Critic Review - The New Republic

It is a story about love and loneliness, perseverance and triumph, the possibilities and pitfalls of human existence. That this story is told by way of the exploits of a tiny, faceless robot only makes it more extraordinary.

Jeremy Shirland

Pure Hollywood commercialized cheese. The only redeeming factors were the great animation and the love-interest "Eve" character. Face it though, she would NEVER go for Wall-E, who looks like he was the rejected son of the robot in "Short Circuit."

Jeremy, is there like, something wrong with you?

Please. There are plenty more redeeming factors in this movie that no other film this year could touch.

Um, what? I don't think robots particularly care about physical attractiveness. Plus, he makes her laugh. Always a plus in a relationship.

And this was the best movie I've seen since The Godfather (albeit in a completely different way.)

Don't worry about Jeremy. Some people just enjoy being contrarian.

I'm guessing Jeremy is single not to mention bitter. It's one thing to be shallow, but it's a whole other kind of shallow when you throw robots into the mix..."she would NEVER go for Wall-E." What, did you find other robots in the movie to be more attractive?

She wouldn't go for WALL-E? What? WALL-E is so darn adorable that I'm going to leave my girlfriend for him.
