What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL*E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE.
I have to admit I went into this movie expecting another hysterical environmental scare tactic. What I did not expect was a love story… the sheer joy of holding a hand, the spark of that first kiss… OK, it’s two robots, but there was serious character development here!
I also didn’t expect the we-are-headed-into-fat-lazy-people (not sure headed is the right term) aspect of the movie. I know what you are thinking… “What??? There’s a moral in this story???” This is a Disney movie, people! That used to be the norm with them.
If you are looking for a sweet movie with some good points to talk to your kids about… this is a movie worth seeing.
