Yes NQC DS1(3) didn't even realise Eva was a girl! lol

Hes got the toys of both and was making them hold hands but refering to them both as 'he'

lol

My DS2 (also 3) didn't really follow the story at all. I asked him afterwards, what happened, and he said 'I don't know'. He was enthralled, but I doubt he understood much of it ...

We only got to see 40 mins of it as DD was being naughty so we left. Tbh, I wasn't that bothered as I wasn't really enthralled by it. Waste of £28 imo.

DS2 just kept shouting 'home' at the top of his voice

until he fell asleep on my knee after 30 mins.

He is only 2 though.

DisenchantedPlusBump · 26/07/2008 19:45

They both love 'Wall-e' and 'evaaaaaa' though, just don't think they had a clue what the film was about!

glad it wasnt just me then

Prob still worth you going DG - few other films have interest for 4 children of varying ages

It has got a naughty word in it.

(There was a thread last week with a naughty word in the title and it seemed to upset people - but shhh! I think you have got away with it this time! )

dd (7) liked it, but didn't really get the subtle message. She just liked the characters, especially the insect that Wall.e hangs out with before Eve shows up.

I tried to talk to her about the environment stuff after, but it had clearly gone over her head, so I left it. 7's probably a bit young for creating ecowarriors... I'll try again when she's 8

I loved it and thought it was marvellous (and TheDullWitch, the end titles showed you the humans fixing things over the next several generations (with a little bit of help from some of the robots))

HumphreySmallPillow · 27/07/2008 01:37

DH and I loved it. I liked the fact that a lot of the film had no dialogue, and was still captivating.

DS1 thought it was very clever, but has since pointed out that the merchandise has lots of packaging, which doesn't fit in with the message of the film very well.

DS2 cried in bed the night we saw the film, because he wanted Wall E to be real. He wants to go and see it again using his own pocket money.

And you normally have such good taste, Cali... you were nice about DD's name when lots of people were ganging up on it (not on one of my threads, just on a random thread) so I will forgive your not liking WALL-E

I for one loved it and will willingly go back and see it. Sorry CF. Loved the music but always was a great musical fan . Great message and nope it went straight over the kids's head but hey it was aimed at the adults. Thought the "adult" humor was excellent. I shall look forward to buying the dvd no doubt at Christmas.

SofiaAmes · 27/07/2008 05:44

My kids enjoyed it, but thought Space Chimps (which got terrible reviews) was much better.

ChopsTheDuck · 27/07/2008 07:50

agree with califrau's posts. considering all the hype, I found it dissapointing.

the message went straight over my children's heads. it was slow and the twins got fidgetty. i heard other children saying they wanted to leave. mine much prefered Kung fu panda.

it reminded me a bit of the raymond Briggs film about the old couple in a nuclear war - its about as depressing as that andnot really a theme for young children.

OhYouBadBadKitten · 27/07/2008 07:51

Am very glad we chose to watch Prince Caspian yesterday then. we all loved it - very captivating, very sad.

Marina · 27/07/2008 07:57

Loved Wall-E but found it rather bleak viewing at times. Beautiful film. Dcs liked it too

paperchain · 27/07/2008 07:58

so I missed the adult humour?

LOL at "resting eyes". We all know what that means!
