* ShootTheShaggyDog: Charles' life becomes this. He starts off as a brilliant inventor and famous explorer, goes to this paradise and brings back a skeleton of an exotic creature, only to be called a fraud, be stripped of his title, and when he goes to clear his name, he gets [[spoiler: stuck there for decades, loses a lot of his dogs, spoiler:goes completely nuts, and when he finally has a chance to bring back proof he ends up getting killed. And even if he ''did'' succeed, everyone he was trying to prove himself to would be long dead, and the modern day community would condemn him for killing or capturing an endangered species, and for his antiquated GreatWhiteHunter tendencies]].

* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: WW1 era fighter planes whose guns seem to otherwise act like normal weapons shoot darts. The in-world logic is that the planes were designed for a NonLethalKO of Kevin, given that we see them earlier in the traps. Interestingly, in the climax they go to the detail of showing the copper shell ejecting and damage to the house from [[spoiler:Muntz]]'s rifle.
** In a case of RealityIsUnrealistic, one model of WW1 airplane was deployed with darts. Just instead of darts-guns, the darts were to be dropped from above in the hope of deflating and crashing the enemies airships.[[http://www.cracked.com/article_19349_the-top-8-unintentionally-hilarious-vehicles-ridden-into-war.html]]

** Ellie means "shining light", which leads to FridgeBrilliance in the scenes following her death. When Carl is alone in bed and later by the table, the sun is shining where Ellie used to be, literally symbolizing how the "light" of his life is gone.

''Up'' is {{Pixar}}'s tenth film and their first full-length [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDMovie 3-D film]]. It has the honor of being only the second animated film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, following ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''; it's also the first fully-CGI film to be honored with the nomination. While the film didn't win ''that'' award, it did get Pixar another Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, as well as the Oscar for Best Original Score for composer Michael Giacchino.

For information about the short ''Partly Cloudy'', which played before the film, see PixarShorts. For the unrelated Granada/BBC documentary series, see ''Series/{{Up}}''.

* BookEnds: When Carl takes off right in front of the Shady Oaks nurses, he shouts to them, "So long, boys!" [[spoiler:In the [[PixarShorts short]] ''George and A.J.'', when he comes back in the Zeppelin and "bumps" into the nurses again, he shouts to them "Afternoon, boys!"]]

* MeaningfulName: The movie title itself. It's literally what the plot is about, going up in the air in a house raised by balloons, and it's where Ellie wanted her house to be above the falls, but it's also Carl's character arc (coming up out of depression and realizing life is still worth living). Also consider the fact Carl seemed ready to die before Russell appeared, so that his whole trip was "going to join Ellie", and the symbolism of going up into the heavens...

* AMinorKidroduction: The film opens with Carl and Ellie meeting as little kids, and it ''does'' set up the rest of the movie... by showing how important they were to each other, and their united dream of seeing the wilds of South America.

* MovingBuildings: Carl Fredricksen's house, when tied to a bunch of helium balloons.
** Ironically, this means the developers technically succeeded in evicting him and clearing the lot. If only they'd thought to just suggest that to begin with...

Added DiffLines:

** When Ellie first appears, she mentions "seeing" a puppy and a storm. On the way to Paradise Falls, the house ends up in a storm, and a puppy could refer to Muntz's dogs, but most likely it could refer to Dug, the first dog Carl and Russell come across.


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Carl tries to stop a construction worker from touching his mailbox and bashes him over the head with his cane hard enough to draw blood. Carl has this reaction and retreats inside, knowing [[CorruptCorporateExecutive the real estate boss]] will use this as an excuse to take his land from him.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Muntz, right before he falls to his death from thousands of feet in the air.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: Carl's plan to get the house to Paradise Falls succeeds eventually, [[spoiler:but in saving the house from being burned by Muntz, he gave up Kevin, angrily sent Dug away and turned Russell against him.]] When they finally get there, Russell angrily dumps his sash at Carl's feet, saying he doesn't want it any more, and sits down on a rock a good way from the house. Carl enters the house, and just sits in his chair in silence, not really knowing what to do next. [[spoiler:Until he sees Ellie's adventure book...]]

Not to be confused with the 1976 Russ Meyer film of the same name, which is... not for children to say the least.

* CoolGuns: Charles Muntz fires a Sharps 1863. It was an antiquated rifle even in the 20s-30s, but still popular in big game hunting at that time, so it's not surprising an old school guy like Muntz would be using it.
