One Up For Up

Disney/Pixar - Up screenshot (2009)For the very first time the Cannes Film Festival will be launched with the screening of an animation movie: Disney/Pixar's Up, a fanciful tale of an old man who ties balloons to his house to make it airborne. The festival opens on 13 May; Up will be released in the US on 29 May. Nice timing. Brits must wait until 16 October for Up's release. No hardship so far as I'm concerned. While the animation of these movies is excellent, the cornball American humour of most of them leaves me distinctly underwhelmed. Now, if they got Woody Allen to write their scripts....
