GO see UP!
It's rare these days to find a movie that is truly wonderful. Just when you think that Hollywood couldn't go any lower, you see a movie like this and it reminds you that there are people out there who still "get it." As in, they understand what life is about.
Go see "UP!" Kurt and I had a date tonight and went to see this awesome movie, and then we had sushi. So much fun! Warning: this movie is deeper than expected. As Kurt put it, "Who even thinks up storylines like this?!" You will laugh, cry (trust me), and walk away completely satisfied that you just spent money on a movie ticket. And these days, that's rare.
One of my favorite quotes from the movie comes from the little boy, Russell: "My dad and I would sit on a curb and count cars. I'd count the red ones, and he'd count the blue ones. I really like that curb. You know, it probably sounds pretty boring, but I remember the boring stuff the most."
Support this precious movie. You won't be sorry!
