In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
Carl Fredricksen as a boy wanted to explore South America and find the forbidden Paradise Falls. About 64 years later he gets to begin his journey along with a Boy Scout named Russel by lifting his house with thousands of balloons. On their journey they make many new friends including a talking dog and figure out that someone has evil plans. Carl soon realizes that this evildoer is his childhood idol. Will they be able to defeat him and find Paradise Falls?
The rifle that Charles Muntz uses is an 1874 Sharps, a very popular model with buffalo hunters of the American Wild West, and the procedure he uses to load, aim, and fire the weapon is accurate. (His use of shot-shells in a long-range rifle, however, is questionable at best.) See more »
Carl's house starts flying at the moment when he releases the balloons from the chimney; assuming that all balloons were already inflated and stored inside the house, this should have made the house float hours before already, regardless of whether they are inside or outside the house. However, it appears the balloons were in a giant sack in the backyard, and could have either been tethered down securely, or compressed to reduce lift. See more »

Honestly, I found the DVD of this film in my house and decided to give it a watch as I had nothing better to do. Truth is I really should have made the time before.
Although I enjoy all the other Disney/pixar movies, I am at that teenage age where I mainly seek Violence, sex and gore. Thankfully my teenage boredom did me a big favour in helping what this fantastic masterpiece. This film was so fantastically deep, meaningful and moving beyond relief, as soon as I switched it off I rang my grandparents to tell them I love them.
It should be made necessary that everyone everywhere should see this film and I think the world would be a much better place - it really is that good.
