Partly Cloudy Movie Review

Funny, heartfelt, and charming. Those are just a few words to describe "Partly Cloudy." Director Peter Sohn brings animation to life following birds that deliver babies. Wether it's puppies, kittens, or just real human babies made from the clouds. One cloud in particular has trouble fitting in. All he can make with his magical powers are hurtful dangerous creatures that his bird transporter has trouble delivering because he gets so abused. What's so great about Pixar is they really know how to tug on your heart strings. With feature length films such as Wall-E, Toy Story trilogy, and Up (in which Partly Cloudy played before.) With shorts, it's no exception. There's a strong message in the short film that describes friendship in which I found inspiring. These short animated films are meant for kids and they send the right message to them even if they don't realize it. The animation in this short is breathtaking, and the music is superb. It really added to the emotional depth and I couldn't help but smiling. What's so great about Pixar, is that they don't need to have dialog in the short stories. In this movie all the characters did was grunt and make sound effects but it worked extremely well. In fact, I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much if it had dialog. Overall, if you're in the mood to feel uplifted and happy, checkout "Partly Cloudy." Just sit back, relax, and let that smile wash over your face.

Grade: A+
