Be Here Now: Up

Robert and I just signed up for Netflix and watched our first DVD tonight. We watched the animated film Up and we really loved it. The surprising thing about the movie was how one of the story lines in it seemed to mirror our own relationship. Robert and I could be a real life Carl and Ellie Fredricksen!

If you can't see the embedded YouTube video above, follow this link to YouTube to watch it there. I promise that it doesn't give away too much of the movie if you watch this short clip. In fact, it might make you want to run out and rent the movie yourself. I should warn you that the parts of the movie that reference Carl's and Ellie's relationship really brought tears to my eyes!

I think everyone wants to have a relationship like this in their lives and it is wonderful that this warm, funny and touching story line is part of this children's movie.

It's cheesy, I know, but I give Up two thumbs up!
