Girl Seeing 'Up' Creates More Touching Story Than 'Up' Itself

The emoticon with the tear time! Here's probably the saddest thing you'll read today: Pixar grants girl's dying wish to see 'Up'. I don't want to spoil every heart-wrenching detail, but basically, as the title implies, a 10-year-old girl is dying of cancer, her mom contacts Pixar, Pixar flies out an employee with a DVD, and the girl dies 7 hours later. That's right, she doesn't even secretly make a copy of the disc and upload it to the internet; this story is pure, gut-wrenching sentimentality.

Sample quote: "I’m ready [to die], but I’m going to wait for the movie." And it only gets sadder. It's Fanboys for real, and obviously much better.

(Thanks for making everyone weep uncontrollably, Kelly.)
