Is the movie "Up" scary?

How intense is this movie? My dd does not like the villains and was even a bit nervous with the action in Wall-E. How does Up compare?

No, I didn't to d it scary at all, but my DD5 didn't really get the storyline. It is actually sort of a tear jerker! I wish I had brought some tissues, but that's just me. The dog Dug was funny and cute though

My DD (almost 4) loved it - we've been twice! She was a little scared when they fly through a storm, and also during one of the scenes where the "bad dogs" were chasing them - but nothing too scary! Agree that there are some sad moments in the movie - but I think they went over DD's head.

Yes....

I took my son 4 1/2 to see it a few weeks ago. I heard it was good (sad) but appropriate for kids.

He was freaked out.

I think it was the dogs as they appear HUGE on the movie screen. He just wanted to go home.

Perhaps he is a wimp, but I really wanted him to enjoy the movie and I was sad that he didn't...

* For little toddlers, there was some parts that were scary! Are you seeing it in 3d? That might be a suggestion to exit out. There was some plane crashes and some dogs. Other than that it might be ok to let your toddler see it. It depends!

My DD6, who is not a fan of aggressive dogs, found the dogs extremely scary. She didn't enjoy the movie, and usually is a big movie fan.

Took kids age 11, 7, 2, 6 months to movie the other day, and I have to say the 2 year old was a little scared during the dog scenes. The movie did keep her attention though. The rest of the group liked the movie, a little sad in parts but all in all it was a great movie, would def. see it again!

Up

We took our two boys ages 4 and 18 months to see UP last weekend, and they both loved it. They weren't really scared of anything, but they are not easily frightened. It was a cute movie!

I will say there are some scenes that kids could find scary.

My 4 year old was a little scared of the dogs and did not really like it. He does love Wall-E and it never frightened him.

And in the poll, most people loved Up. Only 7 said they "hated it."

Different movies affect different people differently.

My 7-year-old didn't find it scary. I don't think he followed all of the story line though. But he has asked to see it again about a half-dozen times, so it worked on some level for him!

Right; I posted my thread so the OP could make her own judgement given all the opinions. If I wanted to sway her to my opinion, there were certainly more flame-retardant way of doing it.

I don't understand why people get so pissy when my opinion differs from what's popular . Well, I *do* understand, it's the Dis...

Both of my kids loved the movie. DD(8) said it had a lot of sad parts but still loved it. My DS(5) didn't pick up on most of the sad parts. He likes Dug. I thought it was sad but also a great movie for the whole family.

My son tends to be scared of loud/intense, but he's seen it twice now and likes it. I went with him the 2nd time and just thought it was sad and dark and depressing. There wasn't enough happy payback for the sad, IMO (and I usually love every Pixar movie). My husband, however, thinks I'm nuts and my kid only seemed to really pay attention to the talking dog and squawking bird.

*spoilers*
He also didn't seem to catch on that when you fall from a blimp or an airplane, you die. I thought pushing a guy out of a blimp and letting him plummet to his death was a little much... but then my son said something about how they pushed him off the blimp and you could tell that in his mind, it wasn't pushing him to his death. And in that same scene, 3 dogs obviously die in plane crashes and he didn't seem to get that either - he just keyed in on the joke part leading up to that. So I'd definitely say the dark undercurrents are lost on the littler ones. Thankfully. And like someone else said - it is rated PG.
