The Disney- Pixar teaming scores yet again with this delightful, sometimes emotional fantasy about a cranky senior citizen (voice of Edward Asner, who's perfect for the part) who decides to fulfill a goal he had with his late wife.

To reach South America, he attaches numerous balloons to his house and heads aloft – with a young scout (voice of Jordan Nagal), who was on the traveler's porch at the wrong moment, as an unexpected companion.

Christopher Plummer, Delroy Lindo and John Ratzenberger ("Cheers") also are heard in the tale that truly has appeal for all ages. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray)
