UP! Absolutely Fantastic!

So I went to see Disney Pixar's UP on Monday night with my husband, sister, friend, and her family (including 4 kids). I had heard rumblings of UP dealing with infertility issues but hadn't read anything specific. I'm not going to give you any details about the movie, there are lots of other places you can read a full summary mixed with others personal feelings on the movie. Here is my own lowly opinion of this movie...


I LOVE anything and everything Disney, always have, and this movie was no exception. UP is fantastic. Pixar does an excellent job threading how infertility effects every aspect of life, the initial let down, and a slightly warped view of the world. I must say that Carl and Ellie's love for one another despite all of their hardships definitely reminds me of John and I. I hope that wherever our infertility journey leads us we are as happy along the way as Carl and Ellie were. And honestly if our outcome is the same as Carl and Ellie's I really think we'll be ok. The last 6 years of being just us have been great! Plus we are able to love a ton of kids (without worrying about screwing them up for life) lol :)

I made it through UP without crying at all, I did get choked up a few times, but no tears. It really wasn't sad, these two people were so happy despite their circumstances and that to me was so inspiring! I highly recommend UP to any and all, it is an excellent movie!

Thanks for sharing your opinion about the movie! I've been wanting to see it, but some friends who know what we're going through told me I probably shouldn't see it right now. I, like you, am hopeful that Mr. B and I will remain happy in life and marriage regardless of the outcome of this IF journey. Your post has helped me make up my mind to go see the movie.

I want to see it! :) The kids went and saw it with mom, so now I'm jealous. Everyone has seen it but me. ;) Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We need to get together one of these nights and have a girls night out.
