Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (90 ):
Kids say (199 ):

This Pixar film manages to be moving, entertaining, and thought-provoking. Much of the credit is due to director/co-writer Andrew Stanton, who fills the film with tributes to silent films and classic musicals. (Kudos to Burtt for adding such emotion to WALL-E's squeaks and bleeps.)

Early scenes in which WALL-E wonders at the waste left behind by humans are especially poignant, particularly when juxtaposed against the massive pile of waste he's meant to get rid of. Ultimately, the movie's pro-planet message is refreshing, but its depictions of fat people and hoverchair users as lazy and greedy should prompt further discussion with your children.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
