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, ...
Even if Wall-E's cutter is a laser (it could be a plasma torch for all we know), it's obviously very different (at least in appearance) from the ship's ranging laser used for landing, because it produces a visible ray and melts any solid it touches. So it's perfectly natural that WALL-E wouldn't recognize the laser ranging dot for what it is, because there is no visible ray (as expected from a real laser), or any damage to the ground. See more »

In the closing Pixar logo, Luxo Junior's light bulb burns out after he flattens the letter "I". WALL-E enters and replaces the light bulb with a power-saving lamp, then accidentally knocks down the letter "R" as he tries to leave. He tries to cover it up by posing like an "R". See more »
I can't say enough about how good this movie, that you probably haven't read, so I'm going to keep this short.
This is the best thing out there in theater's right now, and might just be the best animated film of all time, whether you believe that or not, is your own opinion, but what Pixar has done here, can put companies like Dreamworks, Sony, and Blue sky to shame.
Wall E also may go down as the most lovable character ever to grace the movie screen, I praise Ben Burtt and Andrew Stanton, and the people at Pixar for what they did, and will continue to do.
This is why Pixar is the top studio in the world.
