Funny, but the style is tough to get used to
25 October 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"George & A.J." is a little additional movie to Pixar's Oscar winning "Up". We follow the lives of the two men who were in charge of getting Carl to the nursery home early in the movie before he flies off with the help of all the balloons. The duo is interviewed by the press and, briefly afterward, back to normal in their jobs again. Or are they? Too bad, more seniors start stuff like that inspired by Carl now. The open mouth scenes were pretty funny and the ending is nice too with the two (3) heroes from the film back from their voyage. Still, I must say, I am surprised that this 3-minute short film is actually considered a Pixar movie. The animation style is so simple that it rather looks like a fan-made film. Had they done it in the same way like the movie or like "Dug's Mission", this would have been a lot better for sure. All in all, a decent watch for everybody who loved "Up", the rest can do without it.
