Spoilers/Do not read if you plan to watch this movie...
The storyline is awesome, so heartwarming. Basically this movie plays a lot with your emotions and senses. It made me want to cry, laugh, cheer, scream all in one little hour. It starts out with Carl sitting in a theater watching his idol(Charles Muntz), from there he goes and ends up finding his childhood soon to be sweetheart, who just like Carl also plans to be an Aviator and go on wild adventures to South America in search for Paradise Falls.Then you are taken on a silent overview of Carl and his friend and how they end up dating,getting married,all the way up to spending their old life together. Ellie (Carl's wife) has always been upbeat and energetic towards new adventures, where as Carl is shy and somewhat cautious.One day Carl finally decides to fulfill his promise to go on an adventure , by surprising Ellie with a present (tickets to South America) but unfortunately she dies before he can even show them to her...So Carl is left alone widowed, rattling around in a big house surrounded by skyscrapers.
So under pressure to sell his house to developers.Old somewhat grumpy Carl makes the unexpected decision to fly his house,with the use of a thousand helium filled balloons tied to his house, in pursuit to go on an adventure to have his house land on Paradise Falls in South America.But an unexpected stowaway is found while up in the sky...
sorry about the 2 spoilers >.< ....->
Russell (voiced by Jordan Nagai), an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer determined to earn every merit badge available.
They end up making it to South America but unfortunately land at quiet a distance from Carl's desired Paradise Falls location.The whole movie,basically, takes place on their trip to walk to the place where Carl wants to place his house. On the way they encounter a curious looking bird and hilarious dog, along with some unexpected bad guys , or should i say ''man & his hounds''...
Anyways All-in-All Up was truly one of the best Pixar movies out there it ties with Wall-E and Toy Story in my opinion.
