WALL·E is the last robot left on an Earth that has been overrun with garbage and all humans have fled to outer space. For 700 years he has continued to try and clean up the mess, but has developed some rather interesting human-like qualities. When a ship arrives with a sleek new type of robot, WALL·E thinks he's finally found a friend and stows away on the ship when it leaves.
The story of a little robot who falls in love and ends up on a journey through space to save the human race. Simple enough.
If the worst thing our species can look forward to is being fat slobs lazying around in space, then why should we care about the post-apocalyptic future of Wall-E?
The film would have been preferable for me if it had taken place entirely in the apocalyptic wasteland.
His attempts at wooing Eve are utterly endearing, particularly his attempts at impressing her with the various trinkets that populate his trailer. And the fire extinguisher-aided flight/dance through space is just spellbinding.
