laughed more at some of the jokes in this movie than I did at any adult comedy recently. It contains one of the funniest and most perfectly delivered jokes ever from Dug the dog regarding a squirrel.
And while I would expect nothing less from Pixar, Up delivers a profound life lesson about friendship, being true to your word, and the importance of placing value in relationships not things. Up is one of the best films of 2009.
