It was not my intention to watch Wall-E. On the contrary, I was planning to watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars but due to the heavy rain and traffic, I was too late to catch the evening show.

So back to Wall-E, I really didn’t know what to expect considering that I didn’t read any reviews prior to watching the movie and the fact that it was a non-dialogue movie (well, almost none anyway). But to my surprise, the movie was really entertaining, charming and had a really good dose of humor.

It has been many years into the future and Wall-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) who has been busy cleaning up the earth’s toxic waste, meets a sleek, sophisticated robot named Eve. Naturally, the klutzy-shy Wall-E falls head-over-heels in love with Eve.

On the other hand, Eve realizes that Wall-E has stumbled upon a key for the return of mankind to Earth. She races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been awaiting word that it’s safe to go home) and lovesick Wall-E follows her all the way.

The plot is a refreshing change even for a computer-animated movie. Wall-E strikes me as this really adorable robot who’s been lonely with his pet cockroach for too long and is longing for affection (reminds me of Puss in Boots in Shrek doing his pitiful-look). The other characters are also equally funny, especially the cleaning robots who can’t stand the sight of dirt.

Another humorous part is the humans, who have been living in space for some hundred of years. They don’t do anything but sit, sleep and eat (explains why all of them are fat and cannot stand on their feet)!

But really, if you enjoyed watching, ‘Cars’, ‘The Incredibles’ or ‘Ratatouille’, you would definitely enjoy Wall-E.
