WALL-E

Seven hundred years after humans have left Earth behind because it's too dirty to live in, one robot remains: WALL-E. Each day he works to clean up the mess left by the people. When a rocket lands and sends out a mysterious "female" robot named EVE, WALL-E is immediately in love. But when he gives EVE the plant he's found as a gift, the rocket comes back for her. WALL-E hitches a ride on the rocket to stay with EVE.

The pair of robots end up on a giant spaceship carrying the last people, who are large, lazy and self-absorbed as robots tend to their every need. WALL-E and EVE's arrival with the plant makes the people hope that they can return to Earth. When an evil robot tries to keep the humans from returning home, it's up to WALL-E, EVE and their human friends to save mankind.

Both the robots are good stewards; they are careful about the environment and they work hard to do their jobs right. They also show real love for each other by protecting and rescuing each other from danger. The film sends a strong message that laziness and caring about things more than people is wrong. Although there is some violence and danger, it's mostly silly. There are a few action scenes that involve characters in danger, but Pixar was careful to keep this movie appropriate for kids.

This cute and funny movie about two robots falling in love has a lot of good lessons to teach Clubhouse kids.
