As a film critic who has spent too many summers viewing mediocre misfires and uninspired reinterpretations of TV shows, comic books and cult classics, it's immensely satisfying to recommend something as breathtakingly glorious as WALL-E.
I wonder a little what kids will make of the long silence of the first half followed by the disorienting mania of the second, but there's nothing here that's not wonderfully imagined and lovingly presented.
Some found ecological undertones too scolding. But the question of what happens to trash is a nice undertone - never overshadowing the endlessly renewable entertainment of "WALL-E's" plucky protagonist & carefully, comically choreographed physical humor.
