Took my mother to see "Up" today. More like "Down".
Not exactly a "feel good" flick. Rather sad in fact, but good just the same.
I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I teared up a bit.
It was overly long and I could have done without the giant birds (go ahead insert your own joke here, you know you want to) or the talking dogs, (insert a joke here too. I know I could), but those seemed to be crowd pleasers.
More crowd pleasing to me, at least, was the voice of Ed Asner. Now why can't Pixar get cracking on a computer animated Mary Tyler Moore, that's what I want to know.
