In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In a distant, but not so unrealistic, future where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth's history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, EVE, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with EVE. WALL-E rescues EVE from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her "directive", EVE takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn't understand what has happened to his new friend, but, true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim EVE, but WALL-E, ...

BNL's president claims that people on board the Axiom are suffering from "bone loss" due to the effects of "microgravity". Numerous scenes establish that the (artificial) gravity on board is comparable to that on Earth, and certainly can't be called "microgravity", which is a near weightlessness. Also, no bone loss (let alone a "slight" one) can explain the change in physical appearance of humans shown in the movie, and "a few laps around a jogging track" wouldn't be enough to reverse such effects, not by a long shot. Of course, most of those mistakes, if not all, are probably intentional, to show the president's incompetence. See more »

The Pixar logo at the end has the lamp Luxo Jr's light bulb burn out, so WALL-E enters and replaces the light bulb. But as he leaves he accidentally knocks down the "R" in the logo, and he tries to cover it up by posing like an "R". See more »
Home video prints replace the closing Pixar logo with a custom logo. (see Crazy Credits) See more »
Just got back from a special sneak peek/advance screening of this movie, and I must say, Pixar continues to amaze. They just can't seem to make a bad move. Heck, they can't even make a mediocre movie. Now, I will admit, there have been a couple that I would classify as my "least favorite" of theirs, but even they were actually very, very good. This one, though...it just may take the cake. Ranks up there with the absolute best they have produced. Hysterical, emotional, meaningful -- this movie succeeds on every front! I am not going to get into spoilers or specific plot aspects, but I will say that I am almost definitely going to see this one again in the theater..and it will be worth every dime. Come Friday, be in line to see Wall-E. You don't want to miss it!
