Elling has lived with his mother all his life. Mom is the practical one, while Elling ponders the more theoretical aspects of life. He spends his time in their apartment reading books and looking at the neighbours through the living room window. Elling doesn?t seem to need to be around others like most people. That?s why Elling is less than enthusiastic when his mother suddenly decides to take her son on a beach vacation to Spain. Reluctantly, Elling agrees ? after all, a lady at Mom?s age needs a good man by her side. But what Elling refuses to realize is that Mom is not only old, but also sick. Very sick. On her last vacation she tries to get Elling to see that life is bigger than their living room.

Blessed by unique filming, you are convinced to its reality & affirmation. The brilliancy of its actors gives Brilliante Mendoza a bunch of treasured nutrients on his film. - J.E

Richard D (es) wrote: The first Pixar film and the first entirely computer animated feature film has been rather overshadowed by the films that followed it, notably it's own sequels both of which were incrementally better. Watching this now, you can see how much they still couldn't quite do technically ... the dog is particularly not that impressive. What does stand up well even 20 years later is the amazing world building and a story line that is equally engaging to kids and adults ... something Pixar has consistently achieved.

There really aren't that many laughs in this movie, I think it tries to focus too much on the plot, and then when the laughs finally do come near the end, they're too over the top and they have nothing at all to do with the plot. Entertaining start though, but I just wish I laughed more.
