With Disney PIXAR's newest release 'UP' they've created a movie so beautiful in terms of execution and plot, that you should really stop reading this review and go see it immediately. The movie is about love, loss and hope -- all while remaining screamingly funny and action-packed. UP will be loved by children, but even moreso by adults. Heed my words - don't read any further, just go see it.

UP is the story of 78-year-old Carl Frederickson, a balloon vendor at a theme park whose childhood hero, Charles Muntz, found a fabled lost continent. Muntz is discredited when scientists claim the skeleton of a giant bird Muntz brought back is a fake. Muntz declared he would bring back a live bird as proof, and was never heard from again. Carl, facing eviction from his home and interrment to a seniors' village, ties thousands of balloons to his home and heads off into the wild blue yonder in search of the fabled lost continent, Paradise Falls.

While UP is whimsical children's fare - it feels like the first of its kind to target the seniors with its moral messages. There is still plenty here for kids - dogs that can talk because of special collars, gaily-colored giant birds named 'Kevin', and physical humor. UP, however, keeps the laughs on the level, not resorting to scatalogical gross-outs to bring in the laughs. It feels like a Disney movie used to feel -- funny, but wholesome.

Adults will love the movie more because it has such heart and its characters feel so human that they will gladly believe that a house festooned with balloons can and should fly. Visually, the film is gorgeous. It's worth seeing in 3D but even without the film should be a pleasure to watch. Keep the 3D glasses as a souvenir - this is film you won't want to miss.

This film has it all: drama, action, comedy, romance - it is, simply put, one of the best films I've ever seen.
