WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) is doing his job on Earth in 2775, picking up garbage but his curiosity often delays his work as he finds fascinating objects. The robot finds interesting items like a Rubik’s Cube, an old video tape of “Hello Dolly” (he loves the music from the film) and popping paper. When he sees a couple singing to each other in “Hello Dolly”, he realizes he is lonely.
Soon Eve enters (WALL-E calls her Eva) as a probe droid, sent to earth to search for plant life. The earth has been through an obvious catastrophe and the present day humans are dwelling in space, hoping to eventually return to earth. Lonely WALL-E falls for Eve and introduces her to the fun of popping the popping paper and watching “Hello Dolly” on video. She likes him too but soon the space ship which returns for her leads them both from earth, but will their destinies remain entwined?
This is a cute story with several humorous moments and the audience of all ages I screened it with seemed to genuinely enjoy it. There are no scenes which are overly intense, the worse being when it momentarily appears a main robot might have passed on. Pixar always does a great job with the animation and we happily award “WALL-E” our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. Take your family on this exciting adventure with WALL-E – it is a trip you will not soon forget.
