"A couple of good reviews got me out in the rain to see this film and frankly I wish I hadn't bothered. Perhaps its the Disney effect or just that Pixar have lost it, but this is a tired rehash of traditional Amercian cartoon themes that never really got off the ground.
Disney demand cute kid, cute animals,funny voices and things to productise in abundance, forgetting the need for a strong script. Up is no different.
No clever dialogue or interesting characterterisations beyond behaps the dogs. If you like watching your dog poo on the pavement and buy it toys then this is probably the cartoon for you. It's a great shame because Pixar can be good, but this is below standard. One to take the kids to, but don't expect too many laughs for the grown-ups."
