Friday Favorites: Wall-E the Movie...Kind of Forgot How Sweet

For our trip to Portland recently, we bought the movie Wall-E so Coop could enjoy it on the trip.  One night in the hotel, we ended up all cuddling in bed for family movie night.  What a treat.

Wall-E (Single-Disc Edition)

I had forgotten just how sweet this movie is and the great message it provides.  Have you seen it?  There is no villain really (well, the captain does face a mutiny by Auto, the computer), and in the end, good prevails (which almost always happens in Disney movies anyhow...but just sayin').  The main characters (robots...intertwined with a few cartoon humans part way through) give us a great picture of friendship, sacrifice, kindness, innocence, doing what's right, staying focused on the task at hand, and perseverance.

A few moments required a little explaining for Cooper along with a comforting squeeze, but there was nothing too tragic or severe that would scar his sweet little mind for life...everything could be easily reasoned and understood.

Which I have to say, you think all those Disney movies all look so kid friendly...until you have a kid.  Geesh, when you get to thinking, there are only a couple appropriate for Coop at age 2...and I would argue even ages 3 and 4, maybe even 5 or 6 are a bit young too.  What with scantily clad ladies romping around, scary villains with evil looking purple and green faces, violence and fighting, tragic and terrifying moments...visuals that as a child would completely disrupt and aid in forming your sense of safety and understanding of what is good in this goodness.  A little dramatic, but goodness.  Can you tell I have an opinion?

When it comes to a great snuggle and movie time with my buddy, Wall-E gets two thumbs up from me.  We just watched it again today.  Definitely one of my favorites.

Just for kicks and giggles (as this is by no means a sponsored post), I looked around on Amazon and found quite the array of Wall-E products.  Sometimes I just get a big kick out of virtual shopping on just never know what you will find...cracks me up.  You can click on any picture in this post to get to it's listing on Amazon.  Enjoy!
