The power of kid-movies
The rest of the family came out from the movie theater with smiles on their faces. Each child recounted their favorite funny moments in the movie. I came out feeling depressed. Which movie? Wall-E. Sure it's a sweet movie with lovable characters, but the preaching is a bit much for me and the attempt to provide an upbeat ending, after much of the movie is spent in one depressing locale then another, is too little, too late, and too Pollyanna even for an animated kids' movie.
Anyone else wants a chance at the soapbox before I store it away?
