some planets must have aligned because

Whoa, dude. All three boyz want to go see WALL*E.

They have never, all three of them at the same time, wanted to see a G rated movie. In fact for the past decade or so, the older two have rejected movies based on a squeaky-clean rating.

Rotten Tomatoes has a firm grip on their world and it says 98% approval. That's good enough to overrule the horrible stigma of a G rating? That's what it takes? This power must be used for good and I wish it would expand into other parts of life. ["broccoli gets 89% approval rating! And George Bush Sr hates it! that's good 'nuff for me"]. I hope the movie's worth the hype.

  1. We saw it last night and the adults laughed more than the kids. All kinds of cool sub-text commentary on our disposable society and virtual living. The movie makers love their Macs and there are a few subtle digs that PC users may miss. I'm ready to go see it again, cuz I swear I missed a ton first time around. And get this--there's even a secondary romance! It was too funny.
    Have fun!

  2. Sounds like fun.
    I could never coordinate movies with my kids either, nor with my husband. Probably why we hardly ever go se a movie.
