Please tell me I’m not the only one who cried like a hungry baby during the first 15 minutes of Up.  The movie goes a little something like this: by tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn’t alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has inadvertently become a stowaway on the trip. Hilarity and very touching moments ensue.
