CNN is reporting that the highly prestigious spot of opening The Cannes Film Festival was entrusted to a Pixar film, and the animation studio did not disappoint.
The audience (who traditionally will either whistle or slam thier seats to show thier dislike for a film) did little but cheer the movie and declare that Pixar is now 10 for 10.
Variety's Todd McCarthy, who attended the viewing, said "The film is a captivating odd-couple adventure that becomes funnier and more exciting as it flies along. The two leading men are 78 and 8 years old, and the age range of those who will appreciate the picture is even a bit wider than that."
It looks like we are in for a great treat from Pixar on May 29th.
