Grumpy old man+ fat kid = Great Movie

Nick surprised me today by coming home from work early. Actually he scared me to death- I was just getting out of the shower, when I heard a knock at the door and then heard it open! Fortunately the mysterious man walking in was my husband but my heart was going a million beats a minute. After my heart rate came back to normal Nick and I decided to catch a matinee movie and go see UP. From the commercials I thought this was another cute Disney/Pixar kids movie about a grumpy old man and a fat kid, I was crying within the first 15 minutes and continue to tear up throughout the next hour and a half. My family will tell you that I cry at everything (which is true) but even Nick got a little moist in the eyes. This had one of the most heart warming plots I've seen in a long time and for a kids movie there was a lot of depth in the storyline. The humor was great and the computer graphics were flawless. I highly recommend this movie, if you get a chance to see UP tell me what you think. This is defiantly my favorite Pixar movie (sorry Finding Nemo but you've been replaced). Afterwards we grabbed a quick dinner at Panda Express (mmmmm Orange Chicken) and I went to Enrichment while Nick watched the LA Lakers vs Orlando Magic game. Overall I'd say this was a great afternoon out.


  1. aw this made me really excited to go see it!! I told Steve he'd cry because Nick cried :)

  2. Don't worry, you're not a lone I cried a bit myself. I was surprised at how sad the begining was. I took Danee to it when we went and she was glued to the "puppy! Puppy!"
