I loved Cars too! Really, I loved nearly everything Pixar has done. The only two of their films that I liked (as opposed to loved) are probably Wall*E and A Bug's Life.

I finally saw it and coming out of the theater, driving and looking at the cars on their tracks (the streets) and the layouts of the streets and shapes of buildings - and how OVERWEIGHT all the people were, everywhere, so many people eating - it was remarkable to "see" that all suddenly through the eyes of the artists.

My daughter and I disagreed about one thing - I thought it was way too inorganic and unrecognizable, and confusing and disturbing, for children under about 12. She was sure kids five and up would be comfortable with the whole movie. But Im definitely "old school" when it comes to that sort of thing.

I saw it on July 4 with my son. It was no where near my favority Pixar film. The story was good but it's a kids film. Why do they insist on trying to make everything so deep now? My favorite Pixar films are Monsters, Inc. and Cars. They were great movies with a lesson but it wasn't shoved down your throat. I don't know if I'll even see Wall-e again. It was just sort of boring to us. And I was really looking forward to seeing it. It was well done and I liked the characters of Wall-e and Eve. Just not my favorite of their offerings.

My son is 5 and my daughter 10 and they both loved it and 'got' most of the stories involved. Son saying how WALL-E wanted to be loved and going awwww at his reaction when he held 'hands' with EVA. Daughter commenting on how lazy the people had gotten and how fat that made them.

Neither missed much. They didn't even miss the Rubiks cube as part of the treasures. Of course that could be because I have one as a treasure too. haha

I watched Wall-E a couple of weeks ago on my computer. I would have paid to see it too. This was my 2nd Pixar film(I think). I saw Bug's Life also. I truly enjoyed Wall-E. It was one "feel good" movie. I haven't seen one of those in quite some time.

Saw "Wall-E" this afternoon with my daughter-in-law and grandchildren. The three-year-old fell asleep, and I almost did too. It did seem to drag a bit in parts.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie and especially the love story between Wall-E and Eva. The rest, however, was a sad commentary on where our world seems to be headed.

Gee, I wonder what Al Gore thought of this one?
