Synopsis from DVD Cover:
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, the curious and lovable WALL-E discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. Join them and a hilarious cast of characters on a fantastic journey across the universe.

Quick Review:
I didn't think I'd like "WALL-E," because the trailers weren't all that compelling and I'm not a real robot fan. I'm learning in my old age that not only can you not judge a book by its cover, you better not judge a movie by its trailer. "WALL-E" is more than just the cute Pixar flick we saw previewed before every kids movie last summer - it's a real, honest-to-god sci-fi movie with a subtle, sweet heart that is not quite what's expected.

We humans made a big mess of the planet, and there's one little robot left to clean it up. WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) spends his days compacting the garbage and gross stuff our kind left behind generations earlier when it had become too much of a trash heap and his nights watching old musicals and hanging out with his friend the cockroach. Humans have relocated to spaceships and become Sumo wrestler-sized blobs that sit in hover chairs, eat, and shop, but they're still hoping to re-colonize the home planet - they're just waiting for a sign that Earth is inhabitable again. Enter EVE, a robot sent to Earth to seek out any indication that life can once again be sustained on the planet. She finds what she needs, but by then, WALL-E is in robot love, so when she heads back to her mother ship, her new beau follows - and quite possibly saves humanity in the process.

"WALL-E" is a brilliant movie, but it's a tough sell. One, nothing lends itself to being recreated as a plush toy. Two, there's virtually no dialogue for almost half the movie. Three, there's no catch phrase of pop culture references to speak of (unless "Hello, Dolly!" counts). In short, it seems at first glance like a marketing nightmare. I mean, sure, it's got the Pixar name going for it, but if the kids are bored, you're dead in the water. Or are you? I'm saying it right now - don't let your kids get bored watching this film. They may be a little confused by the speech-free opening, but keep them interested. It's worth it. Even if the overriding environmental message is a little hippie-skippy green, it's not like it's not true, and there's a lot to be said for a film that can make two appliances a convincing love story. And of course it goes without saying that the animation is amazing, but I said it anyway.

The 3-disc Special Edition is loaded down with Extras, Deleted Scenes, and more. There's some Audio Commentary from director Andrew Stanton, a short called "Presto" (I guess this short played with "WALL-E" in theaters. It's about a magician.), and a featurette on sound with sound engineer Ben Burtt called "Animation Sound Design: Building Worlds from The Sound Up." Also, "Robots" lets us in on the "lives" of our electronic friends, there's a Behind the Scenes bit that's broken into six sections covering everything conceivable, an we can learn all about Pixar. Oh, you also get some interactive games for the kids and a Digital Copy of the film.

In Conclusion:
Just see it. Whether you have kids, know kids, or just like robots, "WALL-E" really is a classic, not just an animated classic, but an all-around unforgettable 90+ minutes of film.
