"If you buy this product, you just got ripped off. This is a cheap Brizillian rip-off of the Pixar film "Up". Unlike the inspiring tale "Up", this movie is a pure poop. It is as original as plagerism and as enjoyable as cancer.
Really $13 for this piece of %^&*. I can think of a million things you can buy instead of this.
If you like this, you might also enjoy ratatolong (about secret agent rat chiefs stealing receipies), little cars, little bee movie, little panda fighter (about a panda who wants to be a ballerina and a boxer).
Not I only gave it one star because I can't give it 0 star"

"I can't believe this rip-off movie is legal. This is NOT the 2009 movie "Up!" by Disney / Pixar. Instead, this is an awful rip-off created by a Brazilian company Vídeo Brinquedo and created with a cover and theme which so closely resembles "Up!" to be nearly identical in many ways. If you look at the other movies this Brazilian company has put out it is clear they are in the deliberate business of stealing other peoples' movies in order to get quick cash. For example, when Ratatouille came out (a cute movie about a rat in France being a chef) Video Brinquendo promptly came out with Ratatoing with a very similar theme. If any US company tried this kind of activity I have no doubt the lawyers would be almost immediately knocking on their door.
Even worse, for me, this movie is being distributed in the US by Gaiam. Yes, Gaiam, the yoga-products company which promotes respect and healthy support. I was so aghast by this idea that I contacted Gaiam directly to find out if they really were promoting this DVD or if I'd made a mistake somehow in researching the DVD. They acknowledged that they are the ones actively promoting and selling the What's Up DVD in the US. So Gaiam, which I have supported for MANY years and had great respect for, is actively pushing what I consider to be plagiarized material. That upsets me to the point that I'm divesting myself of my Gaiam products, ceasing my promotions of them and of course speaking out against this DVD. I want to make sure NOBODY is fooled into buying this product thinking it is the "Up!" movie. It is NOT."
Not a bad pick if you love awful movies.

"If you can get past your anger at this not being Pixar's "Up," (and really, if you were fooled, you've only got yourself to blame) there's actually a fairly enjoyable terrible movie in here. If you're the MST3K sort who enjoys lovable trash, you could probably do worse."
