Wall-E (with the voice of Ben Burtt) is the last working robot on Earth and spends his days cleaning up the massive amounts of trash humans have left behind. He also takes a little time to watch old movies and hang out with his pet cockroach. Things change when a visitor from space arrives and gives Wall-E something else to do -- like save humankind and find a lasting friendship. Also with the voices of Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard, John Ratzenburger, Kathy Najimy and Sigourney Weaver. Directed by Andrew Stanton. [1:37]

(Note: Presto, an unrated 5-minute short directed by Doug Sweetland, precedes the main feature. It is about a magician who forgets to feed his bunny right before a show, and a hungry tummy and the frustrated showman collide. In terms of Sex & Nudity, a man's pants are ripped off and we see his underwear. In terms of Violence & Gore, a man sticks his fingers in an electrical socket and shocks himself, his hair sticks up, we see electrical currents and his body smokes but there's no blood and he continues to perform on stage; a man falls from a high ceiling but is saved at the last minute, while heavy items including a piano fall and smash on the ground; a man smashes his hand and yelps in pain, and a man's fingers get caught in a snap mousetrap, they are red and swollen and he yells in pain; a man pokes himself in the eye twice, and a man is hit in the stomach with a ladder, and then the ladder hits him in the crotch and on the head; finally, a man violently smashes a carrot. There is no Profanity and no Substance Use, Discussion Topics include the dangers of electricity, the proper care of pets, magic, performing, sharing, and friendship, and the evident Message is that we must not take our friends or co-workers for granted.)
