A feisty septuagenarian teams with a fearless wilderness ranger to do battle with a vicious band of beasts and villains in this computer-animated adventure scripted by Pixar veteran Bob Peterson and co-directed by Peterson and MONSTERS, INC. director Peter Docter. Carl Fredricksen (voice of Ed Asner) is a 78-year-old balloon salesman. His entire life, Carl has longed to wander the wilds of South America. Then, one day, the irascible senior citizen shocks his neighbors by tying thousands of balloons to his home and finally taking flight. But Carl isn't alone on his once-in-a-lifetime journey, because stowed away on his front porch is an excitable eight-year-old wilderness explorer named Russell. Later, as the house touches down on the world's second largest continent, Carl and his unlikely traveling companion step outside to discover that not only is their new front lawn considerably larger, but that the predators therein are much more ferocious than anything they ever faced back home.
I loved buying this. I am soooo glad I found the offer in Overstock. Loved the movie in the first place and then to have the opportunity to buy not only the regular DVD but also the Blu-Ray copy, the Digital copy, as well as the extras disc in the same package---that was pure indulgence. This kind of set should be the way they sell all future DVDs. Covers the spectrum of players now available. The digital copy for my laptop/extenal hard drive for when I am traveling; the Blu-Ray for the PS3 when my nephew wants to watch it, and the regular DVD for the other players in the house. And the price was fantastic. I mean, why would anybody just buy the regular copy when you would be paying the almost the same price for this set? This DVD set is a steal!
Arrived fast in perfect condition; great price for this since it is the 4-disc combo. This movie has a great story line; the beginning is very touching and the movie evolves from there. My daughter and son (13 & 11 y/o) absolutely enjoyed this movie. We saw it in theaters and rented it when it released to DVD. I think that this movie would appeal to children, parents and grandparents too. Another excellent Disney-Pixar creation.
