Characters: Carl Fredricksen, Ellie, Russell, Charles Muntz, Dug, Beta

The film is about Carl Fredricksen, who met Ellie, the love of his life, when they were very young. They share the same interest in exploration as their hero, famed explorer Charles Muntz.
Carl and Ellie grow old together, keeping since kids their dream of a house in Paradise Falls, in South America. Just as they seem to finally be able to take their trip, Ellie dies of old age. After a long time Carl decided to keep his promise to Ellie, and uses his old professional supplies to create a makeshift airship using tens of thousands of helium balloons which lift his house off its foundations. But in the porch was Russell, a Wilderness Explorer who was trying to help Carl to earn his final merit badge.
Finally, Carl and Russell start to understand to each other and, with a little help of a big storm, they find themselves in Paradise Falls. They live a lot of adventures and also met Charles Muntz, who is not like Carl think it would be.
This film is hillarious, but it also have details that make the story more 'real'. The sadness of Carl for loosing his wife is very touching.
It's perfect to see in family, because parents and kids will enjoy it!
