Didn't know where this should go, but damn, heart wrenching story...

California girl gets dying wish to see movie 'Up'
June 19, 2009, 2:04 PM EST

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Colby Curtin got her final wish.

The 10-year-old girl desperately wanted to see the new Disney-Pixar movie, "Up." But the cancer-stricken girl was too sick to go to a theater.

Thanks to a family friend who got in touch with the movie studio Pixar, an employee of the Emeryville-based company arrived at Colby's home with a DVD copy of the movie, The Orange County Register reported Friday. The girl died later that night.

Colby's mother, Lisa, said she had asked her daughter if she could hang on until the movie arrived.

"I'm ready (to die), but I'm going to wait for the movie," she said her daughter replied.

"Up" is the animated tale of a grumpy old man who, after his wife's death, tries to fulfill their joint dream of visiting South America by tying thousands of balloons to his house and floating away.

"When I watched it, I had really no idea about the content of the theme of the movie," Colby's mother told the Register. "I just know that word 'Up' and all of the balloons and I swear to you, for me it meant that (Colby) was going to go up. Up to heaven."

Colby, who was diagnosed with vascular cancer in 2005, saw previews for the film in April.

"It was from then on, she said, 'I have to see that movie. It is so cool,'" family friend Carole Lynch said.

But the girl's health began to deteriorate. On June 4, Curtin asked a hospice company to bring a wheelchair so that her daughter could go to a movie theater but the chair was not delivered over the weekend, Curtin said.

By June 9, Colby was too sick to go anywhere.

Another family friend, Terrell Orum, called both Pixar and Disney, which owns the animation studio. The message was received by Pixar officials, who agreed to send someone to Colby's house the next day with a copy of "Up" for a private screening, Orum said.

The employee arrived with the DVD, stuffed animals of characters and other movie memorabilia.

Colby was unable to open her eyes to see the movie so her mother described the scenes. When her mother asked if she enjoyed it, the girl nodded, Curtin said.

The Pixar employee left after the movie, taking the DVD, which has not been released. Lynch, who was with the family during the screening, said the employee's "eyes were just welled up."

A call to Pixar seeking comment was not immediately returned Friday.

Colby, with her parents nearby, died later that night.

Her mother said one of the memorabilia left by the Pixar employee was an "adventure book" based on a scrapbook that, in the movie, is kept by the wife of the main character.

"I'll have to fill those adventures in for her," Lisa Curtin said of her daughter.

Next movie I can't WAIT to see.

(Was a cartoon on Nickelodeon. My excuse: 5 year old daughter)






If anyone is aware of this series, I'm not pleased with the casting (namely the skinny Indian dude playing Zuko), but I'll get over it.

Elysium looks AWESOME!!! Neill Blomkamp is turning to be an awesome SCI FI director. And while he was tabed for the Halo movie that never happened, it sure influenced District 9 and most definitely Elysium.

Red 2 is a good movie. Definitely worth seeing. Victoria is both elegantly feminine and deliciously lethal. I can't get enough of that chick. A role model for women everywhere!

I saw The Way Way Back.

1. Characters are all big stereotypical tropes you've seen 1000 times before in movies:

- single mom who won't stand up for herself (until she does!)
- mom's jerky boyfriend who doesn't like her son - what a jerk!
- super-awkward kid with a heart of gold who just needs a wise, irreverent guy with tattoos and a goatee to loosen him up and empower him
- irreverent guy with tattoos and a goatee who is somehow not played by Ryan Reynolds, who would never in a million years befriend the awkward kid in real life but maybe sees something in the awkward kid that he sees in himself! so he gives him advice about girls
- quirky other people who work at the same place as the irreverent guy with tattoos and a goatee
- crazy mom who lives next door
- crazy mom's daughter, upon whom a crush! is developed
- Rob Corddry
- etc.

2. NOTHING HAPPENS, except maybe a couple people find themselves during that one summer they'll never forget

3. People don't act like this in real life

4. Nobody is likable

5. Michael Scott as a mean, humorless guy who wears terrible shirts and describes his car as a "cherry" doesn't work


It's the kind of movie that critics know they're supposed to like, so we're supposed to say we like, because I don't know why, because it wasn't entertaining.
