"WALL-E" is a futuristic film that depicts Earth covered with garbage, uninhabitable because of man's destructive habits and rampant consumerism. It's lifeless except for a trash-collecting robot named WALL-E. While this doesn't sound like a smart premise for a children's film, young and old viewers alike will fall for the lovelorn robot as he travels into space to follow his sweetheart, the robot EVE. Along the way, he discovers how human existence has changed.
