Audience Reviews for Paperman

Serendipity in New York. Excellent Short Film! Paperman is the perfect mix of laughter, romance and fantasy. The black and white style is visually stunning! The animators have outdone themselves with the classic style that almost makes the technology disappear, which is a wonderful change of pace in the 3-D crazy animated film department. This is one of the best pieces of animation to come out of the Walt Disney Company in years! An animated short that follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him.

I do not understand why it won an OSCAR, Cute at best.

Up for best animated short at the Oscars, and this is my favorite. Probably the best "romantic" film I've seen in years. It's funny, sweet, and just beautiful to look at. Saw this in the theater with "Wreck it Ralph" and have watched it multiple times at home, it's just a flawless animated short.
