did anyone understand what a going on with Russell's parents? I get that he had a deadbeat dad but I didnt get what the deal was with his mom & why he called her by her name(was it Phillis?) Was that her in the final scene when he gets his pin?
It seemed to me he had a mother and an... "other mother."

And that his dad was pretty much a loser who was out of the picture. I do wonder what they all thought of Russell being missing for several days. And I really have to hand it to the engineers of Carl's house, not only could it withstand the stresses of ballooned flight (through a storm none-the-less!) but it also held up to a lot more stress than that!

I cried. and Cried.. Like Nathan Fillion said, This movie is the perfect robot test. If your date doesn't cry they are a robot.

Pixar does it again!

And was Russel Asian? My friends and I were having the longest debates. We were like no he isn't asian. He's just fat. That why his eyes are squinty.

Nope, he was meant to be an Asian character and voiced by a nine year old Asian actor named Jordan Nagai.

Yeah, my take on it was that Russell's dad had divorced his mom and now had a new family. Phyllis is his new wife. Going by Russell's good memories of when his dad was around, I think he was a good father while he was there, but now he's moved away and has a new family.

And yeah, Russell's meant to be Asian.

Funnily enough I had these two exact conversations with mr trampledamage - things that seemed really clear to me (he's Asian and the divorce) my husband didn't pick up on. Maybe it's a life experience thing

thanks all for clearing that up! And I too wondered if he might be Asian.
